Survival Kit

Happy Tuesday.

I wanted to share a project that I made recently to give to my son. He just graduated from University in June with his Bachelor of Architectural Studies. He went back this summer to work with the architecture firm in Toronto that he did a co-op with last summer on a four month contract. They have offered him a full time position within the firm effective September 5th. Proud mama here.

I created a Survival Kit for him to put into his desk that is full of things that might just come in handy.



Advil Cold & Sinus
Breath Mints
Dental Floss
Blister Band-Aids
and a Tide Stick

I made one of these kits for my hubby many years ago and he still uses it and refills it when supplies get low. A few things have been added over the years but he always tells me how much he appreciates having it. His was packaged in a small white lunch tin but I couldn't locate one quickly when I made up this kit for Ben.
