I like surprises.

I hate getting gifts.

When we went to open PJ’s birthday present from our friend Tammy, there were two packages in the box.  One for PJ and one with a card that said it was for the whole family.

PJ’s was this fabulous art that Tammy made to match PJ’s new big-girl bedding.

Technically I commissioned the piece (don’t I sound fancy?).  I sent Tammy pics of the bedding and she sent me a few pics as she was working on the painting.  I knew it was going to be great but…. LOVE IT.

The second piece of art was unexpected and was wrapped with this paper and ribbon.

I was pretty sure I could guess what the theme of the art was going to be.  Oh you crafty people, the extra touch really does make things special.

A surprise – yay.

A present – uh oh.  (My issues with presents are very complicated.  I touched on it here.  If you want me to tell you more, you will have to charge me $150 an hour and have a couch in your office.)

And then I opened it….

And then I cried.  (But not because I have issues.)

Thanks, Tammy.
