I had DH take our Disney scrapbook to work with him to show his boss, since she recently had an Orlando vacation too. He said she was impressed with the scrapbook. :) This morning he came home from work with a gift from his boss. Seems she had seen some scrapbooking supplies at the dollar store and thought of me. First off, I didn't even know Dollar Stores had this stuff! I need to find out where she got it because it was really nice.

There were three packages. The first was a set of 9 patterned bday papers, 8/12 x 11. They were really cute, and funny thing is, they would have been perfect for a project I finished LAST NIGHT - invitations for my brother's bday party. LOL

The next was a package of school-related stuff. Cutouts, frames, papers. DS4 starts kindergarten next year so this gives me some impetus to get going on that.

The last was a set of multi-picture frames. Kinda hard to describe, but one was a large cutout of an airplane. It had four holes in it to put pictures in. There were 4 or 5 other vehicles, like a school bus, cruise ship, jeep etc. This is SO perfect because I was have been lamenting the fact that we had no pictures of the kids on the airplane. What a perfect base to build a page around! I have the boarding passes, the "first time flier" wings and a story. Now I have something that will tie it all together.

Sorry for going on and on but I was simply amazed that she was so thoughtful (we have never met and have said hello on the phone one time) and happy that I can use everything she chose for me. She also sent Sesame Street swim rings for my kids since we have just had a pool built. :D How nice.

Sounds like he has a great boss. Someone who really understands how to motivate her employees - not an expensive gesture but one which will certainly carry a great deal of weight with DH.
