Example of a Crappy Day Package #1

A Lovely, Lovely Person* sent me a Crappy Day Package a while ago, and I thought that everyone who comes here looking for "Crappy Day Present" might like more ideas, so here you are:
(She also sent some dissolving-capsule sponge toys for the children, and a horse toy for Marie, but the children were package-magnets that day and were ALL OVER that box before I could get their things in the picture.)
  1. Cute, happy looking socks
  2. BEAUTIFUL, BRIGHT, NON-STAINED kitchen towels
  3. A pretty bandana (in the very back) that was used to wrap the horse toy
  4. Some wonderful handmade soap that smelled so good that I REALLY wanted to LICK IT (I resisted.) (It was hard!)
  5. PRETTY clothespins!!

I think these were my FAVORITE!  They are so PRETTY:  pink background with a green paisley design.  I use clothespins to close various bags in the kitchen, and these will be MUCH more pleasing to the eye than the plain brown ones!
Thank you again, Lovely Person, for brightening my (and my children's) day!!

*I will be keeping Crappy Day Present senders anonymous so that the sender doesn't have to worry that Person Q is going to see what they (the sender) sent me and possibly feel bad that their (Person Q's) package was not as fabulous as mine ;-).  But if you don't worry as much as I do aren't worried about that, you are welcome to claim your package in the comments!

I was all over those clothespins at the store! I know where they're from!!! :) Super pretty. I use clothespins to close bags in the kitchen, too.

Those are awesome CDP ideas--thank you to you and Superjules!

You guys and your Crappy Day Presents, I love it! I wish I could jump on the bandwagon, but I am AWFUL at getting to the post office (and now with a baby on a never consistent nap schedule, I'm even WORSE!) But SOMEDAY, when things are predictable, I SWEAR I'm going to be like you all! :)
