Fill in the Blank Friday

If you're a regular reader, you may have noticed that there has only been a single post since this Fill in the Blank Friday and last week's Fill in the Blank Friday. I've seriously been sick since last Thursday! I'm so over germs, you have no idea ;)

1. Giving is almost always better than receiving! I love shopping for other people, and wrapping the things that I specially picked out for them is always a gleeful tradition.

2. Receiving is awesome as well. It's fun to see what makes other people think of you.

3. The best gift I ever received was a box of lomography goodies from boyfriend last year.

4. The best gift I ever gave was a Care Bear care package to one of my best friends after her breakup. I stuffed a huge silver box with a blanket for her to cuddle along with a bunch of other goodies- all Care Bear themed. To make it even more special, the box was from a gift that someone gave me at my housewarming a few months before. It was so gorgeous that I kept it, and was happy to pass it on to someone else who would appreciate its beauty (which she did!)

5. Something intangible that I wish I could receive is adventure.

6. Something intangible that I wish I could give is inner strength to those who need it most.

7. The one gift I always wanted as a child, but never got was a real dollhouse. Although, I did make a pretty rockin' Barbie mansion out of my bookcases!

  3. I hope you're feeling much beter!

    The care box you made for your friend sounds so awesome! I think care packages, with fun little things that are needed in the moment, are the best kinds of gifts to give!
