Holiday Gift Guide: Sharifa Creates Art

playtime sm (1)

With Christmas being less than a month away, now is the best time to purchase gifts for friends and family. Typical presents include pajamas, savvy electronics, and gift cards. But, have you ever considered giving artwork as a gift? 

I have an art business named Sharifa Creates Art. I started it three years ago to sell my original abstract paintings. Over time I’ve come to realize that visual art is more than just something pretty to look at, it can have a positive or negative spiritual impact. I create my paintings with the intention of sharing joy, encouragement, and the good news of Jesus Christ! All of my paintings are created in a worship environment. Before they leave my hands, they are prayed over and anointed for the purpose they will have in your life. 

This year buy a Christmas present from Sharifa Creates Art! Gift a canvas painting to the art collector in your life or use an art magnet to stuff a stocking. Your loved one will have a one-of-a-kind painting that no one else owns. Artwork from Sharifa Creates Art is the perfect fit for any space – from office cubicles to gallery art walls.

The DIY Holiday Gift Guide

I’m a strong advocate for DIY-ing Christmas presents. This marks my fourth year in a row making gifts instead of buying them. I started DIY-ing gifts because I was tired of heading into congested malls only to not find anything worth giving to friends and family. I couldn’t even bear the wait for items I ordered online to be shipped to me.

I had to take the initiative! Now I find unique YouTube and Pinterest tutorials for my favorite DIY projects, purchase a few items from the craft store, and create. It’s a peaceful process!

Nothing beats handmade gifts. They are from the heart. This is why I put together a DIY gift guide just for you. Make your presents this holiday season!

Admit it already; Christmas shopping is no longer your thing! It’s tiresome trying to find the perfect gift among crowds of people at the mall. They push and shove and do everything but put you in the holiday spirit. Then, once you find a gift, you stand in line for eternity to purchase it. Ugh! Don’t even get me started on the holiday traffic.

You only need to take one trip to the craft store to buy supplies. Then you can stay in the comfort of your home. Put on a holiday themed onesie, fix a cup of your favorite spiced drink, and start crafting with this DIY Christmas Gift Guide! Continue reading “Craftsmas Day 4: A DIY Christmas Gift Guide”
