Recently, I attended a birthday party for some women I know, and each time I think back on the party my heart dances. The presents these ladies received were simple. Think travel-sized lotions and make-up bags, but these tiny gifts induced giggles and smiles.
Even more than lotion and make-up bags, these women loved being celebrated. Don’t we all? Another party is coming, and I wanted to contribute to the celebration, but I didn't have anything to give.
So, I looked in our closet and found these goodies bought on super sale for a party I hosted, but never handed out.
In the bag, these boxes don’t look fabulous, but line them up, and bam!
But, empty boxes aren’t a great gift even if they do have sparkly, blue butterflies on them. So I dug under my bed and found this coated in dust.
It’s jewelry making supplies, and even though I couldn't remember how to string together elaborate designs, I still came up with these.
Then, I enlisted my girl, and she added a little flair to our butterfly boxes.
Ta-da, gifts for the birthday girls.
This process reminds me we all have things to give. No, maybe not butterfly boxes, but talents hidden under our beds, dusty from years of no use.
Dust off your talents. Someone is in need of your mad skills.
What are your underused talents? Baking? Listening? Painting? I'd love to know.: :
