CHRISTMAS, it's the most exciting time of year! I just LOVE the smells of Christmas.....ummmm. There is nothing better than coming home to our live Christmas tree with its pine smell that fills our entire house. I like to bake at Christmas time so there's always yummy aromas of freshly baked breads, pumkin chocolate chip muffins, and oatmeal raisin cookies. I also love yankee candles like cherry cookie, warm vanilla, and apple spice. Just writing this post is making me hungry!
Christmas is a super busy time of year for most everyone I know. I've been trying to slow down a bit this Christmas. Last year I spent crocheting like mad so this year I have taken in less orders. I have made some gifts for family. I will posting what I made soon. They are very cute.
The best thing about Christmas is that I get to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. I try and remember that everything I do should honor Him and be for His glory...even if it's just crocheting baby hats or making Christmas gifts. Some how I hope that what I do will bring a little happiness or joy to a new mom or baby.....bringing a smile to their faces. What I do is not for the money or to boast of my skills or creativity....it's simply that I enjoy and appreciate the gift that God gave me and I love babies.
There is nothing like looking back at newborn photos of your own baby. It's the most precious photos you will ever have as a memory of when they were that little.
So, on that note....here are some of my Christmas items. My etsy shop is a little bare right now because I am trying to keep my workload under control for Christmas. If you don't see what you are looking for (but you know I've made it in the past) please email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I can definitely give you a turnaround time. Thanks!
