Gift Guide: The Creative Spirit
I love to doodle and create things with my hands. Whether it’s knitting a blanket, embroidering a pillow, or cutting out shapes and designs, I always have a need to be creative. I always found it thoughtful when someone would notice a project that I’ve been working on and give a gift of “encouragement.” Usually this meant a set of beautiful of Copic markers or a new sketchbook when the old one is all filled up.
This gift guide is meant for the artist in your life. The one who has a million ideas in their head and only needs to put it down on paper or whatever medium they choose. This guide was also a particular favorite of mine to work because…I also want everything on the list. Happy gifting!
