Christmas 2014

Well, I promised to share some of my favorite Christmas decorations and thought I’d see what I could do in a few minutes.

First I want to share something I read this morning that touched my heart…Christmas

This has been a year of scaling back the gifts/effort spent in the kitchen and increasing time and money spent on others – it’s been a good experience.   

Christmas - Gingerbread Bag
Amazing what can be created with a paper bag and cloth.

Cookie - Jesus
My daughter decorated the Jesus cookie – it’s my favorite.

My aunt does beautiful needlework and we all have a stocking she has created for each of us. Here are two.

Stocking - Tamara

Stocking - Evan

Christmas - Card Holder
This was given to me when I worked at an elementary school years ago. I made the pillow last year out of burlap.

This will be my last planned post of 2014 – taking time to be with family. I pray that your Christmas is filled with His presence and His Joy (Jesus Only You).

Sincerely, Debbie

  5. You’ve got the right idea. The theme for you bags caught my eye. Really like that. Gifts from the hand are the best.

    • Thank you – it’s amazing what can be made with the scrapes of fabric. I am happy you stopped by and hope you have a Happy New Year.
