Case in point: I set a set of bracelets to the incredibly sweet Kait because she won a contest my shop was featured in. I made this set of bracelets especially for her. They were not listed in my shop and no one else in the world would have this set --- they were made just.for.her.
And someone stole them.
She got her package today, which by the way, I spend a good amount of time putting together. I tied the bracelets together with a cute little bow and put them into my chevron bags & decorated the bags with Halloween stickers. I hand-wrote her a 'thank you' card & put all of these items into a pretty neon envelope and got to use my new Paper Pasteries address stamp for the first time...and someone stole them.
Poor Kait. All she got was a ripped open envelope with a black ribbon and a few gold links in it. Seriously. This is where I get mad at USPS. Why in the world would you give that to someone with no explanation? Did no one think "oh, this doesn't look right?" --- Furthermore, my address was clearly written on that envelope, but did I get a notice that my package had been torn into? No, I did not.
So...to you who stole Kait's prize - shame on you. A lot of time, effort and money went into making that for her. What you did was mean and hateful and I can only hope that you get shown the kindness in your life that you robbed of Kait & myself. Maybe that will make you a better person.
