forty in a box.

my dear friend susan, aka spicy turned forty last week. she is one of my most loyal, loving friends. and, my life is blessed beyond measure to have her in it. so… it was a sad day to not be with her to celebrate her big day. to make up for my absence, i sent a special package her way. You are my fave blog is featuring this special box today. it was one of the funnest projects/gifts i have ever planned, and wrapped. six hours of wrapping, to be exact. {in case you were wondering. all done somewhere between 10pm and 4am} and that darling colored paper? you can find out where it is from, here.
