A Big Box of Happy

Recently I won the fabulous giveaway over at File Me Away. As I kid I won the cake walk so frequently that I believed you just walked in a circle and then they gave you a treat, but this is the first time I've ever won anything as an adult. Honestly, I couldn't have been more excited if I tried! 

Due to the whole move and move again fiasco I had to wait for what felt like an eternity before I was able to give Megan a mailing address. Boy was it worth the wait! 

My spoils:

Those suitcases are so pretty in real life! I'm torn between actually using them, storing craft supplies in them, or just putting them on display. Within the littlest one I found a lovely card, coasters with knitting instructions, a little frame magnet, an apron, and the coolest little cookbook thing ever! I don't cook, but all of my mother's recipes came from similar books, and there are tons of blank pages inside for notes (although I don't think I'll ever want to soil the pages with my handwriting). 

Please forgive me if it seems like I'm bragging. I'm just really excited and wanted to share. I will definitely need to have a giveaway of my own at some point so that I can pay it forward. Thanks again Megan! You're awesome! 


  1. Wow! What a great giveaway! I love those suitcases!

  2. First of all, it's not bragging. :)

    Second of all, I am painfully envious! I entered this give away too, and am somewhat enamored with the suitcases! SO COOL.

  3. What is with you and Mandy just winning everything? This is getting a little unfair.

  4. Oh my gosh!! That's so cool! GAH I'm jealous. You should stack the suitcases and use them as a night stand! Ha

  5. Ang - Thanks. That makes me feel better. <3
    Wes - I will agree that Mandy does win a mass amount of merchandise, but since this is my first I think it's still fair. Unless I'm guilty by association?
    Liz - I might just see if I can make that work!

  6. Yay! I'm so glad you like everything! The book is actually a repurposed notebook made from vintage books - you can use it for anything, although I have yet to doodle or draw or write in mine :)

  7. I guess that would technically make me guilty by association, so I'll stick to being jealous of Mandy. Even though she only wins girl stuff.

  8. If I ever win any boy stuff, Wes, I will share. ;)

    Such cute things! <3
