I have an addiction.
It’s called sending awesome birthday packages to my dear friend Jennie Doezie.
It can’t be helped. Because then she sends me even more awesome packages in return. And round and round we go.
She just turned thirty-nine this week. That stinker is an entire six months younger than me. Hmph! I decided not to hold it against her and sent her a package anyway.
Our deal is ‘pick a theme and go with it’. Last year I sent her a package centered around graphic elements. It was pretty sweet.
I had a problem this year because I kept thinking of all these great little gifts that reminded me of Jennie. Then it hit me – why not send her a big box full of little boxes. My theme was born: Jennie In A Box.
I made a label for each of the small boxes to give Jennie a hint about which part of her personality the gift reminded me of. Then I filled the boxes, sealed them off and send them to my friend.
It’s so fun having a friend like Jennie. She stretches my creativity. She appreciates the little details that some people might miss entirely. And she has a better camera than me so these pictures look nice. Thanks Jennie.
You’re the best!
PS. Happy Birthday!
