Altered tin


box

I've made this for my midwife who will be seeing us for the last time this week. We get passed on to Plunket next week I guess.

I'm sort of ho-hum about the box. It's okay but I think it could be better. But still, it's going to have a gift voucher to L'Occitane inside it so I guess that makes up for it!

DH thinks it's dumb to get a gift for her since she is already getting paid to do her job, but as I said to him, it's nice sometimes to be thanked for doing a job anyway. At least, we always appreciated any thanks we got from our clients at work. It makes it worthwhile and gives everyone warm fuzzies all round.

  4. The little box is gorgeous. Such a beautiful colour. I am giggling about your previous post - I relate to the sock thief - not the nursing pads lol.
    Hope you can wangle coming to the cyber crop... could be well worth it if Toot Toot gets her timing right!!!

  5. I agree with you. More and more I do 'thank yous' - what does it take? Not much. How does it make people feel? Great.

  6. I agree. It's nice to be thanked for a job well done. And it's nice to thank (too). Satisfaction both sides :o)

    a gift is a great idea and plus there is a special connection I think with a midwife all the months of pregnancy, birth and aftercare.
