Gift Toppers Workshop Recap
A personal accomplishment for me, communicating my love of gift wrapping face-to-face instead of virtually.
silverkeys, Hanna, Makiko, Luci and my sister for their insightful feedback and encouragement. I'm growing to understand the importance of collaboration in this endeavor.
I thank God for His divine, creative spark. The urge to create is a natural outcome of being made in His image. I really think that's why gift wrapping is so enjoyable for me - it's puts me in touch with my made-in-His-imageness.
Finally, thank you, readers, for joining me this past half-year. I appreciate your enthusiasm and participation. Blog lurkers, you're always invited to join the conversation - leave a comment and let us know you were here!
