I have been toying with the idea of giving Master a new paddle as a gift....for a special occasion. Problem...i am not all that fond of wood, and He has more than enough paddles, in my humble opinion. So i always talked myself out of it....and it was not all that difficult.
So, with Christmas approaching, i started having that same talk with myself. Only this time, i decided pleasing Him was more important than...worrying about my bottom.
So i went to browse at BonniesPlace on Etsy. There is this a link on her blog.... ttwdblondiesblog.blogspot.com She has a nice variety of paddles. I had an idea of what i wanted...i wanted this paddle to be different than all His others, so i wanted it personalized. I wanted it to 'say' My Paddleman....that eliminated the smaller paddles and made my choice easier.
I contacted Bonnie to ask if it was possible to personalize a paddle. One of the things that brings me back to a place to shop, is customer service. Blondie knows how to provide customer service. Every time i sent her a note with a question or idea, her replies were quick and full of good advice. She said they could use a decal....they had already tried it and it worked fine and looked great. She let me choose from a number of fonts she sent me, and went to work. The paddle was quickly ready to mail...and i remembered i was going to be out of town. I sent Bonnie an email, asking her to hand on to it til i returned...did not want it stolen from my front porch....she agreed and mailed it when i returned.
The paddle came, looked great and i could not wait to see Master's reaction. He opened it today...and was very surprised....and of course...could not wait to try it out.
It is lighter that most of His paddles, but it covers both cheeks with a spank...i think that means each spank should count as 2. It is easy to handle, and can be used lightly...or not.
Master then treated me to a flogging and then let me choose what came next. I was very mellow from the flogging....i chose the large strop. Master had me lean over. bottom up and out Master announces 100...i reply that is a lot. But my bottom is well warmed...and by the time we get there, i am in 'the zone'...:) Master stands behind me, and tells me to stay put while He takes me soaring with Him.
I am leaving tomorrow for my son's for a week. My daughter will join us on Christmas eve, and the day after Christmas we will all head up to my sister's to meet up with my siblings and have another celebration. There will be 6 under 6 very excited little ones, ...making it special. I hope you all have the merriest of times, and celebrate in your own special way.
