Today is my birthday!! I woke up this morning to a voicemail left by my Dad, singing Happy Birthday to me. Best Dad ever! :) I will officially be 26 at 5:21pm. So, when my Alt For Everyone goodie box came in the mail a few days ago, it felt like a birthday present:
It was chock full of fun little things! Let’s have a closer look…
BlueQ packed a bunch of nifty things inside of their Cameras pencil case: the Chief Financial Officer coin purse, “Raisin Cookies” fruit gum, “Pee a Little” wet wipes (which remind me of Suzi, but she’d kill me if I told you why), and — my personal favorite — The Monster That Ate The Stars mini book. Hearing Stan read it out loud was downright hilarious. I wish he had let me record it!
These cute little cupcake flags from Lingering Daydreams would look spectacular on my birthday cupcakes… ;)
Alt Summit sponsor Bing included this mason jar mug filled with jellybean-esque cherry candies. #thanksbing!
Those letter blocks? They’re crayons! The Childhood List handcrafts them with bee and soy waxes, so they are non-toxic and safe for the environment. So fun! I love the little hand painted pouch they came in, too.
This pretty fabric pendant necklace was handmade by Zelma Rose in Northern California. She also included a button that says “I have love in my heart for you” ~ aww. ♥
I make my own lip balm, so I’m pretty picky about wearing other brands, but I love this one from Ivory + Ash. It’s organic, and made with apricot oil, shea butter, coconut oil, beeswax, and flavored with sweet orange essential oil. It reminds me of an orange Starburst (it may surprise you to know that the orange one — not the pink! — is my favorite!).
And last, but definitely not least, is this pretty set of “hello” notecards and envelopes from PixelImpress. I think I will send a few notes to friends with these.
I’m off to enjoy by birthday by packing & making products for my rapidly approaching debut at the SoWa Market in Boston!
