New Job Survival Kit

 My mom recently started a new job & has been very busy working long hours nearly every day of the week.  She's also got all the other responsibilities of keeping a home & taking care of family. I knew it was going to be exhausting but since I'm not there to help out & I know she won't take the little time she has to relax, I opted to whip up a New Job Survival Kit for her that would make her laugh. I'm excited to finally share it with you since she just received it in the mail today.

Here's what it contained:
  • Buttons: To help button your lip when its the best strategy
  • Googly Eyes: So you can keep an eye on everyone
  • Pegs: To help you "hang in there"
  • Marbles: To replace the ones you'll lose
  • Lemon Candy: To remind you that "When life gives you lemons you should make lemonade" (I couldn't get lemonade here!)
  • Erasers: Because we all make mistakes
  • A Rope: In case you get to the end of yours
  • Rubber Bands: To remind you to be flexible
  • Gum: To give you that "stick to it" attitude
  • A Smiley Face: To remind you to always wear a smile
  • Batteries: To give you extra energy when you are drained
  • Paper clips: To help you hold it all together
  • A Snickers Chocolate Bar: To remind you that laughter is the best medicine
  • Candles: To brighten the dark days
I managed to find most of the things at the dollar shop as well as the small white bags I put them in. I printed the labels I created on cardstock paper, cut them out & punched holes on the top. Then I tied the labels onto the bags. I then packaged all of the items up in a gift bag.

I had a lot of fun making this & I hope that my mom enjoys it. 

Would you like to make a New Job Survival Kit for a family member or friend? You can now purchase the printable pdf kit from my Etsy shop.

Good luck at your new job mom! ;)
