Amazing Note in the Mail today!

HapThe Best Team Money Can Buypy Monday All!  Ok so this isn’t craft related and it’s not the Spinach Dip Recipe (which is coming) but I just had to share this today!

I few weeks ago I bought a book for my Husband called “The Best Team Money Can Buy” by Author Molly Knight.  He told me that on Twitter she said if we send a copy of the receipt she’d send us a book plate!

So I was like Ok sure!  Well I got it today!

To be honest I had NO idea what I was getting.  I thought it was like a Book Marker.  The envelope had no return address or anything.

 

Book PlateHere is the note I got. I was like Wow, maybe it was from one of my Ebay customers because I normally send a little Thank you note card & if they are a new customer I add my Business Card to it which has my Etsy shop on it.

So anyway – my Husband comes home and I said “Hey look what someone sent me in the mail today?” He was like “Hey that’s from Molly Knight, the Author from the book you bought me?” I was like WHAAATT???? He goes Yeah, I’ve seen on Twitter where others are Tweeting out that they got there’s and are sending in pics!  I couldn’t believe it!  It truly made my DAY!  Sometimes you have that inner doubt about things you make and something like this happens and it just makes you feel really Awesome & Good inside!

Ok, well just had to share that! I’ll be getting back to my recipe now and will have that for you 1st thing in the morning with a few pics and all!  As always thanks for stopping by and…..
