Dear Secret Elf,
Like Susan, I have had a crazy past year, but mine began 2 years ago. I left a difficult relationship with 4 of my kids and purchased a home in a small town. So in the process a lot of my supplies were put on the back burner and later damaged due to a sewer back up. After several more leaks and fixes I think we are on the way to a happy home, but it hasn't been without a lot of struggling! I also left a job of 15 years for a different job in a community closer to our new home. It is still a bit for me to drive but I do have more time with my family after work and in the evenings. My oldest daughter lives in another province with her boyfriend so I don't have a lot of chance to see her anymore.
One thing I can tell you is that I love chocolate, and if you are in the US, I LOVE Dunkin Donuts coffee. It is a luxury I never get!
I also have a tassimo brewer and latte beverages for it would be sweet! I also love handmade items like jewelry, notebooks, etc. I would also love instructions for items you may love to make if you have time to include them.
I have a few things I would love to see in my secret elf package. First things I would love are
Gorjuss Girls stamps. Specifically: The Fawn, Simply Gorguss Ruby and Winter wonder.
Stamping Bella: Mo Manning Big Girl Pants, Game on Mo Manning and Jack and Ginger Mo Manning.
I LOVE brads and Prima flowers. I love glittery brads and bright colored flowers. I would love DP pieces, even if you have lots and want to cut me a selection down into 6x6, I would be happy! In fact, feel free and get creative and if you want you could send me a coordinated kit of goodies. I would be in heaven! Items I use a lot of include the brads and primas, but I also love satiny or taffeta ribbons and bakers twine. I love angel mist type glitter sprays and stickles. I also LOVE adhesive pearls and rhinestones. I use punches a lot and have just 2 for edging my paper. (My mind is a blank with trying to remember everything now! Sorry!) I always love having extra supplies such as adhesive and dimensionals on hand as well. The closest supply store is now 45 minutes so not just a run over to stock up mid project. Really, I am not very fussy. I have a few things I don't use much like stickers and buttons so I would rather not get those.
On the twelfth day of The Holidays ,
my Secret Elf sent to me
Twelve (12) Prima Flowers ,
Eleven (11) cups of coffee,
Ten (10) Pearl embellishments,

Five (5) GOLDEN glittery items,
Four (4) feet on bakers twine,
Three (3) adhesives,

I love scented lotions and little things to pamper myself, as I really don't do that enough, and if you are a reader and have some spare books you no longer want, please feel free to pass them along!
I hope I have provided enough for you to figure out something fun! I am sure you will do great! Thanks in advance Mr, Elf!
