Random Act of Kindness

Today I came home to find this wonderful pakcage on my mailbox:

This package is from Lisa (kittyshoes) from the C ricutMessageBoard. For her 1 year anniversary of doing the happy mail swap she decided to send 24 RAKs to people from the MB. Lisa is known in this swap for her beautifully decorated boxes, as you can see above she does beautiful works of art, and I am very GRATEFUL that she chose to send one to me. Not only did she send all these wonderful goodies to everyone but she took the time to personalize them (see charm above) isn't she wonderful!!!

This box just made my day today and I hope I can pass this RAK to someone else. Thank you LISA this was a wonderful box, I am very grateful for your generosity!!!!!!

Now I encourage you to pass on some kindness and make someone smile today ........
