Somehow, not only for Christmas
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others
Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart's possessing
Returns to you Glad...-John Greenleaf Whittier
These are a few more gifts I have been finishing up this week. My girls made the beaded snowflakes using a wire form by "The Beadsmith". It made the project more fun not having to come up with your own form. I would think Michaels or ACMoore would carry these.
The minibook is filled with fun "Friend and Girl" quotes for my friend and neighbor.
These wonderful "Gifts in a Jar" are only 3 of the several I am making. The bowl made up 6 jars of a 9 bean soup recipe. I put all the spices in a small sealed bag and is included in the jar. I put several recipes together with the help of "Taste of Home" Digest. I would include a link but blogger has thrown me into confusion with a new design being put in place (I assume that is what is going on). I'm not sure how to use my blogger anymore. That will have to wait until next year after the holidays.
I'm going to try to link up to the parties that are on my sidebar so check out eveyone's last minute gift giving ideas Merry Christmas!!
