One year late

I've always heard that gift giving etiquette for weddings allows for a whole year to find that perfect gift, or in my case perhaps it's craft the perfect gift? Well I'm here to admit that I completely failed with that timeline. I recently gave this letterpress print and wood type shadow box to friends just shy of their second anniversary. I found the wood type shortly after their engagement, printed the type just after their wedding, and then procrastinated on finding a frame. Doh!

The moral of the story is that it's never too late. I'm happy I finally shared this gift with my friends but really a wedding date is a great deadline for finding and making the perfect gift. I've learned my lesson and now I let go of the guilt. Yes, sometimes I feel guilty about my craft productivity.
