Yesterday I woke up to a wonderful surprise! I knew it had been snowing all night, and the first thing I thought when I opened my eyes was “I better get up and shovel the sidewalk”. So, I get up to check out what I had in store…and somebody else had already done it…before 8:00 in the morning!
Well, I couldn’t let this kind deed go unnoticed, so I decided to put together a little Thank You.
You may remember this lot from a few months ago.
Aha I thought! The perfect gift!
So, I gathered what I could find to cobble this gift, the jars (of course), bakers twine, dictionary pages, and various décor to cover the “Happy Birthday” on the only bag I had.
I knew I didn’t want to hassle with trying to adhere paper to that bag, so I printed a design from a scrapbook paper download I had purchased from Etsy onto some sticker paper. Then I found some paper with some metallic designs, a label from Joann’s clearance bins, a Tim Holtz butterfly, and a little wordstrip.
I stuffed the jars and card into my little bag, threw on a scarf, and trudged over to the nieghbor’s house…this is where it gets interesting…
…my neighbor didn’t know what the heck I was talking about, and he tried handing my bag back!
Here’s the crazy bit! Not only was my sidewalk shoveled, but my driveway, the path to my house, the neighbor on the other side of me, and the neighbor two houses down! I asked him if he thought maybe his wife had done it, (she wasn’t home at the time), and he said she didn’t mention anything to him about it.
Now I don’t know about you, but if I had done all that shoveling, the first thing I would do was take a picture and send it to my husband…maybe post it on Instagram…or even write a blog post about it. Heck, I’d do all that if I only shoveled my OWN yard!

Anyway, I needed to thank them for the Christmas gifty bag they brought us during the Holidays, so there you go, but I’d still like to thank the right person!
Oh well, I just wanted to share because I had so much fun putting this together with what I could find around the house. Hope you enjoyed my little story!
Until next time,
Thank you for stopping by,
