Look what the Postman brought!

Hey there,

I have a funny story for you today. See, I was reading Tracy's blog one day, and she was having a contest. We had to tell her what we would buy from JetPens if we had $25 to spare, for her and us to share. This is a very fun contest idea I think. First, because, well, it's JetPens. Like it's difficult to build a wish-list from that store. Anyway. It's also real fun because you chose things you would like Tracy to discover too! I had a lot of fun building my list, which amounted exactly to $25. And guess what, for the first time ever, I won something!! Exciting! Except... I didn't know I had won. You need to understand, I really like Tracy's blog, I read it everyday, I follow her on Twitter, and her blog is in my RSS feed... how could I miss the numerous posts she did about the winners, especially the ones not giving her their addresses (oops) ?! Anyway, I did miss them... I only realized I had won when Tracy understood who I was from chatting on Twitter ('You're HM??'). Now I don't know if you know, but Tracy is a very nice person. Of course I don't really know her, but from reading her blog, her interactions with people on Twitter, and exchanging myself some emails with her, I can tell you, she's super nice. You're still not convinced? Well guess what. Even though the day to mail out the contest gifts to the winners was long passed, Tracy asked for my address and send it to me. When I received it this morning, I was over the moon (is that the right expression?). AND, to top it all, she included surprises!! Now you're convinced, right?

Here are the pics, in situation, in my Leon (because of course, I use my gift in my Filo!):

Here it is! My beautiful elephant tape holder!! And look at that tape: one roll with animals and one with cars! You can find it here

And here are all the extra surprises I got! Some blue Martha Stewart notes, some purple Post It flags, some cute removable tabs, on which I put a golden sticker, a very pretty pink flower, a little sticker, some '!' flags, another cute little sticker, and a little hot dog!

Thank you sooo much Tracy for this package!


  1. You are too sweet!! Thank you so much for writing about it :)))

    Ps- the flower is a paperclip, got it at jetpens, I think they call them d-clips!

    1. Oh wow my first comment, thanks Tracy :)
      I had forgotten how those were called!! Paperclips!! Right now I keep it at the beginning of my Filo, it's so pretty :)

  2. How cute is that tape dispenser, I love it:)
