Homemade Christmas gifts: EASY earrings & necklaces!

Sometimes it’s the little things.

That are simple, yet meaningful.

Beautiful but not fancy or expensive.

Joyful times and wonderful memories for me have always surrounded the quiet simple moments, and fun memories of doing something together as a family.

With each year that passes I find myself going back to what was most meaningful to me, and two things continually come to mind.

Time, and kindness.

To give the gift of time spent with someone you love, and being kind, showing kindness, and doing so in a thoughtful way.

More than an extravagant gift, or something to “top” what we did last year.

The greatest and most extravagant, undeserved Gift was given in a very humble way.

In humble surroundings that didn’t seem fit for a baby, let alone a King.

No sounding of trumpets or credit cards at their limits.

But a gift of pure love, because we are loved so very much.

Maybe part of what we are to take away from that most meaningful Gift arriving was how we are to live and give.

With humility and kindness.

Sacrificially, giving because we love, not because someone has done something to deserve it.

That is one of the reasons that I love to give handmade gifts. [Read more…]
