Well Wishes

Express your LOVE and concern for family and friends by sending "Well Wishes."  Instead of throwing out your chicken and turkey wishbones,  use them to decorate a personal gift made especially for them!

This is what I did:

  1. I washed and saved turkey wishbones.
  2. When dry, I spray painted them white and sprinkled them with glitter while the paint was still wet.  You can also use glue to make the glitter adhere.
  3. I tied the wishbones to my gifts with a small note.  I used jute for one and ribbon for the other.

I made my favorite homemade turkey noodle soup for one of the gifts and put the soup in a canning jar.  When I bring a meal to someone ill, I like to use containers he or she may keep and not worry about returning.

For my other gift, I filled a decorative jar with colored Epsom salt. A favorite recipe I LOVE to use is: 
  1. Combine two parts Epsom salt with one part sea salt
  2. Add two or more drops of food coloring to get desired shade
  3. Add a few drops of essential oil
  4. Stir and fill container
Ready made bath salts work well too or you can simply use Epsom salt alone.
