Thinking Outside the Box

Good day, friends…

I’ve been meaning to share this with you for some time now.  Quite a good many months ago, I mailed a package of goodies to a dear blogger friend.  I just couldn’t resist sprucing up the outside of the normally dull postal mailing box.  The white background lent itself nicely to the blue ‘skies’ and pink roses buds, which I painted on two sides.

Just another way of thinking outside the box, and giving a little cheer to everyone involved in the mailing process.  I hope your day is filled with blue skies and pink rosebuds…if not outside, then definitely within your own being.

Thank you for visiting Leisure Lane, and…Until next time, may happy days abound!

    So beautiful! I agree, decorating the package is so lovely! I love to buy greeting cards with decorative envelopes more than just plain white envelopes! You are so creative!

    Taking time to do this makes the actual packaging a gift from the heart – beautiful and delicate.
