I don’t know about you, but I get very uncomfortable when receiving a compliment. I love them, don’t get me wrong, but I am not the best at accepting them. I was taught to say ‘thank you’ immediately upon receipt of a compliment, but even though I feel my manners are usually in check my first response to a compliment is more along the lines of ‘shut up!’ That’s what I say every time my husband tells me I am beautiful–‘shut up’. I got very lucky to have my little heart of gold stationery set featured in Martha Stewart’s Whole Living this December; I knew that there was a small/remote possibility it may be as it was requested months prior, but it wasn’t confirmed so I just thought they passed on it. When December rolled around and I got a text from my dear friend Connie that I was in, my immediate thought was ‘shut up!’ Obviously, I need to work on this behavioral dilemma.
It is Monday, the first ‘bestowal’ of the year, meaning I am giving away a set of the hand-printed lovelies above to one lucky individual, in order to enter to win I would like to know what your favorite compliment you have ever received was, just leave it in the comments below and I will choose a winner to be announced next Monday, January 14, 2013. Good luck!
P.S. This was Whole Living’s last issue they announced they were folding.
