i had so much fun making this and hope cara likes it!

Stephanie, it is a wooden mailbox that i painted in the official "PinkChristmas green." :)
the sides have glittery "PinkChristmas pink" snowflakes on it. I then finished it off with modge podge

I enclosed GoodMail stickers from Jill's GoodMail Queen etsy store (Thanks Jill!) and I made homemade cards.

The dark chocolate bars accompany my flourless chocolate cake recipe, since she is a baker and loves chocolate.

Also, Cara mentioned that she wants to read again someday so i made a journal with blue and brown ribbon on the front (her current fave) so she can write down the recommendations she gets for books.

This has been so much fun. I can't wait for next year.

Kristi, thank you for making it happen.
