Homemade Thank You
June 21st, 2011
I don’t usually do posts like this (crafty), and I wasn’t sure if this would appeal to you guys? (please let me know if it does!) But as it is something I L-O-V-E to do, I thought that it might be interesting to some of you ?
This is really an ode to the homemade thank you. I am a firm believer in doing something special when someone has done something special for you. In the age of technology, sometimes it feels as if there are so few ways to make that gesture anymore -at least in ways that feel truly from the heart.
I had a group of women recently that gave me a valuable gift of their time (sometimes the most precious gift of all!) and I wanted more than anything to show them how much that meant to me. This was what I came up with:
If you are interested in sending out a thank you, or even just a homemade gift for a friend or neighbor- maybe consider this method!
I took a wine box in plain wood and covered it in pretty hand made papers and different types of ribbon.
I stuffed it with tissue and my favorite summer cookie recipe, Dark chocolate with fresh mint (recipe this Friday!)
There are endless options, and if you are interested I will share some of them with you!
