It’s funny how kids really make you appreciate the simple but most meaningful things. At this time of year, people run around in a frenzy to get their shopping done. Stores get crowded, people get pissy, and tempers flare.
Meanwhile, kids are busy making their own Christmas cards and wrapping their own gifts. I know, because I received many last week.
In addition to these beautiful cards, I also received homemade cookies, bath bombs, and earrings (made by the kids themselves). Mind you, I still very much enjoyed biting into Purdy’s Sweet Georgia Brown chocolates (and others).
Earlier in the year, I thought of how nice it would be to give nothing but handmade gifts for Christmas. Of course, time flew right by, and before I knew it, my pre-Christmas me-days were numbered. However, I did find the time to go to a couple of craft fairs and picked up a few little things. Of course I can’t say just yet what they are. So, not all my gifts are handmade, but I’m making progress, I’m proud to say.
