Well, I finished it a week ago, but I finally ironed, matted, and framed it today so that I could give it to my friend Stef whose wedding was two weeks ago.
Oops. She was on her honeymoon, anyway.
She seemed thrilled about this gift. She actually said I was the only one who came to her wedding that actually gave her a real gift and not just cash or gift cards. That felt nice to hear.
I love giving homemade gifts. I honestly (really, truly) feel like giving homemade, heart felt gifts actually feels better than receiving a gift.
You know what else is a great gift?
I know, I’m cheesy and sentimental like that.
But yesterday I wrote a piece of fiction and posted it on my blog – for the first time in what feels like a really long time – and I have gotten great feedback and supportive comments, and those are beautiful, very appreciated gifts.
Let the love spread all around!
