“The paradox of gifts: I know what I have given you. I do not know what you have received.”
~Dr. Sun Wolf
Good Morning Stampers! Need a great little gift idea? I needed a couple this past week-end so got these great Maine-made chocolates (from the Nature’s Place aisle at Hannaford) and made a bag topper with a home-made gift bag to put them in. I used Cool Treats stamp set for the sentiment and Flourish Thinlits Dies for the leaf and berries. The chocolates (made down on the coast in Rockland) come in different flavors, so the colors can be changed up:
Such a fun little gift to make and give! Maybe your state/country has some locally made food item that you can do the same with? The possibilities are endless! : )
Speaking of gifts, I was given a surprise gift, two times over this week. I have been entering stamping challenges for the inspiration they provide, and this week an Earth Day card that I made and sent to the Festive Friday challenge was chosen as a “fave”. Thank you to the team for that, but most importantly, for the inspiration you provide!
For the very first time, I sent the same card to two different challenges, and it was also chosen as a special mention by the Global Design Project. GDP was the very first challenge I started entering…I love the fact that it is global, an effort of worldwide peace, in my thinking! So thank you to the Global Design team and again, more importantly, thank you for all the inspiration you’ve provided the past few years. It’s appreciated very much!
(I know there is a way to put these badges on the sidebar of blogs, but I don’t know how to do it!)
Last but not least, a shout out to Mary in Ohio who wrote me the kindest email (I printed it out and put it on my fridge!), thanking me for some blog posts. You made my day Mary, and I thank you very much! ❤ Have a great day everyone, I’m off to help my oldest son, Jonathan, set up for the annual garden show. Peace, Dawn xo
