Good Morning. We have sunshine and I think we are having Spring. Shhh...we don't want to scare Spring away as we will still have Winter here in Nor Cal. We always get snow in April and/or May. So for now let's enjoy the sunshine, birds singing, flowers blooming and frogs chanting. It is a glorious day.
On the creative update I have been busy however I am not able to show much due to the gift recipients have not seen them as of yet. The little photo at the top is a gift I made and mailed to my cousin in Utah for her birthday coming very soon. The second photo is a birthday gift I made for a friend and will either mail or deliver in person. The two just above are for St. Patricks day. I am meeting a couple of friends for lunch and we will enjoy lots of laughter and food and friendship along with these very simple packages. I am smitten with using patterns from the thrift store for wrapping gifts, especially the ones I am mailing as it keeps the bulk down and the weight at a minimum. That is also why you don't see fancy ribbons and bows on the mailing packages. I prefer to use stickers and keep things flat and simple. For the two in person St. Patrick's packages I used simple twine and gathered the tissue to give it some dimension. On the back side I punched hearts from paint chip samples and used them for a shamrock shape to embellish the plain tissue. I think these are fun and certainly add to the conversation.
I have lots of projects I am working on so I better go and get to them. I will be able to share them in future posts.
May you enjoy your day and be as productive as you wish to be.
