I'd been meaning to send a package as a way to introduce myself, but, when Zee expressed a desire to send her something, it was the extra motivation I needed to hop-to!
And since first impressions are everything, I put a little extra effort into my decorating. I'm not very crafty... Or imaginative in that way... But it's the effort that counts, right? :-/
My amazing block letters...
And my incredible construction paper skills...
It was sometimes frustrating and disheartening, and I did glue my fingers together on several occasions. And the experience ended with me going to the Post Office today, only to find it closed!
Damn President's Day.
But this little girl kept me company the entire time!
Look at that smile! :D
In other news, I've been madly in love with Swagbucks. It's a search engine that randomly rewards your internet searches with points, as well as awarding points for participating in polls, filling out surveys, and "watching" videos.
After you gather up enough points, you can redeem these points for a variety of prizes. The goal of my points is a $5 Amazon Gift Card, worth 450 points. I've already earned one $5 Amazon Gift card, and in the past 12 days, I've already won 332 points!
You can also earn points by referring people, so here I am! Referring! I told myself I would find a way to earn some extra money this year, and this is a step in that direction.
If you click the banner above and sign up, you automatically get 30 points (also called Swagbucks), and, for their birthday celebration this week, they're offering extra points when you enter the code below:
"If a referral enters the code BirthdayFun while signing up they'll get an extra 25 SB to go with the 30 they already start with. This code is ONLY good for people who haven't joined yet - existing members won't be able to use it."
