This is Ruth, my sponsored child from Kenya. Her birthday is coming up in March and I've been trying to think of fun little things to send her every week from now until then. I can't send packages because people would steal them before they even reach her. I can only send small, plain, white envelopes. No special labels or writing. Nothing that would make it stand out as something of value. Sad, but this is the way it is.
Usually, I send her some small piece of artwork or a photo of an interesting picture. My goal is always to make the most fun little treasure appear when she folds open the envelope flap. Today I sent her one of my butterfly postcards that I sell on Etsy and a little bracelet I made of thread.
Of course I had to put the postcard into a plain old boring envelope first. I'm hoping it will reach her because the envelope bulged out the slightest bit where the knot was tied on the bracelet. Anyway, I want to send her a couple more things for fun. Anyone have any good ideas? Remember...it has to be small, light, and totally flat.
