what a GREAT day!

Today was a great day! I went to the gym, finished cleaning my house, received 2 of the best mail possible, spent an obscene amount of money (for me)with Michelle at Croppin' Paradise, and actually ate dinner with my husband (that I didn't have to cook!)Whew! It doesn't get much better than that, even on your birthday! Shell and I went to CP to spend the money that we made from our mom making composition books. (Thanks for the shopping spree mom!) I got way too many cool things to showcase, but it was very exciting because they had so many cute things. They have a huge selection of Lil' Davis chipboard which is hard to find, but unfortunately they don't have the new KI paper in yet either. It's hard to come by! (Sorry to bore all you non-scrappers...) Anyway, that was great. I got a package from my mom which is always the best kind to receive. Talk about good mail! It always contains the perfect mix of things for yourself, home decor, and your child(ren), and today was no exception. It included: a super cute picture for my kitchen of an orange and yellow flower (my kitchen colors), 5 Orange and yellow tea towels that I coveted from her, a bathing suit for me, a bathing suit for Bella, a darling dress for Bella, a bud vase with fake water and pink roses (I love anything with fake water), a Rebecca Sower idea book, a "J" hook, blankets and hats made by Rita for the Bereavement Program at the hospital, and some ribbon! All just because! Thanks mom- it's perfect! (Now to try on that bathing suit...)
But the best news of all is- I got my first package of donations today!!! Bazzill delivered two boxes to me, and I am so psyched! Are you ready for this?

They sent me no less than 175 albums, 35 packs of buttons, and 34 packages of fiber!!! No kidding- I am all set with albums! This is going so amazingly, and I am so thankful, and blessed, and excited! I am still awaiting some albums and embellishments from Chatterbox, and maybe some from American Crafts. I am going to start assembling kits soon. I love Bazzill. They are my heros! Support Bazzill- they are awesome! I am at a loss for any more words, so this picture will have to do the talking. Congrats to Lola's Legacy!

Congratulations on the donation from Bazzills. I have been following the posts on "Lola's Legacy," and I am sending my support from New York. (actually, I'm in Pennsylvania right now, visiting my parents) I am excited for you! - from the random girl who reads your blog

Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh!!!! I am so happy for you I could cry! I cannot believe that they donated 175 albums! Yipee! I knew you would carry this out! Congrats, Jess!

Wow that's big news! The albums were going to be the really expensive part anyway, so now that they're covered the rest should come along nicely--woohoo. I'm so excited about this and so happy for you that your vision is coming to fruition so quickly--well done.

Love that picture! How cool is that? Bazzill really came through for you and even though I already support Bazzill way too much, I'll have to do my part a bit more! Congratulations! I'm so impressed that you had the fabulous idea and just went for it. Resistance didn't rear it's ugly head this time. But, it's amazing what we can overcome for our children.

Wow- Congratulations on the donations. It is amazing when companies are willing to donate and give stuff to a good cause. I too already buy Bazzill, but will definetly make sure I do more.
