Making gifts for others throughout this year in “creative recovery” has been one of the greatest joys of this endeavor. Recently, a number of my dearest friends blessed me with 2 baby showers to celebrate my son, who is a true gift of my recovery. Without God, my program of recovery, & the loving, safe support of these incredible friends, I’m confident this pregnancy could not have taken place.
To attempt to thank them & express my deep gratitude, I created for them some special & personalized gifts.
This week’s creative project: Wooden Quotation Boxes
I purchased unpainted wooden shadow boxes. After painting them, I gathered twigs to fit each one, printed meaningful quotations on canvas, & added hangers to each box. Using hot glue and small copper tacks, I affixed the twigs & quotations in each box.
For my friends who received these, I hope you know even a fraction of what you mean to me & how deeply you’ve blessed me and little Asher 🙂
