She Had Me At The Box

A little while back I was the lucky winner of a giveaway. The fabulous Shara at Monkeybox packed up a box of goodies for me. She had me at the wrapper on the box...
Really? You drew me a Junque Magnet logo?!! How could she possibly know my dream of one day painting that puppy on the side of a fantastic old aqua painted truck (which just happens to reside at the auto repair shop in town...)? But wait, inside she found and shared...
A card from a vintage game with my name on it! My real name. The one I can NEVER find and spent my childhood feeling left out because NO ONE had my ancient and not at all popular name (I am over that now by the way...no really, I am). I of course have mounds of these card games because the graphics are super. I like to make tinsel garlands with them.

It was a box of enormous generosity. This will be my new show apron and NO ONE else will have one like it. There was glitter and paper and Christmas (wait till you see what I've got planned for that reindeer) and...WOW! Miss Shara - you are a junque goddess! I don't hand that term out very often so please know I'm putting you on a pedestal! A million thanks. Stop over and visit her Monkeybox. She is always sharing her terrific finds and humor.

I met Shara when I received one of her wonderful boxes of goodness! She is one special lady. Congrats to you! I can't wait to see what you do with it all!!!! As for the name problem...I went through that too as a kid, with the name
Le Anne!

I'm so happy that you liked your box of goodies. Thanks for the Pedestal! If Carrie and Le Anne (She's a doll too!)can't find their names - try being SHARA. :D can't wait to see that reinder. I'll get my sunglasses ready! Bedazzle!
