I made this gift for a young girl - a friend of the family:
L for Love, I for Integrity, F for faith, E for Ethics.
Each letter is decorated with papers, ribbons, pearls, charms, and hand painted wooden cut-outs.
On the back of each letter I wrote a message:
L - Love : May your life be filled with the love of family
I - Integrity: May your heart stay true to its purpose and may you live your life with integrity and honour
F - Faith: May our spirit be strong and your beliefs be a constant comfort throughout your life
E- Ethics: May you spread your wings and fly like the butterfly, and as you grow trough life's experiences, may you always stay true to your inner voice.

A special gift

I finished a gift book for my mum who just turned 70. It's an altered book which we passed around at her party and all her friends wrote beautiful messages in it. I also took photographs and printed them straight away on my amazing Canon Selphy printer. I assembled the photos into the book as the morning breakfast party progressed and at the end of the party I was able to give her the book from everyone who was there. She was thrilled.
