Well Christmas draws ever closer and as we run about doing our last minute gift buying or like me a day of baking let us pause and remember what Christmas is all about. Christmas is that special time of year when we reflect on how rich our lives truly are because of the special people in them, a time that you should stop take a breath and marvel in the beauty of the season and for no reason help those who are less fortunate than yourself. Hold your loved ones close, partake in a tradition that perhaps might have gotten lost along the way and celebrate the true meaning of the season. I wish all of you a very happy holiday season.
I thought I would share some of my holiday cards with you as my final entry before Christmas...remember a hand made card is a present all in itself because you took the time to create it for someone.
