And Here I Thought I Was SOOOOOOO Organized....

OK - all these RAKs have proven to be challenging on many different levels. Don't get me wrong - I'm absolutely loving doing this and sharing with all my friends all over the world. Trying to keep everything organized - well - I < THOUGHT > I was so very organized:

I have one WORD document containing all the addresses of friends I'll be sending to. I have a second WORD document that has, in numerical order, the addresses of who I sent things to and what I sent to them. As I send things, I erase their names off the first document and place them on the second. Easy peasy, right? Not so much, as I found yesterday....

I received the nicest note from our sweet Jo of Serendipitous Stitching. She was over the moon because she received a surprise package from me.


Pencil tray in 24Kt gold, 18th Century European Design


Some extra goodies.....

Turns out, I had sent Jo an RAK already - #18, to be exact. Well, guess the SURPRISE was on me. HA! Since it's my party, I'm making the rules.....I'm still counting Jo's (second) RAK as one of the 60....so #36 goes to.....Jo - ENJOY!!

  8. It was so funny! I couldn't believe my luck! The painting really is exquisite too. I'm counting it as a gift for MY special Birthday next month. And I'll be asking my relatives for a gold pen or propelling pencil to co-ordinate too!

  14. You are so busy and productive I am surprised you have time to be organised. Lucky Jo to receive two lots of your beautiful gifts. Not so lucky for #60 on the list though. (Oh my goodness, hope it's not me)! I have been working on a couple of your belated birthday gifts today, you know I am not so productive as you though so no promises as to mailing dates but hopefully not too far in the distant future.

  20. I won't say that I laughed....why, no, I wouldn't do that. Welcome to MY world - organization left up to MA leaves a lot to be desired even at the best of times!

  26. Could easily happen to me as well, lol. So it was a lovely surprise for Jo, and this second gift went to someone who deserves to be surprised a second time as Jo offers so many great blog hops to us bloggers.
