Focus on Life - All Wrapped Up

I have been so wrapped up with the online courses I'm taking that I wasn't going to participate this week.  Then I remembered that excuses are one of my big pet peeves.  To put it more simply - I didn't know what to take a picture of.  Then I remembered something I received back in late December and keep on my desk for inspiration.  To me, it represents beauty in the details.  When we are in business, our packaging is so important and it tells a story about who we are.  This is a perfect example.  Erin's blog is called "Treasures Found - Inspiration is everywhere".  How true Miss Erin!
Beautiful, Simplicity, Detail - notice the tiny key on the right 
I received these beautiful goodies in the mail this past week from Kristi Bowman  Some beautiful handmade elements for my jewelry.  I won the package of beads shown from Kristi on her blog and they are quite beautiful!  I have never won anything before so lucky me!  I wanted to include this on my blog today.  Thank you so very much Kristi!  Your work is amazing!

I hope it is okay to brag about someone else's work and not always our own.  Kristi and Erin are beautiful designers and wonderful people as well.

Thank you for stopping and leaving such beautiful kind words each week.  I so appreciate it.  Now go see what the others have wrapped up over on Sally's Blog

Gorgeous photos! I've never been able to nail down my packaging as I try to figure out how to make the package both beautiful and secure. It never seems to come together for me, yet others seem to make it look so easy.

Such a nice surprise to find today! Thank you! I do love a pretty package. I would like to make my packaging even better and I am always seeking out new ways. This was a package from my December as I always add something extra there. Great packaging tells me that the sender cares just as much about what is on the outside as on the inside! I have been remiss to join in the challenges this past month due to too many commitments that are tying up my time. I hope to be back to it soon! Enjoy the day. Erin

I bought something from Erin once and loved the packaging! (necklace was gorgeous too) Winning things is always nice!

Oh, I do love nice packaging. In a way, it says something about how a person values what they've sent you. Kind of like the cherry on top. What I love most is that you've saved the packaging just because it was beautiful all by itself.

Those are both beautifully wrapped packages!

I think half the fun of receiving a handmade item is the way it's wrapped up. There is just as much creativity in the packaging as the item itself.
