The Finer Things in Life

ImageWhat does it take to be creative?

1)Do you try new things that sometimes take you out of your comfort zone?

2) Does your imagination take you to new and exciting places?

3)Do you experiment with new ideas?

4) Do you believe that nothing ventured is nothing gained?

Then,you have creativity in your soul. You don’t think”I can’t!” You feel excited about new possibilities that can happen if you try. If it doesn’t work the first time,you try again.

Do you think any great invention or innovative idea worked the first time. It is always trial and error until that magic moment occurs.

When I make a new gift basket or use a container that I have never used before,I never know if it is going to work until I see how it looks. It make work in my head but it may not look the same in reality. I usually have to make some tweaks until it looks the way I had imagined it.

I created my Gift Basket Making Class so adults and children alike can gain the confidence to know that they can create beautiful gifts without breaking the bank. When you give a handmade gift for a birthday gift, a housewarming gift or any of the many occasions and events that occur throughout the year,the recipient is touched by the thought of how you care.

Since I was an early childhood teacher for a long time,teaching is in my blood. These workshops are perfect for a group of children for an activity at a birthday party or just as an activity on a rainy afternoon.

Children are free and able to express themselves. I love to see the joy on their faces when they have completed their basket and know it belongs to them and they are taking it home. The confidence it builds is worth everything!
