****Elloooo My Ladies... It does feel good to give a smile...If you live in a close knit neighborhood, or attend church..You could start a nice tradition, call it ...Give A Smile...And invite others to use their imaginations, and ideas to make these thoughtful gifts for people you know that may be going through a personal crisis, someone that is a shut in, or someone who is depressed..Could be to just show a best friend that they were in your thoughts... I have my own craft business and I also make other things on the same lines...say someone you know loves to bake..Buy the ingredients to make say ...some awesome brownies. Buy an inexpensive pan and place the items in there..With the recipe (if you have a computer you will be able to create some really interesting personalized recipe cards) Examples: Put in the ingredients, maybe a cute or colorful dish towel, a small bag of nuts, a cute fridge magnet, cookie cutters ect...if you buy one of the foil pans with the lids..You can take the same stickers that you use to do scrap booking and directorate the lid... you can do the same with ingredients to start a pot of homemade soup..Layer the ingredients in a glass jar with a lid you can seal with canning wax...print or write out a recipe and make it like you would a Christmas name tag..Use string or ribbon to hang it on the jar...add ribbon and a bow...Layer some ingredients for hot are something's to add to hot chocolate..Like cinnamon, nutmeg, with all the flavored powder creamers you can use them for a layer or two..Chocolate sprinkles, or multi color ones...Just go crazy...LOL... Another one that works well is, go to a Goodwill, flea market, yard sale.. And get a small canister with a self sealing some flavored coffee and pour it in the canister.. Set it in a small basket lined with a nice dish towel..add a small jar of flavored creamer, Some pieces of dark chocolate, a elegant glass coffee mug...fix it up and make it a fun basket...when you're finished..Take some saran wrap and put a piece long enough to come up and reach the top of basket, then another piece to bring up the other way and meet it at the top twist together and use a ribbon to keep it closed(like on an Easter basket) ..make a card or tag and there you have a very nice gift...Have any ideas?
