Birthday Package Abroad

photo 2 (2)

I promised I would show you what I sent to Australia for Jay’s birthday. So here is a picture of my “main” gift to him! There are several regulations and restrictions on what can enter the country, so I was careful to obey those rules. I painted a small wooden plaque with one of Jay’s favorite Nintendo characters, Toad. He is the go-to choice for Mario Kart and Mario Party so I thought it would be fun to paint Toad and his female counterpart, Toadette! It’s not the most extravagant gift, but it is handmade. I also hand-made all of the wrapping and bows. I wanted the present to really bring a piece of me to him for his birthday. I hope you will all share other LDR gift ideas!
