A Gift That Won’t Pail in Comparison

Happy day to everyone.  I’m excited to see you today, and to share the pretty pail gift idea I’ve prepared for a friend.  If you remember in my last post, where I shared her decorated birthday tag, I mentioned that she loves butterflies – so, I decided to make that the theme.  When I found this delightful small metal pail at the dollar store, I knew it would make the perfectly fun and creative receptacle for her gift items.  A crinkled yellow bow and dimensional butterfly top it all off.

You can see the handmade tag tucked in.

I wrapped some of the items in decorated napkins.

Give someone a gift today.  It doesn’t matter how little or big it is – a smile, a kind word, a compliment, something you bought with them in mind – it only matters that it comes from your heart.  If you open your heart, God will guide you to a variety of ways you can create a smile.  Sow delightful seeds of joy in someone’s life and you will have a big harvest in yours.

Thank you for strolling by Leisure Lane today.  I hope you enjoyed your visit and it sparked some good ideas for you, too.  May your day be filled with blessings, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Happy Card for a Happy Day

Hello everyone, and thank you for strolling by the Lane today!

I’ve been creative today, so I thought I’d share a quick card I made this afternoon. It’s a horizontal card made on some extra card stock I had.  It was so much fun and quite relaxing to do.  Simple line drawings and colored in with some markers.

I’ve been doing lots of swirls in my gratitude journal and drawing lots of cupcakes lately, and thought I’d incorporate some of that in the card.  I’ve been having goodies on my mind a lot lately…LOL!

I hope you all have a delightful day today!  Until next time, may happy days abound!
