November is National Gifting Month, an occasion that has been celebrated for several years now. It is a time to take the focus off of “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” and instead celebrate all the special people in our life, showing them just how much we care about them through the perfect gift.
I am an artist who loves to create unique pieces of art that are not only beautiful, but inspire and empower the recipient.
I have created mixed media art as gifts for my family and friends for years. I have received so many compliments and questions on where I purchased these one-of-a-kind pieces, so it has encouraged me to start this blog to share with you some unique gifts that you can give your family and friends.
Gift art is a form of short-lived mixed-media art. This type of art is created for the sole purpose of being given as a gift to someone special. It usually takes the form of an object that incorporates elements of a craft with other media such as photography, paint, or digital design. The craft element is often made with materials or colors that reflect the interests and personality of the recipient.
The choice of materials used in crafting gifts is not always limited to those commonly used in a particular medium. A filmmaker might use pieces of wood in creating a film reel, while a painter could incorporate pieces of fabric in their work. Each piece will have its own set of instructions, but there are some general tips that apply to most projects. These include:
* When choosing the gift’s recipients, think about their interests and hobbies before settling on the final item.* If you’re planning on giving more than one gift, try to keep them thematically similar so that they don’t end up looking like mismatched presents.* Choose handmade gifts over store-bought items because they express your creativity and personality more than store-bought items do.* If you’re making a gift for someone who has everything, consider including a note with it describing how you feel about them
The art of gifting is a very important part of Christmas. It is not the only thing that matters, but it helps make Christmas an enjoyable time.
There are people who think the best gifts are made by hand and there are some who think that the best gifts are bought at the mall. Both of these ideas have a lot of truth in them.
The made-by-hand gives you an opportunity to show your creativity, which is fun for you and your gift recipients. The bought gift can be as creative as you make it by adding your own special touch to it. Still, both categories have their limitations.
Toys are often a good choice as they entertain children and remind adults of how they were when they were young. This year some of the most popular toys were Skye, Marvel Super Hero Squad action figures, Zhu Zhu Pets hamster toy and the Nintendo Wii gaming system. All these toys are great for kids and even adults can get a lot out of playing with them; however, you do need to be aware of safety hazards associated with toys, especially those that contain small pieces or batteries that can be easily swallowed or cause choking or cuts if broken or sharp edges if not assembled correctly.

Hello there ! Welcome to my blog. I am a freelance artist who has been creating art for a number of years now.
I have had the pleasure of creating art for a variety of clients, both small and large businesses, but have found that getting the right piece of art is not always as simple as walking into a store and buying something off the shelf. Thats why i decided to start this blog dedicated to my favorite medium, mixed media.
We tend to think that when we are buying art we are just buying canvas or frames, but there is so much more to it than that. We want to know where the artist got their ideas from, what materials they used and how they finished it off. We want to be involved in the creative process with them and understand why they wanted to create this piece and more importantly why we should buy it!
