I'm about to start traveling again.
For those of you who have been with me since the beginning, you know a couple of things. That I used to love cake, and that I have a need to travel. It's something inside of me. It's like I've got a timer that goes off and says get moving. I'm in search of some inspiration, and I think I might just find it riding a bike along the canal at Versailles. Maybe.
I'm always cooking up new ideas, and as I announced to a few friends that I would be traveling to Paris at the end of the week, most said something to the effect of, "please. bring me back something. I don't care what it is. because if you pick it, it will be great."
But it got me thinking. So my peeps can't come with me to France, or Belgium, or Spain, or wherever (not yet anyway)... so why not bring a little Paris to them, and that's where this idea blended with the gift idea, and took shape.
I'm putting together some Mystery Boxes while I am in Paris. There are 3 levels of mystery boxes, and very few available, because this is a mystery to me too. There is the Trinket, the Curio, and the Crème de la crème. 10 Trinkets available, 8 Curios, and 4 Cremes. Each Mystery Box will include the treasures or collection of gems, or both (depending on your box level), a postcard from me with illustrations and thoughts from the day that I write, and a little treat (candy, and I think I know just the thing).
And I'll go ahead and toot my own horn by saying that I give and put together some of the finest gifts. It's either a talent, or just a skill that I've really worked to develop, so this will be just as fun for me as it is for you.
So if you've never been to Paris, miss it and are pining to return, dream of it nightly, or just want me to find you a treasure, step right up to a Mystery Box!
***an update! These will only be on sale through Friday, September 7, so I know what I am getting! Thanks so much! I'm already so excited about this.
