Amanda and I did these cute ornaments from old hymn books that she got for free. It was kind of odd tearing the hymn book apart, but now we will have some of our old favorites on our tree. On of mine is "What a friend we have in Jesus", my grandma's favorite song. I can not ever sing this song without thinking of her. I think we will have to add a bit of "Martha Stewart's" glitter to really make these ornaments shine.
Today I am looking forward to a home day. A bit of cleaning and sorting and of course what I am really looking forward to doing is sewing. I tell my girls that they need to have some sort of creative outlet. Something they can do well, whether sewing, a craft, or baking. In times when money is short, if they have something they can make and give as gifts, not only does it make them feel better but it is a wonderful way to give a piece of your heart to others. Until next time~
