Random Acts of Kindness - Thank you my Friends!!!

After I lost my job, I set up a shop on to start something that I was passionate about! Making paper goods, stationary, party invitations, etc. One big part of Etsy that a lot of people don't understand is that it is not only an online marketplace for people who sell handmade goods - it is also a community! I found this out right away as I discovered a group of people who devote themselves to something called a "Sneak Attack". I was fascinated by the concept - every Monday and Thursday night several new Etsy shops (with 0-4) sales are selected and announced on a website ( The shops would then get many visits, item hearts and purchases. What an amazing thing to do for someone else who is just starting out! I was hooked from the beginning!! 

The thing about this group is that they are the kindest, dedicated, open hearted, caring, creative and loving group of people I have never met! We have established a great friendship and support system and I've never met any of them in person. Modern day technology is amazing this way!!! 

That being said, my friends, sent me a virtual baby shower in a box today! I am so thankful for such thoughtful, loving and talented friends. I can't thank you enough for all of the gifts as well as the kindness, support and friendship you have all blessed me with!  I love every single item each and every one of you has sent.

Since you all couldn't be here in person to see me open the gifts, I took photos with my laptop, the lighting is great and some things are backwards - but I hope you enjoy as much as I did! 

Oh and PS: there were a few things for Emma, she is sleeping right now but will enjoy her gifts when she wakes up and I will share her photos too! Blogger Templates
