You know you are going to love a book when a friend recommends it with this…
“OMG… this book made me think of you. You absolutely have to get it!!”
So of course I did… and yes, I absolutely do love it.
The book is the recently released Care Packages by Michelle Mackintosh.
Michelle Mackintosh is on a mission to encourage people to reconnect with each other.
She says “Making a care package for someone special in your community who, for one reason or another, has made a difference in your life or the lives of your friends and family members is a lovely thing to do”.
Care Packages brings back the art of crafting packages with love and care.
The book has 240 pages, split into several chapters including reasons to send a care package, types of care packages, delivery, what to include and projects on how to design, craft, and decorate your care package.
Projects are easy to achieve with step-by-step photography and instructions.
This beautiful book completely resonated with me and my ethos of putting homemade back into everyday living.
When I picked up the book last week I sat with a coffee, intending to have my first ‘quick’ flick through… but quickly realised that this was more than a craft book. Throughout the book, Michelle shares personal stories, tips and helpful information and of course, all the fabulous projects.
If you’ve followed my blog for awhile, you know how much I love to create for others. It’s not how much you spend, or perhaps what you make, but more about the love and care you put into making something specifically for someone special to you.
I honestly believe that for the right person, gifting a handmade gift is really unique and appreciated. Michelle’s book encapsulates this theory perfectly.
This book is for anyone who loves to give gifts.
If you are like me and have your family and friends spread far and wide, then you may already be sending care packages, without even realising.
Care Packages is filled with so many brilliant ideas, fabulous photography and easy to follow step-by-step project instructions.

This is definitely a book I whole heartedly recommend for anyone who loves to gift others with homemade love.
If you’ve already picked up a copy, I’d love to hear what you think of it.
Happy crafting and reading my friends,
Hugs – Kerryanne
