A while ago I stumbled across a fabulous idea on Pinterest: slipping colored pencils and coloring pages in a clear bottle and mailing it. It was such a pretty and fun package! Intrigued, I clicked through to the original post and found that the author frequently sends what she calls "happy mail," individual items or creatively packaged gifts that are 13 ounces or less, addressed, stamped, and mailed! I read the whole category and immediately resolved to send some happy mail of my own.
This week I seized the moment and sent my niece what I called a birthday in a bottle. I think she'll have fun getting it, but I'm pretty sure it won't even compare to the fun that I had putting it together.
