My friend Faye lives 240 miles away. I’m lucky enough to see her maybe once or twice a year. Superman and I got to hang out with Faye and her husband, Larry, while we were in Banff, Canada.
After dancing the night away one evening, recovering with a glass of wine and Larry massaging Faye’s feet, she told me about the surgery she was about to have. Get this…the surgery would entail the surgeon extracting fluid from her eyeball, then inserting some sort of gas. For the next 7-10 days, Faye will have to lie with her face down…24/7!
PEOPLE! Can you imagine?!? 24 hours a day for 7-10 days! Yowza!
When I saw this idea on Pinterest, at happymoneysaver.com, I knew this was for Faye.
I went to Target and looked for “yellow” things: M&Ms, lemon drops, Werther’s candies, chocolates, lip balm, tissues, lemonade packets, lotion, pens, protein bars and a yellow handkerchief. I crafted up a plastic tumbler with her name on it, then put the lemonade packets inside. And I put the fall issue of Life:Beautiful Magazine, which not only is a beautiful, inspiring and “feel-good” magazine, it had the color yellow on its cover.
This was a fun package to put together. Can you think of some other yellow items I could add next time? Of course the Dollar Store would be a great place to shop.
Thanks for stopping by!
