With Anna going away to school, I thought that I would make her a gift that would make her feel better when times got rough. Yes, there are times when I can be nice to her.
I took a simple photo box that was marked down and added some ribbon and a huge bow. I normally would have spray painted a shoe box but I'm running behind on time lately.
I knew that I wanted to do something like this for a while so I started collecting little trinkets that were on sale a while ago. There is some nail polish, a movie, a little bowling game, some bath stuff. Nothing that was too expensive but just a little something to put a smile on her face.
I also have been asking family and friends to write her a little uplifting and/or funny note to add to the box. That way when she has a bad day she can take out a present and a note. Awwwww, I can be sweet sometimes, can't I?
I think that I'm going to make one of these every time that someone is going away to college. It won't cost that much and will be original.
Thanks for stopping over,
