Gifts From The Cape

I am still missing my vacation time at the Cape. Ok maybe not the cold weather, but I am sure missing my friends and the cupcakes. I started my new job this week working for Target. Its an amazing company and I am so thrilled to be there. The department I work for is at the corporate offices and there is an incredible amount to learn. I am getting my sea-legs and trying to get used to working outside the home and I come home pretty tired. I am lucky to be awake at 8pm. lol Its an age thing I am afraid. So, I dont have alot to share this week. Pictures of me pulling my hair out trying to learn new stuff or sleeping probably would not be too inspiring. LOL So, I wanted to share two special gifts I received from my friends on my trip. My very favorite souviners I brought back home.

The first is the sweetest basket made by Carol. She is an amazing seamstress and always has the best ideas. Her quality is outstanding, and if that wasnt enough, Carol has many talents. She is an amazing cook and baker. She makes fudge. Its not just any fudge either. Its ooooh Fudge! It is so creamy it comes in a jar and you eat it with a spoon. Man, I am so hungary and that sound so good right now. Dang! Anyway.....she made each of us this special gift to celebrate Mothers Day. What a sweet presentation. Thank You Carol. You can see her incredible work at or

The next awesome gift I received was from my friend Marie. She makes the prettiest soaps and sweet lotions. She made each of us this adorable jar that she filled with hand made sea shell guest soaps. Also another wonderful presentation. Maries products can be found at And how lucky we all were. So, even though I am home and I have begun a new career I still have my pretty souviners to remember my special trip to the shore. (Well, the fudge is gone now:( ) I hope everyone has a great week. Until next time,,,,gail

Hey Gail,

Thanks for dropping by. Today was my first day of work, I was exhausted and now having a headache. Guess I'll be sleeping early tonight. LoL. Hope it gets easier when you get more accustomed to your job, and I hope you have fun. Beautiful gifts you've got from the trip!
