Example of a Crappy Day Package #3

Another Lovely, Lovely Person* sent a Crappy Day Package to brighten my life (and it worked)!  So, here is another wonderful example to inspire you with ideas for the people in YOUR life =)!
SO BEAUTIFUL!  I opened the packages VERY CAREFULLY because I didn't want to ruin the beautiful wrapping!

Normally I am CONVINCED that there is an EVEN WORSE day around the corner so I tend to save CDP a "saver", but it would be rude to argue with a Lovely Person, so I followed her directions.

So many pretty packages!

Lovely Person packed as much love as she possibly could in this package by using a heart theme:

There were:
  • Cute cooking stickers (because Lovely Person knows that I am ALWAYS often in the kitchen)
  • Beautiful, delicious, heart-shaped cake decorations (my children are COUNTING THE DAYS until the next birthday because they want to eat use those!  I will likely have mercy on them and make a cake before then.)
  • Heart-shaped post-its!  (I LOVE post-its but would never splurge on the cute ones which I am VERY MUCH enjoying!)
  • Two albums:  "Hope" and "Believe" (I put the pictures of Marie's last special date with Husband in the "Hope" album, and she it is her new favorite "book"!)
  • A stack of beautiful, brightly colored, hand-made squares
  • Moral support in a bag (otherwise known as chocolate Hugs)

If you look carefully, you can see 3 hearts worked into the pattern.

Lots of hearts in this one!

Lovely Person is talented as well as kind and thoughtful!

OF COURSE, it was necessary to try the Hugs RIGHT AWAY to make sure they travelled well, AND it was an EXCELLENT opportunity to use another Crappy Day Present that I quite like.

Thank you again, Lovely Person!  Your package was very much needed and very much appreciated!!

*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!
