In preparing for our upcoming cross-country move, one of the items on my to-do list was to make some kind of thank-you card or gift. I wanted something simple and easy, but I also wanted to make the thank-you a nice way for our friends to remember us.
Inspiration hit when my husband dug up some strawberry plants to give to a neighbor.
|We have a lot of strawberry plants growing in the front flower bed.|
We pulled up some of the plants and potted them in various containers (random pots, yogurt containers, etc.). Then I made a bunch of little signs that say We'll miss you "berry" much!, and had my little helper (my 3 1/2 year old daughter) stick one in each pot.
I have been giving these little plants away as thank-you and good-bye gifts to our friends here in Toronto.
I am hoping that our friends keep the strawberry plants, and then have a nice little reminder of me and my family once we've gone. You could adapt the sign easily to fit a different situation. For example: Thank-you "berry" much! or I love you "berry" much!
