Feelings of Guilt

I didn’t plan ahead for Jon and Sean’s birthdays, which happened to be right after the cruise, so we decided to just give them cash without packaging. They’re guys; they won’t notice or care, right? Wrong!

They both mentioned they appreciated their gift, but they look forward to the packaging as well. So, these two ideas are the result of my feelings of guilt. The apron is for Sean, a new stay-at-home dad, and the camera is for Jon, my favorite photographer. I hope they like their empty packages and that you do too (along with the semi-instructions)!

These are inspired -- works of art, empty or full. And I can tell they are full of love. No guilt required.

Your projects are so, so cute; I'm so glad you shared these with us!

Bravo! to the boys, too!! Not only for their "personal" interest in your fabulous creations, but that as "men," they are interested in the packaging, too! Hooray for Happy Hearts! TFS!

Oh no, you gave them a gift without your famous packaging??? At least you know they appreciate your creations. ;0) They are great packages and I'm sure they won't mind that they are empty. I'm also sure you won't do that again!! Yeah for creating, inspiring, and sharing what comes from the heart!
