gift on hand & wallpaper

A couple years ago I went to a local handmade market with my mom. At that point I had been blogging for about 5 years and was somewhat familiar with artists and small business owners in the area (that were active on social media). One artist I had been following was Stacie of Gingiber. Her playful and artistic creations were so different than most on the market. The only thing I really remember about that craft fair was seeing my friend Natalie and getting to meet Stacie.

I’ve been working to stockpile a few quick gifts to use for random occasions and teacher gifts (my kids are in a homeschool co-op like thing and each have a teacher). Gingiber has a cute line of paper goods and I am a sucker for journals – any and all kinds.

  1. I combined the Market List with a ceramic egg holder. I’ll use this for a hostess gift when we go to a friend’s to eat….however, with 5 kids it is more common for us to invite friends over!
  2. The notebooks come in a set of 2, but you could take them apart. I think they make super cute gift just with some fabric wrapped around them, but you could also include a fun pencil or a gift card.
