The 29 Gifts Challenge is going well but I don't have a story to share...yet. I will say that there have been a couple days where I suddenly think oh-oh, I haven't given a gift today. It says on the 29 Gifts website that if this happens you should sit back and think about events that happened during your day and chances are you've given something you didn't think of as a gift, but it was still GIVING. And I did stop and think about other things I have given that I didn't necessarily count. Like caring for my grandchildren while their parents work or feeding the neighbors pet rabbit when they're gone for the weekend. Doing special things for my husband or children. The challenge really makes you stop and think about things like that.
I decided to open an Etsy store. Seems many of my beadmaking and other artist friends are doing the same and also vowing to "Buy Handmade". Anyway, I look forward to the added exposure. The purse pendant pictured above was my very first sale, (thanks J.).
