So here's what I sent Kari. This resulted from a combination of using what I had (and could find, since the guest/craft room is a total disaster right now) AND trying to send things that went along with her personality/interests.
Since she and her hubby are about to move into a new house, surely she'll get some great housewarming gifts, so she'll need some thank you cards, right?? I jazzed up a few of them with some fabric flowers and buttons.
Kari's kind of a book freak, so I thought she might like some cute bookmarks. I got the idea here. I originally made three, but the cats got the blue one. Oops...
She mentioned that she was considering doing a nautical-type look in her master bedroom, so I wrapped up some candles with rope and threw in the extra rope. These aren't too theme-y, so if she changes her mind, she can always use these in another space.
Finally, some easy extras: shells (for the nautical room) and some letter stickers (because you can never have enough of those, right?).
This was fun, and although it came at a time when life was really busy, it was a nice distraction. And who doesn't love getting non-bill, non-junk, non-important mail?
Hope you enjoy, Kari!
