I have the Best Bloggy Friends

So remember back here when I told you I was meeting up with fellow blogger Jill of "Life With Nature Girl?" We had a great time meeting and exchanged gifts as bloggers are wont to do.

Imagine my surprise when I received the most amazing box in the mail yesterday. Can you believe all the goodies Jill sent ~ not just for me but for all of us in the family?   I knew she was sending me some more of her wonderful Zentangle patterns which all of us here love.  They are so inspiring and fun to do. She also sent some very cool Sharpee pens which I hadn't seen yet.    But then ~ she also made Zentangle bookmarks for all of us as well which we are all loving. 
Nate's isn't in the pic because he's already taken it and using it on the Harry Potter book he is currently reading.  What a great gift idea to go along with the books she sent for both of the kids.  2 each for Nate and Julz.  They both love to read so this was perfect for them.
She also sent us some Zucchini relish that Nate is dying to break into, some blueberry jam and maple syrup so that we could have a little of the North down here in the South!  She also knitted me a dish cloth which is beautiful and very soft.  I really don't want to use it to do dishes and Julianne keeps trying to steal it (the child is a kleptomaniac) just to rub against her face.  Weird, I know.
For me (that no one is allowed to touch) were some Tinkerbell stationary and some cards she "altered" to add Tink onto.  They are just adorable!

I have to say though, my favorite thing in the box was sadly not for me ~ but for the one and only Charlie!
Is that not the cutest thing EVER?  It's a soft taggie doll.  I think this may have to stay at Grammy's house so Charlie can play with it here!  The only problem will be Auntie Julz who, although she knows how to read insists that the card says "For Julianne!"  I'm telling you ~ this child has got problems.

Seriously, even though I have thanked Jill privately, I wanted to thank her publicly as well and tell the world WHAT A GREAT PERSON AND FRIEND SHE IS!  So, thanks Jill.  It means the world to me!



PS ~ Don't forget ~ Today is the last day to get in on my Blogiversary Give away!

Thanks to Jill for us, too! Charlie has footies with taggies on them, and she loves them! I know the doll will be a big hit!

I'm so glad it arrived safe and sound. I had visions of Charlie's doll arriving on your doorstep covered in blueberry jam and zucchini relish.
I'm so glad we became friends and I really appreciated you taking time to meet us! I also wanted you to have a bit of the North down South with you. I had a great time making the goodies for you guys! I'm glad you're enjoying them. Tell Julz I'll make her another doll if she wants one and a dishcloth too! He, he!
