Who doesn’t love a personalized gift?
I used to be crafty in the “I made it myself” sense of the word. I used to paint pottery and picture frames. I even sketch a little now and then. I used to sew my own clothes. I even made my own curtains and pillows. Nothing fancy — they were very simple. Crafters know there is a certain satisfaction that comes from making something yourself. But somewhere along the way the desire to put in the time and the effort it takes to “craft something” gave way to the expediency of “store-bought”. It’s is great for saving time and energy, but it also sacrifices that sense of accomplishment hand-crafting can bring.
I remain, however, the joyful recipient of a handmade gift. And a few weeks ago, my friend, Ashley, totally surprised me with an awesome, one-of-a-kind bracelet, hand-stamped with the lyrics from one of our songs called “Stay”. I was completely blown away by the effort and creativity she put into her thoughtful gift. I love it so much we have made them available for anyone to purchase one for themselves. The lyrics were crafted by my wonderful co-writer, Amanda Flynn, and the bracelet made by my friend Ashley @ poeticsoulgifts.com. WIN-WIN!
