I sent my college student her first care package this week, and I thought I'd share it here with you too. I sent her several things I knew she would love including the sweetest book about words that I found. (I'll have to show you that later as I didn't photograph it before I sent it to her) I wrapped everything using things that reminded me of her.
Z is for Zie, short for Mackenzie, and the name she prefers to be called. She collects thing with the number 5 on them, so when I found those vintage tickets at Papier Valise I scooped some up just to use on packages for her. (the Z came from there too) I used plane kraft tissue paper and some old lace on this one.
I used vintage twine and strings, and kept it simple as that is how she loves things.
Of course we sent her favorite sugar cookies too, baked by her sister. And guess what? My college student is on her way home for the weekend! I've been fluffing her room and I'm going out to make sure we have some of her favorite foods at home and a big bouquet of sunflowers, her favorite! Can't wait to hang out with my girl.
Thank you to all that shopped with me yesterday and today for the reopening of the shop, and to those that emailed me to let me know how much they loved the new design. I appreciate you all, more than you know.
