{This bundle is put together by me with my own funds (with the exception of any sponsored items listed) and will be shipped by me to one very happy you!} 

Let’s take a closer look at what you could win::

{3} Washi Tape / Paper & Ribbon Embellishment / {3} Highlighters / Post-It Tabs / Binder Clips

Fabric Flower Embellishments & Lavender Sachet

** And hold the phone … where is MY handmade contribution to this bundle?? Well, ehem, I might have forgot … but fear not, it will be included … a BRIGHT mug rug to cheer up your desk. **
