    Survival Kits

    A Traditional Housewarming
    Bread - So you never go hungry.
    Wine - So your life is always sweet.
    Salt - So there is always spice in your life.
    And a Candle - So you always have light.

    #2 -

    Bread so your larder will always be full
    Salt to give it savor
    Honey for a sweet life in your new home

    #3 -

    Bread so you'll never go hungry
    Salt so you'll have good luck
    Wine so you'll never be thirsty.


    To help you survive the housework
    so it doesn't drive you totally berserk...
    Mounds for the mounds of laundry.
    A starburst to give a burst of energy.

    A lollipop that will help you to lick it.
    A stick of gum to help you stick with it.
    Snickers to turn your frown upside down.
    A lifesaver so in clutter you don't drown.

    A tootsie roll to keep you rolling along.
    A fireball to keep the mood burning strong.
    Now housework can wait for another rant,
    but the hug & kiss is cause loving can't!

    How sweet are thy words
    How sweet are thy words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my taste. Ps 119:103
    - Almond Joy: ...leap for joy...your reward is great in heaven. Luk 6:23
    - Bit-O-Honey: Pleasant words are as an homecomb, sweet to the soul.... Prov. 16:24
    - Candy cane: ...thy rod & thy staff they comfort me. Ps 23:4
    - Gum: "chews' ye this day whom ye will serve,... Josh 24:15
    - Gummy bears: Bear ye one another's burdens... Gal. 6:2
    - King-sized anything: King of kings, Lord of lords 1 Tim 6:15
    - Mint: God 'mint' what he said when- & the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. Gen 9:15
    - Rocky road: straight is the gate, & narrow is the way Matt 7:14

    Mammogram reminder
    The original idea was pink & white M&Ms in a cellophane cone with a tag that was decorated with a pink crossed over ribbon with a ribbon rose on it:

    Because I care
    There is something you should do
    Not just for me or just for you,
    But for all those whom you hold dear -
    Please have a mammogram this year!
    It might be a bit aggravating
    To be squished & squoozen
    But you know that the best choice
    Is the one you've chosen!
    You will feel much better
    When all is said & done,
    But if not - then here's a treat -

    Menopause Wand
    they used wood the ones you make kabobs with. I found a package of 100 at a local dollar store. These were about a foot long. I plan to find some cute clip-art to put on a basic star shape and have a poem on the back. I've still got to figure out how to attach it to the skewer. Any ideas?

    enjoy your deserved retirement
    new opportunities have just begun!

    'Mug' your neighbor
    I got this idea from church. We have coffee mugs and put a church leaflet in the cup along with some tea bags and candies. We take them to people in the community to invite them to church. We call it "mug" your neighbor. I thought this same idea could be used for anything. For example, My Mom and I enjoy singing. So, for her I placed her favorite tea, kisses and Hugs candy, and a Karaoke tape of her favorite song so she could sing along in the mug. I wrapped it up with cellophane and a ribbon.
    On the tag, I wrote, "You have been "MUGGED"! And, a few special words to her as well.
    You could do this with anyone's interest, it is such a versatile idea. Anyway, happy crafting.
    God Bless, Nikki
