When someone is going through difficult times--whether they are sick, caring for someone who is sick, living with cancer or other disease, working through stress or anxiety, or dealing with any big transition--this care package can let them know that you care and are thinking about them. It is a customized and personalized collection of 17 quotes and Bible verses printed on a key, and each quote or verse is accompanied by a tangible, interactive item with symbolic or religious significance. They are perfect for mindful moments of prayer, meditation, or even play.
The items can serve functional or decorative purposes, as well. Many can be used for jewelry, zipper charms, decorating a small curio shelf, etc. While the kit is appropriate for both children and adults, please be aware that some items contain very small parts and may not be suitable for young children.
The set contains everything you see pictured and will be housed in an upcycled Altoid tin, measuring 3.5 x 2.5 x 1. Please see item photos for sample designs, or request something all your own! We have many materials and embellishments on hand.

For most items, I use USPS priority flat-rate shipping which ranges from $7.15 up to $13.50, depending on the size of the item. The exception is handmade jewelry items, which ship for $3 using USPS.
I do combine shipping, so I can can typically ship up to three items in a single box/package for one price.
Most items ship within three to five business days, and therefore most items will arrive within a week to ten days after order placement. If you need an item sooner, such a a bereavement gift, please let me know and I'll work with you!
By request, I am happy to do overnight shipping, with the buyer paying shipping fees above and beyond the regular shipping costs per item. Most of my listings have a "shipping upgrade" option at checkout; if you don't find this, just let me know through Etsy conversation.
I always provide the tracking number regardless of shipping method. If for whatever reason it costs more to send than anticipated, I will cover the difference.
We accept PayPal, credit cards, and Etsy gift cards
