    Well, a box arrived for me today! Shamefully I opened it, curiosity was killing me and Christmas is too damn far away!

    I didn't think it was going to happen... but I cried. And when you see what I got... the thoughtfulness... the beauty of it... the personalization... and the note that came along with it... you will understand what and who moved me to tears!


    THE WHAT
    IMG_1102.jpg

    I OPEN THIS BOX TO FIND THIS INSIDE

    IMG_1106.jpg

    MY MOUTH FELL OPEN!

    It's an antique, handmade, Leather Journal Writing Notebook, for writers and artists!

    IMG_1103.jpg

    IMG_1105.jpg

    *The symbol appearing on the front of your new journal is commonly known as the Celtic Compass Rose and Sailor's Knot of Journey and Return. It is comprised of two symbols, the compass rose depicting the four directions on a map and the Celtic eternity knot depicting the cycle of journey and return. It is a perfect symbol for a personal journal meant for recording life's journeys, be they routine or extraordinary, as well as life's return to those places we call home. We hope you enjoy your new journal and sincerely wish you much happiness and success in your journeys and returns.*

    Now you understand what and who brought me to tears!

    Um well I've used paint before but no that's the first time on leather. I'm not very artistic so I had to finagle some stencils but hey it came out pretty good.

    I received it and thought that it wasn't personal enough so I took an hour or two and made some mods :p

    I mean @Averie did kind of hand all the matches out and the first time someone got a package she was so excited that she demanded it be opened right away :p so why shouldn't the rest follow suit haha

    Yet another reason to NOT open it, just post pics of the package, that you can't see into, and let @Averie get all excited and can't do ANYTHING about it! /tease

    Ok in my defense, kinda hard to tell it was from my Secret Santa when it was just an amazon box :p It wasnt wrapped or anything. LoL I know a lot of us are ordering presents online for kids so hard not to open to see which item came in! :p I have had several amazon packages come to me. So yea... Sorry lol

    Supper cool!!!! I've never seen those before... wonder if you think it can be hand painted before assembly? That's a wonderful gift idea!!! I know several relatives who really enjoy putting puzzles together but this puzzle MOVES! :)

    First, it was you uploading a picture of your package and now your uploading a picture of mine! How many times have we discussed (in your bedroom - taking boner selfies) that what happens at the NORTH POLE stays at the NORTH POLE!

    :rolleyes:
