Temptalia Thanks Tanya for Showing Her Holiday Spirit!

This afternoon I received the most lovely surprise–a package from one of my very own readers. Tanya, a regular reader, and her son, Jacob, hand crafted me a cat-girl-doll (I’m gonna that is so utterly adorable. She has long eyelashes, pink lips, and even purple eyeshadow (is this not perfect for the blog?). There was also a handmade makeup bag in an olive green velvety fabric with a floral print inside. It feels absolutely luxe because of the outside fabric, and so durable because of the thickness and quality of the craft. I have already started using it, because well, I couldn’t resist, I adore it.  Tanya also included a bath bomb from LUSH in All That Jasmine, which I cannot wait to use (it’ll be my first LUSH bath!).

Because of her generosity, I cannot help but share photos of the special handmade gifts she sent my way and thank her publicly for her efforts and thoughtfulness. It was truly an unexpected gesture and gift, and I cannot begin to express my appreciation and thankfulness. I started tearing up as soon as I realized who it was from and why I had a package from her!  She reminded me of what makes the holidays such an amazing time of the year–it is a time when people spread love, good wishes, and maintain a spirit of holiday cheer.

THANK YOU TANYA & JACOB!
