The Gifted Blog

It's My Party

Guess what. The Gifted Blog turned two today!

I'm turning 30 in the fall and asked some wise friends for their advice on celebrating. Their two cents? Do what you want. Don't feel pressured to make it look a certain way.

So I'm taking a page from their book now and celebrating this blogoversary quietly. I had a great time doing last year's Thank You Giveaway, but it was a lot of work and fell right when we were on vacation. (At least I learned some good lessons!) N and I are hanging out with family now, so I'm going to take the week off to kick back and enjoy.

But I'll make a shameless call for birthday gifts before I go! My main love language is words of affirmation. I loved hearing about what you most appreciate about the blog last year. Would you do the same for me this birthday? (No pressure - but really, it would make my day!)
Thanks for partying (quietly) with me. Here's to another year of creative gift wrapping ideas!

  1. I like this quiet celebration, Charissa. Sounds idyllic. Now to your gift, erm, question...

    My favourite thing about this blog is the range of recycled gift wrap ideas and, especially recycled paper, that I find here. It's obvious that so much can be done with the paper waste that this society creates. So thanks for sharing these ideas with us.

    Have a joyous 2nd Blogiversary, and here's to many more!!!



  2. the ideas you pour into this blog is just generously superb! but what I like most is the friendliness n sincerity of yours.

    Thanks for sharing

  3. Happy blogoversaday! I appreciate that you keep both your audience and your audience's gift-recipient in mind when you post. Oftentimes on blogs & DIYs I find that the projects are too labor- or resource-intensive, but you keep yours easy and do-able yet still very beautiful.
