Sending sunshine

Pinned Image

I saw this box full of sunshine as a care package idea on www.pinterest.com .  Katherine Marie posted this idea on her blog, which I love - she takes beautiful pictures!  I’m pleased to say this is one of the MANY ”pinned” ideas I’ve done on my own.  I would love to have you follow my inspiration boards. 

One of my close friends (our cousin) and her husband recently moved to Las Vegas.  Her husband is in the Air Force and they will likely be there for several years.  I wanted to send them a care package and sunshine in a box seemed to be a perfect fit. 

Rather than doing candy and treats, I created more of a house warming gift.  This is one wonderful thing about pinterest – you can be inspired but don’t have to feel pressured to make carbon copies of ideas that you see.  You can make the inspiration work for you!

I included items such as yellow measuring cups, a microfiber cloth for cleaning, a dish towel, small notebooks and post-its, a few disposable cups, and plates for nights they don’t feeling like doing the dishes.  I also included two small baby toys because they’re expecting their first baby this fall.  I think the box turned out very cute and hopefully it will be a little bit of encouragement that brings smiles to their faces.  It doesn’t hurt that the items are super useful. 

What is the last care package you sent to someone?

  • LOVE the idea of a SUNSHINE PACKAGE!! That would brighten up anyone’s day. Thanks so much for sharing this!

    • As I said in the post, I can’t take credit for the idea since it is one I saw on Pinterest but I was able to alter it to suit the needs of the couple I sent the package to. It was a fun package to put together. Even just looking at it made me smile so I can imagine opening it when it came in the mail! :) I am glad that you enjoyed it. Thank you for your sweet comment.
