A few years back my husband deployed as part of a security detail for a humanitarian mission the Navy was on. It was unlike any deployment he had previously been on. He was on a ship moving all over the place all the time and communication was not nearly as consistent as other deployments. I suppose the lack of communication really played into me wanting to make the care packages he received extra special.
Most of you have probably either done or heard of the "Open when..." letters. If you haven't heard of them, they're pretty great. You choose a special day (anniversary, birthday, ect.) or situations (feeling down, missing me, need encouragement) and write a letter, buy a card, or maybe a little package to go with that situation.
I decided it would be fun to take the "Open when..." idea to the next level and have it kickstart a scavenger hunt for him. Since he was on a ship in the ocean, naturally I thought of pirates. It took quite a bit of planning but I think it turned out fantastic.
My life as a crafty housewife
I am a wife, mother, entrepreneur, and lover of all things crafty. This blog will include tutorials on some of my favorite crafts as well as my thought's on subjects that are important to me. I by no means claim to be an expert on any subject, just a creative girl who likes to DIY.
