With my first package I packed a couple of things, one of them being this painting I did on an 8x10 canvas.
The chevron was outlined with pencil and then erased after it dried. I printed out shapes of the states and traced around them to paint them in red. The verse on the bottom is just to remind her that no matter where God leads us, he will never leave our side.
One other thing I packed was a stuffed animal, beagle to be exact, that looks just like her dog, Ellie. I knew she would be missing her a lot. Ellie wears a red Crimson Tide collar, so I crocheted a "collar" bracelet with red, gray, and white for the toy dog.
I also had some other little things in there like fingernail polish and a note, and already have my other package started on.
