It was a revelation to me that today was a special day. One that needed to be marked and honoured. I am so glad that my
Today was reminiscent, to me, of our old gift exchange at work that always happened at our Christmas potluck lunch.
Last night I pushed myself for some creative time and made 6 items; poppycock, drink coasters, magic bags for aches and pains or a cold bed. It was very nice to let these colleagues know that their struggles are noticed and that I care.
It’s quite obvious that my fellow author of the calendar did not leave her gift making until the last minute like I did. Her works of art are a serious commitment of time and talent. Trust me I tried this with her and mine didn’t look like this at all. I am sure her coworkers were thrilled to receive these gorgeous gifts.
I’m lucky to have one of these alcohol ink tiles in our dining room; a Janice (rhymes with Denise) original. I would say even more blessed to call her friend.
Late breaking update — I’ve got a little something pulled together for a group of colleagues who go the extra mile at Christmas time and become a stellar band for our party. With a little help from a generous friend we’ve baked them up a treat pack for their last practise. Gifts from the heart just give me warm fuzzies!
