Designer Gift Wrap!!!
I'm sorry I've been gone! I went on a ladies mountain retreat with 3 dear friends last weekend and it was wonderful!! However, I've been wanting to share this story with you since last week....This student of mine is up for adoption and has been through many foster homes and it was her birthday..she loves the art I do with them and so I got her paints and markers and a hello kitty coloring book!! She was thrilled but I forgot the wrapping paper, so you must know that I could NOT just give her an unwrapped gift! So I just painted some typing paper with some grocery store watercolors and wrapped it somehow with that!! She was so thrilled with her own original designer gift wrap... She said "you even painted my gift wrap to make it special!!!!!"She didnt want to tear the paper as she so gingerly opened the gift. A teacher walked in and said..."Oh how wonderful, so you paint your own gift wrap to add that special touch!!" I just cracked up! Sometimes our lack of planning is a blessing. Here is the picture of the painted gift wrap paper!!
