Well, today is "Black Friday"...the busiest shopping day of the year.
I used to do the Black Friday thing, but I no longer enjoy fighting the crowded stores and the crazy drivers in the streets just to get a good bargain.
Giving the perfect gift is just so much MORE than that to me.
I have gotten more into
"Gifts from the Heart" rather than the stores.
If I had it my way, I would completely De-commercialize Christmas and demand handmade gifts.
Unfortunately, I can not do that world wide, but I have been successful the last few years in doing it with my own family. Rather than buying a gift, I have my kids pick
a person that they want to make a gift for.
When they have chosen the person and decided what they want to make, then we go buy the materials that we need in order to MAKE it. The only guidelines that I give them in helping them decide who and what...is I tell them that it should be a Gift from their own heart.
This year, Skye decided that she wanted to give some clips to her little cousin for Christmas since she always admires the ones that Skye wears.
She picked the ribbon out of my stash from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store.
(She did have a little bit of help from me picking MATCHING colors...LOL)
Here is the Flower Clippie Bouquet that I made for my niece...(with a little help from Skye)
They are mounted on dowel rods covered with floral tape and are easily removable for wear!
Skye wanted to model one for all of you today!
This little bouquet will be wrapped up and given to my niece for Christmas.
Hopefully, she will love it as much as Skye does.
I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful and blessed!
I would love to hear your ideas about giving Gifts from the Heart!
