Giving and Receiving
We baked up a storm and made candies galore! We gave baskets of food and much much more! Our lives are abundant and the blessings are full. I was so happy to share with others this Christmas.
I know that receiving is fun, but I find giving so much more! The children and I had so much fun together creating love with food and crafts.
We listened to Christmas music and danced and sang.
It was fun putting our love in gift form.
Thank God for giving us the the gift of His Son, and the joy of giving!
With giving also comes receiving!
That is a blessing as well.
Speaking of giving and recieving, that reminds me of Swaps! Swaps are such a fun part of the blogging community. We make new friends and share ourselves in really fun swaps.
Debby at Cozy Blanket had such a fun swap called Cup Of Kindness. I hope you are following her blog already, but if not, she is a sweet woman with lots to share. She is a great crafter and she is a grandma and she is one of the nicest people ever!
My partner was Erica from Golden Egg Vintage and she also has a blog that you will want to follow if you are not already. Erica is one of the best vintage crafters and collectors and she specializes in Christmas theme!! I sent her my present and she sent me mine! Just look at her wonderful Cup of Kindness for me.
All so very Christmas Vintage!
Details! Make the cup even more fun!
I thought this was a lot to fit in one cup!!
Erica, you must possess some Elf Magic!!
Vintage pipe cleaner Santa and cute Snowman, and decorated wreath! A vintage hand stitched Chicken /Scratch embroidered gingham apron!! Oh, Erica, you pay attention to what I like. You are such a sweetheart.
See the pretty corsage that she made!
Everyone loved this when I wore it for Christmas.
Thanks again Debby for being so kind in hostessing this
Cup of Kindness Swap 2012.
Thank you Erica for being a wonderful Swap partner!
Thank you to all my readers. So many have become friends and I am so happy and grateful for that!
It was a good year and I am looking forward to seeing what blessings are waiting in 2013.
Live. Laugh. Love.
God bless you,
