Simple Spring gift idea....Mason jar cup with M & M's

Hey everyone.....who sent the snow to Kansas?  I want you to take it back right now.  Yesterday we were burning off the garden leftovers and cutting all our pampas grasses back. Today the ground is covered in a blanket of snow.  

I just finished adding a lot of blog post drafts so I have plenty of fun projects to share this week.  For today, I'm busy packaging orders, answering emails and making doctor appointments.  Update on the girls...they're back in school after a week off for Spring Break.  Josey's shoulder is not right so we were lucky to squeeze her into an appointment with a good orthopedic surgeon this week.  We're suspecting either torn ligaments or a broken collar bone....whatever the case, my girl wants to play softball this season so we're doing all we can to get her healed up.  

How about a fun little gift idea for today? My friend who stayed with us all day in the emergency rooms loves her some iced tea.  I got her this giant mason jar cup and filled it with pastel M & M's and a few truffles tucked in the top.  I also included some amazing iced tea bags that I found online. A simple ribbon along with a hand stamped card, tissue and a gift sack...easy enough.  This friend's husband and son also fixed the farmer's fence where the girls wrecked their vehicle.....so we threw in a steak dinner for their whole family.  
You find out who your friends are in time of need...so we have to take care of them with chocolate and steaks.  :)  Have a good, snow free week everyone.

Very, very thoughtful gifts....hope the best for your daughters (hope it is not a broken collarbone-I just recovered from a bike accident in Sept with it). Fingers are crossed for you all! Spring break timing could not have been better. Take care.
