I am so excited about participating in the “Send Something Good” project dreamed up by Gentri Lee and running on Kaitlyn’s blog, isavirtue. Who doesn’t love getting an unexpected package of specialness in the mail? Wouldn’t the world be a great place if everyone came up with such wonderful random acts of kindness? It’s like a “Secret Santa” only not at Christmas, for grownups, and we’re encouraged to really get to know the other blogger we’re sending a special package to so we choose something they’ll LOVE. I encourage you to think about doing this on your own—just sending a friend or relative a little special unexpected something “just because.” Those are the kinds of gifts that really mean something, because they’re not expected or “Hallmark-ed,” they’re genuine gestures from the heart. You might just make someone’s day!
We are encouraged to share a few things that we love to help our giver learn more about us. So here goes for me:
1. I am obsessed with paper, gift wrap and stationery. I simply cannot resist beautiful gift wrap, ribbon, letterpress cards, notebooks, scrapbooks, etc. etc.
2. I love books.
3. I appreciate handmade things.
4. I love fabrics (even though I can’t sew), especially vintage florals (i have a collection of 40s vintage barkcloth florals), and bed linens.
5. I love flowers (lilacs, peonies, old roses). And chocolate. The two biggest cliches but they always work for me.
