A friend of mine has back problems and therefore she has to lie down all day. That seemed rather boring to me, so I created a calendar which contains
each day a small gift. I've send it to her without a sender on it, the last day contains pic of me so she didn't know who send it to her til she openend the last day.

Behind every day is a 6 x 5 x 5 cm (about 2.5 x 2 x 2 in) space for a small gift. The total box is 50 x 30 x 5 cm (about 20 x 12 x 2 in)

(I'm Dutch so the months are in Dutch. Mei means May.)

Every day contains a instruction on a note, for example this one. (It's puzzle day! Make them all complete)

And at after the last day I've got this picture back:

WOW!  Shocked

I want you as a friend haha that is SO COOL! i love the random trinkets you put in - your friend is quite lucky (although i hope her back feels better!)

What a great idea! This is perfect for combating the boredom your friend is most likely experiencing.

I suffer from back pain and for almost a year I was unable to do anything. It makes you cranky and depressed. Most people cannot relate and because it is not a wound you can see, many people disregard you and your pain.

 You are a kind friend and will make a much bigger impact than you could imagine! You Rock!

Ya just can't stop a crafty girl!
