Make Room For Love

I was cracking my brain thinking about what Christmas gift I can give my friends this Christmas. Since currently I'm unemployed I'm implementing a tight money policy so lavish gifts are definitely out of question.

Suddenly it hit me that I should give them my artworks. Nicely framed and cutely wrapped, it could be my special gifts for them.
But which artworks should I give them? None of the current one that I have seems fit.

In the end I decided that I want to create something new for them.
I started to ask myself what do I wish for them? And I the answer is love
Most of them are singles and I really wish that love will find them real soon.
So here is what i make for them

Watercolor hand lettering for the thing that I wish for them

Matching gift tag :)

Hopefully they like the gift, and my wish for them can come true.
