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!!

Oh honey you are such a sweet dear to have made this precious little girls day so special. I love how the gift wrap turned out. I agree with Martha, those designs would be great on Hallmark gift wrap papers. Blessings to you and to this little lady. May all her dreams of family and a forever home come true, very soon!

That paper is gorgeous- it's amazing the untapped creativity in each of us! That little girl will probably always remember the kindness that you have extended to her. That may, some day, enable her to reach out to another little girl in need... and so the love spreads!

WOW - a gift of more art. Bless you for encouraging her to be more creative. Maybe she could use the beautiful hand painted paper in a collage.
