The Gifted Blog

May 5, 2010

Welcome, New Readers

Hi all! For those of you surfing in through The Lovely Blogger List, or for readers who've just joined us, here is a quick introduction to The Gifted Blog!

My name is Charissa, and I live in beautiful Pasadena, California with my husband and toddler-aged son. I started blogging a few months after my son was born. I had quit my job at an art museum and was looking for a new way to direct my energies.

I realized that of all the creative things I’ve dabbled in, gift wrapping is among the most satisfying. Every gift is like a blank canvas. There is lots of room to play with materials and experiment, and in the end you get to give the results to someone you love!

I am inspired by the idea of redeeming a discardable item. There's joy for me in taking a superfluous, throwaway item and making it useful.
I hope you'll take a look around if you haven't already! If you're curious about the images above, you can read more about them here: Gift Wrapping Arsenal: Gift Tags, Playing With Proportion, and Double Ruffle Gift Topper.

And let me know what you think - I love your comments. Enjoy!


  1. I love the celebrated double ruffle gift topper! And the colour contrast is just superb!

  2. Sil - Thank you for the visit and kind comment! I use Wordpress' tags feature to keep up to date with who is writing about gift wrapping. So please tag your next post - I'll look forward to seeing your work (or any more nice gifts from friends!).
