Make them feel special!

I love everything to do with scrapbooking, stationary, paper, stickers, ribbons and packaging.  The funny thing is, I've never done real scrapbooking in my life, I prefer to use those items to package presents, send nice packages to clients, and just making the recipient of a gift feel special, even before they've opened up to see what's inside!
My thank you note

"Little Africa in Suede"

My packaging and thank you notes with a "Little Africa"!

I'm busy developing ideas for my own personalised packaging, with some very intricate detail done by hand, and some with the help of my wonderful array of paper and accessories.  It's a work in progress, but I'm already very happy with the results so far. 

I also love giving flowers, but oddly don't really like receiving them.  I adore arranging flowers, especially if it's in a special kind of vase or pot, and love using repetition in the arrangement, complementing colours!

Isn't it one of the best feelings in the world to know that someone appreciates the trouble you went through, acknowledges your efforts and sees the value in what you can do?

Ok, I might need some positive reinforcement every now and again, but don't we all?  It makes all the hard work seem like play, and all the time spent extremely worth while......

I hope you are all so lucky to be on the receiving end of pretty packages, lovely words and the smell of roses!

Happy days to each and every one!
