29 gifts-

At age 33 Cami Walker was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and the life she knew changed forever. Then, as a remedy for her condition, she received an uncommon prescription from a friend, an African medicine woman named Mbali Creazzo: Give away 29 gifts in 29 days. Cami was amazed by what unfolded during her month-long journey. See this if you want to read more about the challenge
My friend Kimi told me about this book and I am reading it- and inspired .
Kim has been sick so I made her a gift- 29 notes of positive affirmations- folded and sealed  with a flower. 29 flowers!, and I decoupaged a recycled soap bottle for the container. The flowers are punched out of layered origami paper  and topped with a sparkly jewel. Kim loves sparkly things!
 I love making gifts. I want to do the 29 gift challenge! The gifts don't always have to be material things.

What a nice thing to do and the sparly flowers and container will go on for a long time.

I am so inspired today but didn't give a gift- unless the free stuff I brought to the dump counts....
