Wrapped for a San Francisco "society wedding-of-the-year" event. Groom's parents gave the couple a $25,000 safari trip and the groom's hobby was gorillas. Serengeti was replete with music (The Wedding March) and small lights (fireflies).

A recognition award for a co-worker (who is an avid hiker and backpacker).
Precious Moments paper detail.The outlines of the figures were fused to typing paper twice, making a stiff backing for the detail to be added (built) on the top.Using cuticle scissors and tweezers, component parts (eyes, hair, garments, etc.) were cut out and added to the cardboard backing, the layers being separated by clear tub caulking. All edges were then treated with brown water color for softening. Music is "Silent Night."
In making a gift wrapping presentation for a Ballard group, they wished to present "something" to their janitor who was going on a Caribbean cruise.They told me what they wanted to give him, and I pre-pared the gift. The cellophane replicated water. Took my LWTC graduation pictures and mounted them on box sides. Bowl inverted inside of mortar board and then mortar board glued to package.

Fabric-wrapped gift for artist Rie Munoz. Found fabric in Redmond, WA. Boyd bear exactly matching fabric found several days later in Port Orchard, WA. An acquaintance at work approached me with "I want to give a parting gift to someone...but I don't want this person to ever forget me!" I took her personal snapshots and "Xeroxed" them to create the wrapping paper. The package was black and white. Message was written, minimized, and placed on the scroll held by the "acquaintance." Message below.

This is a very special gift
That you can never see
The reason it's so special is
It's just for you from me

Whenever you are lonely
Or even feeling blue
You only have to hold this gift
And know I think of you

You never can unwrap it
Please leave the ribbon tied
Just hold the box close to your heart...
It's filled with love inside
