I'm feeling much better today, and just before i get back to my crafting, i thought i should write at least just a bit for you guys...
You might have noticed, and probably read that i collect boxes. even shoeboxes! our last trip to the Czech Republic, i saw this really gorgeous tiny little gift shop, full of sweet things and just cant help it but to treat myself to one!
They had a good collection of shoeboxes, as well as hat boxes. printed ones. i almost fainted! after rounds of elimination, i stood infront of the counter with 2 boxes, as the finalists! i just couldnt decide. i knew i had to pick only one, as we were short of space in the car. and with the price and all, i knew i had to let go of one.
Mum then told me that she wants one, to keep all her beads and craft. and so i felt relieved! at least it's gonna ended up with someone i know! someone who'd appreciate them as much as i do! and so she paid for the big hatbox, and i paid for the smaller round one.
Yipee! we then happily (and me worriedly) walked back to the car, with our husbands (and son/grandson) waiting. they didnt say anything, they just showed us some expressions on their faces (eyes and mouth wide open), we right away said, "murah!!" (cheap!!). we love our supportive husbands very much!!
Anyway... we got back from Czech Republic smiling.. that night after unpacking, i entered my room and the big hatbox was on my craft table, with a little note:
adik, thank you for a wonderful holiday. i bought this for you! with love, mum.
I just had to make her a thank you card. a thank you card that will remind her of the hydrangeas hatbox she bought me in Czech!
Thank you mum...
