My name is Elena. I’m the founder of Elena’s Gifts, a place to find something uncommon and adorable, which will be made  Just For You.

I am retired child psychologist and use my professional skills and life experiences for designing my gifts, based on personal analytic of qualities and preference of gift receivers.

Everything I do, I believe, should bring special feelings of LOVE, CARING, for that special person in your life. I really believe, it can positively change our hearts, minds and habits!

Why handmade gifts? Why they are better…

Why choose handmade gifts

Each time, as the holidays or someone’s birthday approaches, we begin “to brake our heads” over the gifts we are going to give. We can, of course, solve the problem in more simple ways: give money so that a person can chose a gift for themselves, or ask directly about the desired gift.

Most people want to surprise those who occupy a very special place in their lives. That is why these people would like to find something special and unique, investing their time and money in such kind of a gifts.

Lifes wisdom from God for those who wants to understand life ‘s rules…

 

“To know the will of God is the highest of all wisdom. Living in the center of God’s will rules out all falseness of religion and puts the stamp of true sincerity upon our service to God. You can be miserable with much, if you are out of His will; but you can have peace in your heart with little, if you are in the will of God. You can be wretched with wealth and fame, out of His will; but you can have joy in obscurity, if you are in the will of God. You can have agony in good health, out of His will; but you can be happy in the midst of suffering, if you are in God’s will. You can be miserable and defeated in the midst of acclaim, if you are out of His will; but you can be calm and at peace in the midst of persecution, as long as you are in the will of God”.

How to find the right gift for very special one?

The reason for writing this article is based on a real story.
After my wedding, I moved into my husband’s house and began to organize it.. The last room was the attic. It was filled with very many small and large boxes.

As I started to open some of boxes, I noted the contents looked like gifts. Some of them had receipts, and some had greeting cards. Many were around 20 years old. Most of these gifts were new. I asked my husband about them and he said that all of the gifts were given to him and his late wife by relatives, friends, co-workers, but they could never find the right spot for them. Seeing this, got me to thinking… Continue reading…

Learn how shop correctly.

Learn how shop correctly!

People buy nature are emotional creatures!

Thus, sometimes when they are shopping, their emotions play a large part in their selection. Now when they are shopping, one of the most common problems is, people do not know how to spend money. After some time they are able to rejoice at the sight of their purchases, and not think about the money spent on it, this is their second mistake. It is repeated every day and it seems they can’t do anything about it.

Encaustic – a unique technique of drawing with wax.

Encaustic – a unique technique of drawing with wax.

Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments  are added. The liquid or paste is then applied to a surface—usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used. The simplest encaustic mixture can be made from adding pigments to beeswax, but there are several other recipes that can be used—some containing other types of waxes, dakar resin, linseed old or other ingredients. Pure, powdered pigments can be used, though some mixtures use oil paints or other forms of pigment. Continue reading…

Pride is a mortal sin, and how I was able to overcome it.

Pride is as a mortal sin, and  how I was able to overcome it.

The story that happened to me six years ago, it is a continuation of my first story, which turned my concept of the world, upside down. This gave me one more confirmation that a higher power does exist, and it leads us through out our entire life. I have no intention to question someone in their faith – this should come to their heart and not necessarily immediately. My story is about, how I had to break my pride, which prevented me to live and enjoy life.

I thank God every day of my life and for every situation, he brings me, independently of the degree of its influence on my ego. Living in forgiveness makes even the biggest disappointment or frustration, as the next step to success. This has allowed me to stop worrying and start living in peace with myself. Continue reading…

My true story. With God in my soul and his incredible help.

I am sharing my true story because of a situation that happened to me and is associated with my faith in God Almighty…

It so happened that the concept of “Chernobyl victims”, I had to learn through my own experience. I am Ukrainian. My family was gone in 3 terrible years after the fatal explosion. My 42 years old husband, my dear mother-in-law, and my beloved mother all passed away. My father then dies three  years after them, and then I was diagnosed with breast cancer. God forbid for someone else to find out what it is like at 35, with 2 young children and just 9 months after your husband’s funeral.
