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.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!
