A Thoughtful Finishing Touch!

When giving a gift, some people tend to focus on the cost of the gift and not on the blessings that it creates for the person who receives it. The attitude in which a gift is given is actually much more important than the gift itself. “It really is the thought that counts.”

I always try to wrap all of my presents with recycled materials and hand make all of my tags….bits of paper and scraps of fabrics, dried leaves and seeds, drops of paint, string, scraps of card stock or cardboard, so many things can be reused and repurposed to transform any tag into one that is more interesting and memorable – and the best compliment that I get…. is when my friends tell me they loved my wrapping and tags so much they reused it and put it on a gift for one of their loved ones.

In the end it is the sharing and spreading the idea of Recycling and Repurposing is the best gift of all!

The greatest gift is a portion of thyself. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
