Baskets and babies!

My girlfriend just had twin babies! A beautiful boy and girl. Which makes me think that people might need to be reminded that Mother's Day is coming and a wonderful gift should be given. Whether they are near or far they should be recognized. Creative Forces has amazing things for just that purpose. Order a very custom gift basket or maybe a wonderful piece of jewelry or handpainted wine glasses.

contact me, (email , phone 253.566.0818), Carolyn the artist or go to my website I would love to help you make your mom, sister, Grandma or friend happy and pleased that you remembered them.

This is my newest painting! 3'x3' gallery wrapped canvas. The outer edges are painted a dark grey/black. The photo does not do this justice. I'm really proud of it. Very "out of the box" for me. Not my typical style.

Now is the time to thank your clients for their business! I am a strong believer in saying thank you to people I do business with.........and let's not forget, family, friends and other business contacts. Contact Creative Forces for a wonderful custom gift basket for this precise purpose. Your recipient will be happy, you will be fondly remembered and down the road that can mean continued business. It doesn't have to be expensive. For around $20 you can begin the appreciation process. It's worth it. You will feel good and the person or office that you chose to recognize will be thrilled. Creative Forces uses alot of products from our area, so you are also helping local vendors continue their businesses as well. The gift baskets created by Creative Forces can be literally for any occasion. Just give me a call and we can design your gift. I also never fill my baskets with filler or sample size items.
You can see examples on my website:
Baskets can be shipped if they can't be personally delivered.
