Oh What Do You Do?

I took the "Handmade Pledge" and so good. I'm busily making many of my Christmas gifts...or buying handmade gifts....yea! But....there is always a fear of creating something... and the receiver not be so thrilled. Most everyone receives with open arms...but, do they really like it? This is always the question. If and when the next time I visit ...will they run dig it out of the closet and place it in an obvious place of distinction? I would never want anyone to feel obliged to display one of my pieces...yet, giving of yourself is quite the true definition of giving...for me. All this ping-pong debate swirls in my brain. Hmmm. This is always my fear. Oh what do you do?

First let me say that anyone who would be fortunate enough to receive that lovely tree/collage would never have this problem - it is wonderful!
I can't really remember getting something that needed to be displayed that I didn't like, so it hasn't been a problem - but a top - that's a different story - it sits in my closet for years.
Have a great day!

First let me say that anyone fortunate enought to receive that wonderful tree/collage art piece would never have this particular problem you have questioned about. Love that piece!!!
I've been lucky enough that anything I've received that needed to be displayed has been something I truly like, so no problem. But getting clothing I don't care for and can't return - well, lets just say it hangs in the closet for a long time!
Have a great weekend!
