The Gifted Blog turns 1 next week! WHOO HOO!!
I have a couple of special things planned for my anniversary week that I think you'll enjoy. On Monday I'll show you a gift wrapping project I'm most proud of. It's my favorite gift wrap of the year so far! On Wednesday, please stop by for a thank-you giveaway. (Psst: see image.) Friday will bring another free printable idea!
This has been such a joyful, life-giving endeavor. From the blog's humble first posts to now, I really thank God for the opportunity to "go for it" - to pursue something I love, to take creative risks, to do things I've never tried before.
I had many doubts about writing a blog about gift wrapping. It sounded dumb, terribly specific, and even superficial. But the more I make, write, pray and think about it, the more I'm confident that this is the right thing for now. Gift wrapping is accessible. It's an everyday, democratic art. It honors the people we love. And it's a reason to use the gift of our imaginations and hands.
Thanks for being a part of my journey. See you next week!
