The first one (the one I paid for) was from this awesome site called Pick Your Plum. If you haven't heard of it, go check it out and sign up for their daily emails. They have really cool stuff, and it's all at such great prices! The first thing I ordered from them was a set of six rolls of washi tape. Washi tape is just cute little rolls of decorative tape, that come in pretty patterns and colors! They're kind of all the rage right now in the crafty/bloggy world... ;)
I just used them for the first time the other day, and I think they look so cute! Then my second package was the free one! A couple of weeks ago, I won a giveaway on Beka's awesome blog, and so I won a print from Carly's Etsy shop! She let me pick out any of her 8x10 prints, and she sent it to me for free! I seriously loved sooo many of her prints, and kind of had a hard time choosing my favorite. But I really do love the one I chose! My favorite part of this is definitely the super girly, flowery umbrella! So cute!! Now I just need to go out and buy a pretty frame for it. I'm thinking white, or silver, or maybe even light blue or pink might be cute!
And the reason I ended up picking this print, was because of the scripture verse that it represents. It comes from 1 John 3:1, which reads, "How great is the love the Father has lavished upon us, that we should be called the children of God! And that we are! The reason this world does not know us is that it did not know him."
This was one of the first verses I can remember memorizing. I colored the bubble letters in on an activity sheet, and it hung on our fridge for what seemed like ages when I was younger. I read it over and over so many times, that it turned into a little sing-songy tune, and I've never forgotten it. So not only do I love the colors and graphics of my new print, I also really love what it represents. :) Thanks again Carly!
What cool things have y'all gotten in the mail lately?
