A Care Package.

We are in the business of sending care packages. Each shipping day dozens of LuSa order go out the door, each one wrapped up like a present. I suspect these packages bring a sparkle of light to the person who receives it.

For all of the packages we ship out, we open few. So when I get a package in the mail I am turn into a little kid. I am giddy.

On Saturday I received the sweetest care package from my high school best friend. Recently back from a trip to India, she sent me a tiffin (and Indian lunch box of sorts), a box of my favorite tea, a jingle bracelet for Lupine, and sari ribbon.

Yards upon yards of gorgeous sari ribbon.





It was a great reminder to make time to send packages off to far away friends, just for sweetness. Thanks A. – we're in heaven over here. I'm not sure yet what projects these ribbons will find their way into, but you'll be sure to see the results in the next few weeks!

    Oh, treasures. 😉 I love sending care packages and hand written letters or home made cards out to people around the globe. It makes us feel connected and aware, attentive, perhaps, to our energy cycling around touching people we know anywhere and everywhere. Love it.

    What a lovely, lovely, idea. Your friend sent you some gorgeous things!

    What fun to surprise someone with a package like this. The next time one of my far-away friends tells me that they are feeling a bit blue, I think I might pop them a box of beautiful little things. It’s something fun to do for someone you just can’t see so easily. Thanks for sharing!

    I love sending out care packages, but never seemed to get them back. Then I started swapping online with other artists, and now I get something cool almost every week! You’ve inspired me to put together another package for a friend of mine with this post, by the way! I haven’t sent one to her in a few months…thanks for a lovely idea.

    Online art or craft swaps are fantastic. I hooked up with a couple of great Yahoo groups where we exchange handmade childrens toys, mama gifts, ATCs, etc. So lovely to have those packages rolling in.

    What a lovely, lovely suprise! (PG Tips are my favorite, too…can not go a day without a cup at dawn and dusk. So nice to receive something in the mail that makes us happy…

    We love PG Tips!!! There is no substitute. It is my golden exception to the organic goodness in my pantry. It so good that I think it is grandfathered into healthy somehow. The friend who hooked me on them is the one who sent the package. So sweet.

    I need someone to do a swap with! I’m english so PG Tips are a cheap daily staple (I know – not organic but you can compost used teabags….) Have to go – inspired to have a cuppa and a few squares of green and black!

    When we were in England (this same friend and I) is when we likely started drinking PG Tips in earnest. (She and I spent several months over the years in Chislehurst, Kent beginning when we were in high school.)

    I love letters and packages and everything (but bills) postman brings to our house. And it’s so good to send them to friends! My best friend and I always write letters to each other… It’s a sweet moment to open the letter and feel my friend’s presence while I read his news – not mention that it’s a wonderful exercise for learning patience…

    Big hug!
