1  My favorite gift! Journal Set & Greeting/Note Cards (IMG Heavy) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Feather82 on: December 29, 2007 10:53:26 PM
Hello fellow Craftsters... This is my 1st post! A very crafty coworker of mine made some lovely Christmas gifts for me. They are really beautiful, and the pics don't do enough justice!  

The first is a set that includes a journal, flower pen, and a jar. The jar contains folded slips of paper with topics for me to journal about. My friend instructed me to blindly pick a slip from the jar, tape it to a page in the journal, and write about it. For example, one of the slips reads "What were your favorite places to go with your family when you were young?" This was such a perfect gift for me-- it's an easy and fun way for me to get back into my writing.

Once I use up the paper in this jar, I plan to refill it with something different, such as different words cut from magazines. Each day I could pick a few words from the jar, glue them to a page in my journal, and come up with poetry that includes those key words. I have tons of other ideas of what i can do with this set! As a gift, it can be easily altered to meet the recipient's individual tastes and interests.

The 2nd set of pics are the greeting/note cards that this same friend made for me. They are for different occasions, such as Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Thank You, etc. Two have vellum paper inside with quotes or  poetry stamped on them.

I couldn't have asked for a better gift! Thanks for looking Smiley
