A Day Of Surprises!!!!

The husband and I have had quite a week of tough decisions to make and conflicting work hours, which adds strain. So, we were in need of some happiness and uplifting thoughts in our house. I got those thoughts today. I got home from work tonight - after working all day at JoAnn and then heading to the second job - so tired and worn out! To my delight, two packages were sitting on the table for me. One I expected, the other I did not. The first surprise was the from my most wonderful and dear friend Val - from Yarni Gras! When I first met Val online, I stalked and admired an apron she had so smartly crafted out of a skirt from Target. Well, to my delight, I received that apron from her as a surprise tonight. Talk about improving my week and weekend. It was the perfect gift and something so needed, that it has made the week turn from yucky to awesome. Here I am smiling so big in the picture - even my cat likes it:

Then I opened the next package on my table, and it was the sock monster I couldn't wait to receive. Remember how I was the Jr Grand Champion for the Crafters for Obama contest? If not, take a look at my shirt, I am quite proud of my entry! Well, I won a sock monster created by the oh so talented F. Pea. She is amazing. Look at my monster and sticker I received:

I don't know what I am going to name him yet, but the name should have something to do with Obama - at least I think so!!!

As you can tell, I had a fantastic evening coming home. I am behind on a couple of my swaps due this weekend, so I hope to get all caught up by Sunday!! I will keep you posted!


  1. that apron looks really cute on you. glad you liked it! and the little sock monster is adorable.....but you still need a funky monster name for it a him?

  2. Oh, that's wonderful! I just love how little "pick-me-up" surprises come along at just the right time. :)

  3. I'm glad these items were able to make you smile, after the week you've had you deserve it. I love the apron and the monster. Maybe you can name your monster, Sasquatch for old time sakes!

  4. So glad to have helped to brighten your day!
