Greetings from Singapore

After a long day at work with continued stress and aggravation on almost aspects of my life, I came home to a treat. This certainly lightened my mood, even if only temporarily. A smile came to my face when I examined my mail. I think it came right when it was meant to.

I entered a contest hosted by Wisher celebrating Singapore’s independence which coincidentally is right after my home country of Jamaica. I wished Singapore well wishes and I was entered in the contest.

Shortly afterwards, I received notice that I was one of 2 (I think it was just 2 prize packages) winners. Both prizes consisted of I think a yard of fabric, tea/soup and small souvenirs from Singapore.

Without further delay, let me show you what I received.

I love it all! Thanks again to Angela! I really appreciate it. The only bad thing is, I had an accident opening the package (I was so excited) that my magnet fell and the actual magnetic piece popped out and wouldn’t go back in. I’ll fix it though. My favorite thing is the fabric! I absolutely love the print!

I love giveaways. I love giving things away. I don’t know why I do but I do. I take pleasure in picking gifts and wrapping up the packages. A lot of thought takes place in my gift giving. I buy gifts like I’m buying it for myself. I keep in mind the individual’s need as well as about the practicality of the item. I give because I want to, not because I have to. I give because I want the recipient to have a cheesy smile planted on their face! It feels good to get and it feels good to give.

In gift giving, I feel that it’s all in the details that makes a gift special. I saw these cards and I thought they were perfect for the giveaway!

With that said, I want to let you know that I have no affiliation with any company,that is to say, there were no donations made towards these prizes. It is my own money which has been used to purchase them.
