Oh Frabjous Day!

Callooh! Callay!
*Chortles of joy*

If you have no idea what I'm talking about & are wondering exactly which bend I just went around, you need to bone up on your Jabberwocky Poetry. If you get the reference, you're probably wondering what exactly caused me such boundless glee. Well, it was an unassuming little package:

That contained:

YES that's right my 16 new Konad plates! (if you're curious: m19, m26, m36, m37, m40, m56, m57, m60, m63, m65, m66, m67, m69, m73, s1 & s6)

Part of the reason that I'm so happy is that I actually missed the delivery - there was a little card in the mailbox that read "they were sorry that the missed me" & would I like to pick up my package tomorrow or have it redelivered in 2 days? Neither! I wanted my plates RIGHT NOW.

So, with plans of stalking the mailman through the neighborhood, I went out my door & down the stairs - just as the van pulled away from the curb down the street. He drove up to me waving & said "I wonder what you want?" as he got my package out of the back. I danced back up the stairs & tore into my package already wondering which plate I'd use first.

So that decision will probably take up the rest of my evening LOL. Tune in tomorrow to see the results & a fresh NOTD if I can make up my mind =) If I get that out of the way I've got comments to respond to & I haven't had time to catch up on everyone else's blog since I think last Thursday, so I'm feeling a little out of the loop. Really, those people that say they'd be bored if they retired? They don't have enough hobbies, or they don't have Internet LOL. Thanks for reading.



  1. Fun package! You got some good plates and I can't wait to see what you do with them!

  2. I still weep for my jacked up Konading skills. I love seeing what all the other nail bloggers can do w/the Konadicures. ;)

  3. OOOooo great haul!! And good job stalking the mailman :) can't wait for some Konad love!

  4. Wow! 16 plates, what fun you are going to have. I made a list of the plates I want. I have to pick out what Konad kit I want. That was lucky to catch the mailman. I've done the same thing in the past. Done the same with UPS. Which means I have alot of stuff delivered to me. I never get bored. I love the internet.

  5. MARY - The only downside was that it was so hard to pick which one to use first!

    THE PBG - I'm glad you're enjoying my Konis, but I hope you keep trying too - once you get the hang of it, it'll be great!

    NESSA - I kind of think I made the mailman's day more interesting, he seemed to find my reaction to the tiny package pretty funny.

    LUCY - I still have a pretty long list I want - I'm trying to hold out until the State Fair at the end of summer - there's booth that sells Konad & they do buy 3 get 1 free!

  6. lol!! Great timing on catching the mail man!!!

    I want some more plates tooooo............

  7. BROOKE - My mom says "You're not going to wait for the State Fair to get more Konad?" & I go "No way, I'll make a haul now & anothe one then!"


Thanks for commenting! I will read every comment, and try to respond to any questions =)
