The gift of time

Having a little stash of rosettes can be pretty dog-gone handy:

Another quick little box

This little box is made from a single piece of card stock, a little bit of Sticky Strip, and the Simply Scored Wonder Tool.    It was very simple to put together, and all I had to do was tie a little bit of ribbon around it and add a tag and the rosette.

I’m at that point in life where I don’t really need much in the way of stuff any more.  We’re really blessed that way.  I mean, I can always use some juicy new Stampin’ stuff, and I wouldn’t turn down a new pair of earrings, but when it comes down to it I’m ok.  As a result, a lot of my gift-giving is simpler.  I try to find something that my friends will enjoy and find a use for, but I really just want to let them know I love them.

A small hand-made gift shared over lunch (or even better, a pedicure) makes a great birthday gift.  We spend time together laughing and telling stories, and we both have a nice meal (or sparkley toes) when it’s done.  The fact that many of us have kids who are grown or almost-grown makes this a lot more practical – some of my friends still have young children and slipping away just isn’t possible.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.
