Who Wants My Box?


Scarlet, over at As Good As It Gets played the Pay It Forward game and I was one of her lucky winners! I love reading Scarlet's blog. She's always having margaritas with a hottie, chatting with her dad about Cuba, or sketching some nekkid man. If I lived anywhere close, I'd be sketching nekkid with her!

Friday, I walked out the side door and there sat a box. But I hadn't ordered anything. When I looked, it was from way down in Miami! It was SCARLET'S BOX!!!!!

Inside was a card and three little wrapped packages.

#1~ A sweet Christmas card!

#2~ Freakin' Hilarious Cocktail napkins. YAY!

#3~ Wine stoppers. Scarlet, are you peeking into my windows at night? I'm always trying to force the cork back in and then turning it upside down. Pushing harder. Sqeeeeezing.

#4~ Margarita popsicle makers! Now, you're reading my mind. I've looked all over for popsicle molds. We have a little Mexican Paletta shop in town that has the BEST popsicles. I've been dying to try my hand at popsicle making!

I played last year and it was SO much fun! Now, it's my turn to Pay It Forward. This is how it works:

According to the rules, “the exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in his/her turn, pass the kindness along and pay it forward in his/her own way. I agree to send something fun, inspiring or uplifting to three random commenters. In turn, those three will post this information and pick 3 people they want to send something to and so on."

There you go. Easy game. You comment. I pick. You get stuff. You post. You pick. You send stuff. And So on.

Comment dammit! I'll give you all until Friday and then Trace will choose the three winners!

P.S. If you don't wanna play, just say so in your comment.

That sounds like great stuff, and I can't even believe I'm the first commenter! Whoo Hoo! That NEVER happens to me!

Okay, when you make those popsicles you have GOT to post pictures of them!

Monogram Queen said...

Commenting away here! Hmmm margarita popsicles.... interesting

nitebyrd said...

How cool is this!?! Scarlet kinda captured South Florida in a box, didn't she? (I would have included a Palmetto bug, but that's just me. LOL)

This is a really a fun thing to do, congratulations on being a winner and participant!

Awww what a sweet idea! I love it!

I'm gonna do it even if I don't win. :)

Preposterous Ponderings said...

You title is oh so tempting!

If I wasn't so damn broke at the moment I'd play but must refrain this time around.

You got some good loot there girl!!! Enjoy!

Dorsey said...

I love this idea and it gives me a reason to shop creatively!!

You definitely hit the jackpot!!

Have fun with the popsicles and let me know how they turn out!

Shania said...

Me! Me! I wanna play!

Grant said...

I think I'll act as a balancing factor in the force. For every random act of kindness you inspire, I personally will stomp on a chipmunk.

Oh this sounds fun. I don't think that anyone is really local to me (Dallas, GA) or I could toss in a gift certificate from my side business, Paulding Holistic

Any takers?

Recovering Grady Addict said...

PS- That was a misleading title! LOL

Knight said...

I thought the Rabbit was for something else entirely!
I love these Pay It Forward blogs. It makes you feel all positive and productive.

SkylersDad said...

Based solely on the title of this post, I was already booking air fare to see you! Good thing I read the post, that would have made for an awkward moment at your door...

~Jobthingy~ said...

i would die without my wine stoppers. i hate fighting with the corks, altho i have to say i have become a pro at getting them back in somehow.

Scarlet said...

I'm so glad you enjoyed a little taste from down under...Florida, I mean, not Australia (and get your mind out of the gutter, Dimples!).

Btw, I'll be sketching a nekkid man this weekend, so if you're in the area...;)

Good luck to everyone playing the game. Have fun!

Ashleigh said...

Sounds cool. I'd play but I have enough trouble finding time to shop for Christmas. Much less coming up with a cool idea for a gift.

Lame I know.

=)

Akelamalu said...

What a lovely idea and you got some great things in your box! :)

I won't play because the cost of postage across the pond is extortionate these days.

Gary Rith Pottery Blog said...

OH DARLIN', I wanna play, oh yes....
AND I made a neekid mermaid cup and I posted it yesterday. Just sayin'

Jormengrund said...

What a great idea!

To be honest, I'd love to give you a suggestion here..

I propose that you should pick Dana from Amid Life's Crisis for one of your bloggers.. Even if she doesn't respond to this.

Why? Because then it will be COMPLETELY random, and she'll be extremely surprised. That, and I really think she's deserving of some holiday cheer, don't you?

Oh, and when I first saw those "Rabbit" bottle stoppers, I really wasn't sure what they were, and was hoping it wasn't what I'd assumed they could be..

Good thing I kept reading!

Bond said...

Cool little 'game'...and of course my pass-along would be musically inclined

Beth said...

I wanna play too! I love games!!!!

vixen kitten said...

What a great idea! I'll play. :)

Your box looks amazing. Lots of great stuff in there....especially the popsicle makings!

~vk~

tiffer said...

This sounds like a lot of fun. I am definitely in! We sell a sign in my store you would love it says "Margaritas make my clothes fall off"

Lu' said...

Cool idea. I don't think I want to play, well I do want to play but then again I don't want to play, know what I mean HA! I would like a set of those rabbit stoppers.

Dana said...

You know I want to play with you, but people will talk if Trace picks me. Oh hell, let them talk!!

Farmer*swife said...

Oooh, I love these! I love to give prizes! Gifts! Stuff! I love to receive prizes, gifts, stuff!

How fun!

Matt-Man said...

"Who wants my box?" Don't tease me so. Cheers!!

J said...

I want to win!!! I just love feeling special. Plus, getting anything in the mail is fun. (as long as it's not bills)

PS. I love your blog title. It was awesome. Who wants your box? Babe, we all do!

Vodka Mom said...

oh yeah, I'm in!!!

random moments said...

Awww this is so freaking cool! Am I automatically knocked out this time because I'll be in Mexico for a week?? :( If so, I'll have to start my own after the holidays.

Such a cute goodie basket! Love the margarita popsicle idea too.

Craze said...

What awesome gifts and a great idea! I want to play!

Adamity_Bomb_Bomb said...

How fun! I just did a virtual smart ass giveaway but this is really more my speed.

You mean you still have wine left over? You're kidding!

Nolens Volens said...

Isn't that great how you got what you wanted? In the month of Christmas, no less... ;)

Bond said...

Brad said...

Who can help but love Scarlett? She's a cutie with a heart of gold. This was a great idea for a pay it forward post chain - very cool!

Mind of MadMan said...

All of those sparklers are nice also.. My wife would love it....

Sabrae said...

Was that good for you??? Becuz it was great for me! :)

Fu Manchu Dad said...

Not concerned with a prize, just wanted to congratulate you on your win and say enjoy your goodies. You deserve some good stuff. Thanks for stopping in at my place, I am here, just been a bit too busy lately to get in a good post or hardly even a comment. I'm hoping to rectify that tonight. Funny thing about blogging from work is that every now and then there is actually stuff to do around here and doggone it if my bosses don't want work stuff to take precedence. Imagine that!
Take care,
FMD

Anna Lefler said...

Man, you RAKED! Enjoy all your flippin' sweet loot!

Hope you're having a fabulous holiday season and that 2009 brings you all that you wish for...

XO

Anna

CheekyMonkey said...

Okay okay!!! if I take your box, will you post again? Where'd you go, lady?

captain corky said...

Very nice! I think everyone could use a couple of packs of wine stoppers. I know I could. Especially for those very rare occasions when I don't finish my second bottle.

Seraphine said...

you'll get no further acts of kindness from me today.
i listened for 30 minutes during lunch break to a guy extolling me to accept the lord as my savior. he told me i was going to hell, not only me but my family too, if i didn't.
my one kindness is: i listened to him.

Vixen said...

Oooo! Pick me! Pick me!!

*jumping up and down wildly waving arms in the air*

Oh. *ahem* Yes. I would like to be considered. I think this is a fabulous idea. :)

Fortune Cookies said...

Dammit! I missed out on the fun! *sigh*
Oh well, sounds like a hoot! And what a great way to spread good will!

rage said...

I missed out on the fun too. :(

Those were some kick ass gifts too!
