Giving from the Heart...

--So often, Christmas gets commercialized and turned into a race for 
the "best deal" on Black Friday. 

--So often, we forget why we celebrate, or even WHO we are celebrating.

--So often, we get lost in the hustle and bustle of the holidays that we forget to 
stop and focus on the little things.

NOT THIS YEAR.
This year, I am making it a point to stay focused on the little things.

One thing that I am focusing on is MAKING Christmas gifts rather than buying the pre-fabed store bought junk. 
This year, I am going to be Giving Gifts from the Heart.

My 5 munchkins and I  will be hand making our gifts this year.
I will try to feature each one as it is completed...Notice I said TRY! LOL
We are going to start with this:

Flower Clippie Bouquet

This will be a fun gift for any little girl who likes to wear hair jewelry.
This one is going to be going to my 5 year old niece.

Supplies:
ribbon&jute by Really Reasonable Ribbon
paper by Imaginisce

These are super cute. Homemade gifts are much better than anything bought in the store as they come from the heart. :) I have made gifts in the past from scrapbook albums, to baked goods, soaps, Christmas ornaments. When I was learning to sew in jr. high I made my mother a sweatshirt. I hope you had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving!!!

We are doing the same - either give vouchers for things people need or make them ourselves. With my DD, I have already made the cutest little boxes for everybody's desk.
