What’s better than a car seat warmer during a Maryland winter? This project! which I took with me up to New York for my day trip this week. But before I get there, guess what’s going on in our neck of the woods? A lot of this:
Can you imagine if someone posted a picture of you, on a toilet, naked, onto the INTERNETS? Privacy, please! And, finally, a side view of the belly that practically has its own zip code. Don’t disturb the artiste (he does his best work wearing his Elmo underpants).
Now. Weekend in a Bag was inspired by my Get Better in a Box project. I had minimal space, but wanted to make it count, so I came up with this fun derivation. Tailor it to your recipient’s likes and dislikes, but here’s what I was inspired by. Glitter nailpolish, peppermint vanilla mini-candle, and peppermint chocolates….An iTunes gift card (the equivalent of 2 movie passes or rentals) and a few packets of Starbuck’s Peppermint Mocha—I’m picturing my NYC friend drinking this on Saturday night while watching Love Actually.
I included some hand-stamped stirrers, peppermint stick stirrers, a rock candy stirrer, and 2 homemade marshmallows for some extra umph. (The cookies are just props, I had no extra space available in my tiny little bag.)
Finally, stuff with a little tissue paper, stamp your tag, and Perfecto!
