It's the Thought that Counts

Store bought gifts are good when you know the person wants something particular. But when gifting, always buy what the receiver would appreciate, not what you like. I know a lot of people buy something they like and then gift it to someone thinking, "If I liked it, I'm sure everyone else will too." Hence, the birth of re-gifting and returns.

Then there are people who are difficult to shop for. Adults can just as well buy most of what they want (and can afford) so they would appreciate something that can't be bought. It doesn't have to be something crafty; it could just be a memorable experiences. A good experience is a cherished gift. A surprise party at their favourite restaurant, a meal cooked from scratch, or just a day spent together on a picnic.

I for one am tired of things that deplete my closet space.

The Big Move

I like fact, if I don't have some change every once in a while, I start to get restless. So in that spirit, I opened a Tumblr account after having used Blogger for a year now. This is not so say I am giving up my Blogger page. I will be having my cake and keeping it too.
Of course the big question was how to transfer all my posts without spending the entire week on it. A quick Google search led me to a tool which transferred ALL my posts in 1 minute flat...WITH pictures! If we didn't have Google, I think it is safe to say, we would not have advanced much technologically or otherwise.
So here's to new beginnings!
