Only stamping friends can relate to this…..
So one of my goals last week was to find cute red hot chocolate packets. I went to many stores and they didn’t have Dawn Olchefske’s highly recommended Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate with No Marshmallows. I saw a Nestle’s brand that was in a red box, but there was no view of what the individual packets looked like! So, being the ANAL person that I am, I got my phone out and GOOGLED the Nestle brand cocoa that I am holding in my hand to see if I could see a picture of what the actual packet looks like. No such luck. (BELIEVE ME I was tempted to just open the box to look! LOL)
…..sooooooooo I take my chances and buy 6 boxes of them – PRAYING they are the right COLOR so I don’t have to return them. GOD KNOWS I don’t want to use the BLUE cocoa packets that I already have at home from a different project!
God was smiling down on me – not only were they the right color (red and brown which TOTALLY MATCHED MY PROJECT) but they were even CUTE and totally went with the theme of the project. It doesn’t get much better than that! A fun hot chocolate pouch card with cocoa packets inside that say “MAKING WARM CHOCOLATE MEMORIES”! Who wouldn’t like to receive a fun card like that!
Thanks for letting me share my silly story…… Can anyone else relate? Do you ever go down the store aisles looking for treats to MATCH your projects?? LOL
