This is one of the cutest books I’ve read in a long time. It arrived and then the girls took off with it to read and I was left wondering where I had put it. And they keep taking it. They love it. I think you’ll love it too. And you don’t need to be crafty to appreciate this one.
Care Packages by Michelle Mackintosh has just been released and I was lucky enough to be sent a copy. The book details the history of care packages and includes lots of great little facts, hints and tips but it is the photos that really make this book and its just full of them. So many gorgeous photos all beautifully styled.
Lots of ideas, there are recipes, packaging options, supplies to have on hand and lots of instructions too. I love making up gifts for new babies or dropping off a meal when someone is in hospital or sick. This book takes that to a whole new level of beautiful. And you’re going to love it. I’m thinking for school mums, people at your church, neighbours, family, friends and if you have children then they’re going to be inspired as well.
This weekend one of my twins has a party to go and usually I’ll do my own wrapping or sew up a quick bag. But we have a crazy weekend and so I just picked up a simple gift bag at the supermarket, $7.50 when I checked my receipt. For a gift bag!!!!! I nearly died. Back to making my own wrapping from now on.
And that’s why you need this book, you’ll get lots of ideas and can start making care packages for everyone you know. The boys will be out at the rugby from saturday afternoon so I’m looking forward to sitting down and having a really good read of this book. When my girls let me.
Thanks to Hardie Grant I have 2 copies of this gorgeous book to giveaway. Just leave a comment on why you need a copy, please make sure you live in australia so it can be posted out to you and I’ll close off entries next Friday 21st May 2016.
