Christmas Crafts

This isn't a typical devotional thought, but decided to share with you some of the posts from my family recipe blog, "Life's a Bowl of Cherries".  My mom and I have posted a lot of crafts over the past year and a half and many of them might give you an idea for something to do for Christmas gifts or for decorating.

Click on each craft below.  It will take you to the post telling how to make the item.

The best things about the Christmas crafts we've shown you is that they make great gifts for others.  Homemade gifts may take a little time to make, but that doesn't mean they are always difficult to make.  Besides giving to your family and friends, consider giving homemade gifts to those in the hospital or nursing home.  Maybe make something for a neighbor who is new to town.

The Christmas season is a great time to give to others.  The spirit of giving is all around.  Gifts can be purchased in stores and online, but a homemade gift has an extra special serving of love sent along with it because you created it for someone. I like this quote by Emily Matthews:  "From home to home, and heart to heart, from one place to another. The warmth and joy of Christmas, brings us closer to each other. "

More Christmas crafts will be posted on the recipe blog next week, so check back for more ideas to inspire your creativity!

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might....
Ecclesiates 9:10a

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
Luke 6:38
