This was originally posted a few years ago (wordpress is being difficult today and I can’t scroll through my posts past a certain point so I am not able to link to the original post).
One of the ladies who regularly comes to classes asked if we could make something special for a family wedding she was attending. The above is the ‘explosion’ box that we made. As you can imagine this box was fairly high in labour and took several days to complete, with ideas being shared and decorations purchased.
I have since learned that the lady for whom the box was made has never commented on it at all – personally I think that is a little odd. But once a project, be it a card or something more exotic, is given to the recipient should we still hold some sort of hold over it? Should we expect a comment on how clever we are, or how beautiful or grateful the recipient is?
When you love to create pretty things, perhaps that is where it ends. You create, you give that is the joy of it.
I’m sorry my friend’s family member wasn’t impressed with her gift, but we were so proud of our achievement and perhaps that should be enough.
Let me know your thoughts.
Thank you for stopping by today.
