Because it's special.
We once carefully unwrapped a chocolate, hollow, Santa Clause, inserted the customers purchase of a 14k gold chain into the Santa, closed up the foil and gift wrapped the gentleman's gift for his wife. This was a very special gift, it needed special treatment. special handling. Years later I heard the story told from both the giver and the receiver of the gift. That bit of creative fun had created a lasting memory. That's what we do as artists craftsmen we create lasting memories, we create special things, the people that receive them are important. We need to remember that these things we make begin as ideas and then become handcrafted originals. They will become the inheritance of future generations, and they are treasure of those that receive them. I'll be typing about how we display these future treasures this week. Brad
