Now...let me just start off with this...I don't know what I ever on earth did to UPS and FedEx, but they HATE me! Seriously, twice at least now they have flat out lied about leaving a box on my porch (once it was in a strangers mail box and the other time down at an abandoned house), and MANY times I have gotten packages in questionable shape. Today was no exception, what was I expecting right? I really think they see my name on something and it's red flagged to try to trash it....
Exhibit A: This poor little box looked like it was part of the UPS weekend company football game - AS THE BALL! All beat up :( Not one corner was a corner, they were all dinged in and it had what would be described on a human as multiple contusions (or if you want to say bruises of the cardboard kind you can).
Needless to say I was a tad bit concerned for the health and well being of the contents...but...drum roll ya'll.........EVERYTHING ARRIVED IN ONE PIECE!!!!! Yup, miracles DO happen other times of the year besides Christmas folks! There were no leaks, no spills, no broken bits and each and every package was entirely there! I sat down and emailed every supplier a thank you note too. It takes people who are conscientious and caring in how they do their job to pack something so well that even FedEx and UPS can't destroy it!
So...I bet you wanta see what I got huh? Well...all unpacked it looks like this:
Here's my quasi-replenished oil stash:
There's a few scents that aren't really my favorite that I bought as samples and in smaller sizes, though they may soap better you never know, a few I just love and keep going in to smell, and some really neat samples and little bonuses :) All in all it turned out to be a happy occasion, though to judge by the boxes they were a tad bit sad upon arrival.
So, I dare say It Begins! Now if only I can find a minute to get creative with this stuff :P
