Feel Better

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all feeling well.  Remember last week?  All of my kiddos were ill, so, I had a little free time and crafted away.  Well this week, I paid for it.  I was very busy with little ones that were used to being home and held by mommy, and, I was not feeling well.  I really don't like having a cold.  There is a lot going around, and, I am not the only casualty.  One of my friends caught a bug too, so, I made this for her:

I started with this (even sick, you need chocolate - he he).  I also included tea, honey, can of soup, and magazines.

I have a few of these, soda carriers from the corner convenience store, and I have always wanted to find a use for them.  I hate to waste such a cool container.

I prettied things up a bit by putting the soup in a canning jar.  I added pretty paper to the top.

Added cool labels.

I had this cute little note pad.

Added some raffia and pretty scrapbook paper.

This is a homemade tea mix.

Crackers for some soup.

I got these cute tissues at the Dollar Store.

Ta Da!!

A nice little care package for someone you love, and, re purpose something you would normally throw out.

Stay Well.
