Pretty Packages

Following my sister's lead, I took a few minutes to make a pretty package for a friend to drop off on her birthday.  It's very small, nothing fancy, just a few handmade cards inside.  Yet delivering it made me and my children feel so happy - we got to see a friend who isn't so close by anymore and let her know how much we love her.

I was fortunate to grab some of these empty flower seed envelopes recently at the warehouse closing sale of Rocky Mountain Seed Co
  (92 years in business, how sad!  People buy those cheap factory produced seeds at walmart now and they just couldn't keep up!)  What I really wanted was one of those gigantic wall units made up of wooden drawers that was 100 years old - a seed cataloging wall unit - but at $2k they were just a bit out of my price range.  So I eneded up with a box of seed envelopes and other fun treasures. It was a fun warehouse to dig through!
I added a home made card to the top and tied it up with ribbon.  I know that I like to feel important and remembered and I'm so happy that for this day I did the remembering.
Thanks, Jennifer for reminding me to take a few minutes to wrap up something pretty!
