One Thing Leads to Another - and This Turned Out Cuter Than I Thought

This is an idea that grew into a project.... again. There is a lady who has gone above and beyond in helping our team pull together REZonate every year. She's simply awesome. In a nutshell, she's the reason we can do what we do. Well, at our last meeting we found out that she is going to have surgery this week. She was, get this, getting a gallon of milk out of her fridge and crushed several vertebrae in her neck. Crazy, huh?

So, I was thinking of getting her a card. Which got me to thinking ... that I've got an old antique milk bottle sitting in my kitchen ... and I could get some daisies to put in it and get a card to tell her that we're thinking about her and that she should "milk" it for all its worth. Well ... it became this little project. I made a cow card with a pocket inside for a gift card to a restaurant so she can get some takeout after her surgery. And of course, you've got to have cookies with milk and the colors of my gift back for the gingersnaps I make were perfect ... so ... this is what I came up with - a gift crate with shredded paper that looks like straw. You can't see it in the pic but the 4 little black "brads" are blocks with the letters "M I L K" on them. You'll have to imagine the milk bottle full of daisies and the cookie bag full of gingersnaps - I've still got to do those, but you get the idea...
