GREAT Mail day!!!

I received the cutest gift from a customer today, Andrea from MA, isn't this so sweet! She told me that she was using her empty bottles for small scissors & stitching goodies & made a label for it. She said maybe it was silly & I told her I thought it sounded very cute & I was flattered that she though DSL was her "Pharmacy" so to speak! It's very touching that she thought of this to start with & then she made one for me too, isn't it cute! In case you can't read the label, this is what it says:

Amy Stitches 12/30/08
my address which I've blanked out for posting
Medication: CROSS STITCH
Dr. Bee Happy
1 Kindness Ave. Relaxation, SC
Phone # - CALL AMY & RAY

She printed this & taped it to the bottle & filled it with chocolates! ;-)

Honestly Andrea, you have no idea how I needed a boost today & this sure did it. Thank you so much for being so kind & thoughtful! Ray thought it was cute too! :-)

AND another goodie in the mail that I bought for myself ----

Any other Stephanie Plum fans out there? Guess what I'm doing tonight!?!!

Hope everyone is getting lots of stitching done. Not much here, but soon!

Thanks for visiting & Happy Stitching!

Hi Amy,

I'm a huge Janet Evanovich fan! She is actually going to be here in Mt. Pleasant at the Barnes and Noble tomorrow. I was thinking of going to get the book then, so I can meet her and get it signed by her! :)

What a KEWL idea that your customer had! I've not read the Plum Series, but I've been told by a lot of co-workers that I need to get them and read them! :)

Cindy said...

I'm a HUGE Plum fan. I'm waiting on Amazon to deliver this little gem to my door.

About 5 years ago
I bought a Stitchy Medicine bottle. Inside is a full charted design, fabric, floss and needle. The label is printed up like a prescription. Your Chocolate filled one is too cute!!

What a cute gift!

Brigitte said...

What a "sweet" idea of your customer!

I haven't read the Stephanie Plum series - yet. But I have the books and will definitely read them. Have fun with yours.

Such a creative and fun gift! I love it!!

Melody said...

Amy, Cute idea.

Also, I too, have the Plum Spooky in my hot little hands. I'm afraid stitching will take a back seat to this book....

How lucky is Nicole that she can go to meet Janet at the bookstore!!!

Cindy said...

Very cute :)

I have read most of the Stephanie Plum series, except for the last couple. I haven't gotten that far yet :) I haven't read any of the non-numbered ones yet, either. Let us know how this one is!
