First Impressions are lasting impressions!!!

Today I received an item I purchased off of Etsy! What a surprise, delight and boy was I filled with joy. Hence the designer Suz from "Surprise delight joy". From the time I opened my mail box, it just kept getting better and better.
The Outside of the package was decorated so cute. I love the way she used a cut out letter for the first letter in my name. And not to mention a witches hat! Darling!
Home made designers that sell know how important it is to support the homemade art. There is so much folk art out there that is mass produced. Not the same for sure!! This was a great idea to attach the labels to the outside of the box. It caught my eye first thing.


The box just wasn't any ordinary box.

The tissue was folded with such perfection. I just couldn't keep my eyes off how pretty her presentation was. I was afraid to open it. I didn't want to mess it up. You would of laughed if you saw me. I opened it so slow like it was so fragile.

Here comes the Joy part

Opening the box made such an impact. The first thing I saw was something I hadn't bought. It was a darling little pumpkin pin. So Sweet!!!!

Underneath was my goodie. The item I purchased. It was resting on a bunch of shredded Halloween paper. I just love my Halloween pin. It says, "Magical"!
So so cute. Way cuter in person!

Even the back of the pin was finished. Some artist's just go that extra mile with their art that they sale. You can definetly tell she takes alot of pride in her work and how she represents her product.

Finally the end!

Such to my delight, my little pumpkin pin was attached to the cutest card. It had pictures of Suz Art and all the ways you can find her. I adore this idea!

Suz made my experince buying from her such a pleasure. The thing about it is you never know what you are going to get in the mail when you buy something on line. It's not like you are standing in a store, holding the item and get to look at it up close. Sometimes I feel you take a chance. But take a chance with Suz you will not be disappointed!!
