Capture your passion, what drives you, and package it.
Some of the students came up with some really innovative ideas! One had hers on a cd with a song she wrote and sang. Another put hand wrapped candies in a pinata. The wrappings had tags on them about her. Another put his in fancy glass bottles. And it goes on. This is a very talented class! On top of it, we have a fantastic teacher… a powerful combination that pushes me to work my hardest.
Me, I wrapped mine up in a quilt with a special made tag.
My passion is contained in words, actually, and I started this project by writing words that capture what inspires me to be creative:
- gifting – I love to make purposeful gifts
- writing – keeping in touch with people who mean something to me
- promoting relationships – it thrills me to make items that bring people closer and promote their relationships
Quilting was a perfect way to show these traits and I had the perfect quilt on hand that I had made 2 summers ago. “Not Your Grandmother’s Tumbling Blocks” has a colorful, fanciful, and diverse pattern and a warm and fuzzy backing. It was perfect.
I bundled it up fancy, tied it with a ribbon, and attached a simple tag that actually took a lot of work to “perfect”.
