Christmas in July Arrived at My Home Today!

My very first blog GIVEAWAY concluded at midnight yesterday and the lucky winner is.....(drum rollllll)
mgster, Claudette,, who happens to be the owner of Bentley, a Jack Russell. Congrats and thank you for entering!

Now! I opened my mailbox this afternoon and Christmas had arrived here at my home in the midst of July!!!
Look at the packages I had to carry inside:

The majority of these contained items (and extra goodies) that I had purchased from fellow members of Unique Women In Business. I love this group of talented women and had so much fun opening every package.

First, Aimee with, makes the most wonderful lip balms! I just had to order 6 this time and she was sweet enough to send along a bar of her homemade soap. This one is named "Intoxicating Roses". Doesn't that sound like Heaven? Thank you, Aimee!

The next package contained the wonderful necklace that I have been wanting for weeks from Tracy, with It is even more beautiful in person and just look at those matching earrings! Tracy is a fellow Texan, heralding from Austin and I have been a fan since the very first pair of earrings I purchased a few months ago. Tracy, thanks again!

Finally, Susy just opened her latest shop on Etsy: and I was lucky enough to be her very FIRST customer! See that cute handmade box at to top of the photo? It contains the Strawberry Daiquiri handcrafted soap which I needed the moment I saw it in her new shop. Susy is such a sweetheart! She sent along a mini Green Tea Citrus soap and the cutest wooden pendant. You are spoiling me, Susy! Many thanks and congrats on the success of your new shop.

What a wonderful afternoon! Opening packages filled with such lovelies! Just like Christmas!
