You have gifts to share. When used well, creativity isn’t just about you. It’s about what you have to give. It’s about leaving a mark, changing lives, and sparking a legacy that others can pass on. ~Ed Cyzewski
Back in the day–way back–I enjoyed wrapping gifts. My mom often talked about the year I designed and taped ribbon angels complete with with clouds of hair on package tops. It was fun to wrap a small item in graduated boxes or send the kids on a hunt for a special gift by following a trail of clues.
These days I just slap on the paper and usually forgo a bow. I find a white or light-colored space to scribble a name.
I’m guessing the recipients are more anxious to get to the contents anyway.
I’ve set aside other creative pursuits like quilting and soapmaking and home decorating.
I gave up the garden.
I’ve even misplaced the joy of cooking.
Ed Cyzewski has written a new (short) e-book that’s affirmed my quest to clear the clutter and simplify my space in order to reclaim the joy of creating. I’m reviewing it over at Bibledude.net today. And pssst… It’s free today and tomorrow.
