Cocoa Care Package


The Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop has well over
the last time I peeked in! Dang!

It really is fun to see how popular our favorite drinks are
as well as all the creativity taking place :)
Click the photo above to find out all the details for the

So my daughter is away for her first year of college at
Savannah College of Art and Design
(Instagram @a_walk_in_the_art)
and THIS was her first Care Package
(see above photo).
Obviously, she FREAKED!
(Yay... happy mum!)
You see, she was a HUGE Marvel fan way before
we knew the college of her choice was where
THE Stan Lee
(maker of Marvel Comics)
attended AND graduated!!! How cool is that?!
My goal (hehehe) is for my daughter to
meet Mr Stan Lee and GET A JOB at Marvel :)

For my Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop offering today,
I am preparing yet another Care Package for my girl...

She loves COCOA
(it really is a bit crazy how much she is like her mum)
and she loves BOOKS.
I will be packing up a new ART book and
lots and lots of different flavored cocoas
some other fun things to make in a mug...
candy, muffins, cake for one, and even a candle!
Cute Care Package, right?!

And because the inside
should look just as nice as the outside
(goes for people as well, hehehe)...

I used the cup and books along with the
"happiness is" & "a good book" phrases from

The adorable little leaf is from

The sweet little "cocoa"
is from my daughter's design for
in the stamp set "Winnie's Warm Wishes."

And everything else is from

This was a fun one to create!
Be sure to "hop" on over to the
for more fun ideas!

Thanks so much for visiting!

Awww!!!! What a sweet mommy! We used to send care packages to our kids in college too. And sometimes, just bring them bags and bags of groceries. Now we do it for some of our grandchildren! I was drawn to that sweet leaf hanging off your ribbon right away. Well, right after the cup and books, that is! Wonderful color pallet too. Your card is as lovely inside as it is on the outside too. Mission accomplished. Bev
