Surprise Stimulus

Today I was taking pictures of an item I was going to put up in my etsy shop, when I found a little surprise inside.

A small envelope fell out. I felt the envelope and thought it feels like money, no way can it be money, well it sure was money. Not a whole lot of money, but it definitely put a smile on my face.
Thanks to the little old lady who forgot where she put her stash.

In the spirit of pay it forward I am sending the person who buys the suitcase some of this fun surprise.

We finally got Jaden up to the mountains, so she could learn to snowboard. She has been dreading this day for a while now. She cried the whole morning before the lesson, because she didn't like how she looked in snow pants, and she was afraid to go snowboarding.
We put her in a half day class. When we went to get her after it was over she asked if she could stay all day. So she did. She loved it so much that the next morning she asked if she could take the class again. So she did. She obviously still needs a lot of practice, but it's cool to see her so proud of herself, and to see her love something she thought she was going to hate.

Vintage find

This just might be my favorite vintage find so far. I did put it in my Etsy shop, but if I need to make a cake soon, it will be mine.
