Happy day after Thanksgiving y’all!
So I got a call from my Mr.Solider this morning while I was running around my house looking for my work shirt, and he got his Thanksgiving care package!! I don’t know who’s more excited, me or him! I love making these boxes of goodies, but it’s always a little nerve racking cause there’s that little voice inside my head that wonders if he’s gonna like it, or if I officially crossed the line from “cool nerd” to “holy shiznitz my girlfriend’s weird”. So…I’ll let you decide today…
I decided to go with a Fall/Thanksgiving theme for this one, since it’s Fall and..well it was Thanksgiving, but it’s not my fault his post office was closed yesterday! But can we take a minute to admire my timing skills? I sent him a package for Thanksgiving, and had the post office been open, he would have gotten it either the day before, or ON Thanksgiving! BOOYAH! I’m a pro now! But anywho, I wanted to create a kind of Thanksgiving feast in snacks. So this is what I came up with:
- Turkey Jerky = Holiday Turkey
- Mini boxes of Craisins = Cranberry Sauce
- Sweet Potato Chips = Sweet Potato Casserole
- Little Pumpkin Pie Debbie Cakes = Pumpkin Pie
- Apple Cider
- Salted Pumpkin Seeds
- 3 boxes of Cracker Jacks
- Big bag of Rolos = Best candy known to man kind (His opinion)
- 3 disc DVD set: Charlie Brown Holidays
- Icing Packets (Oreo and S’more)
- Cake in a Mason Jar <–Click for DIY Post
- Thanksgiving Card (signed by yours truly)
So I found this autumn leave scrap booking paper, and I thought it was adorable!! It turned out to be kinda in your face…really in your face…but I thought it was still cute! So then I cut out the little triangles out of some hay patterned paper (I know, totally matches, NOT) and fashioned them into a banner of sorts that elegantly states “I Love You”. Then I made these little “Why I’m Thankful for You” cards on my computer (I may make a post about them at some point) and stuck them around the flaps of the box. I don’t think this man ever has to question if I love him, just by the amount of crafts I make him that say so!
