LINK TO CHRISTMAS GIFT TAG FREEBIE HERE Here’s a little freebie treat for you that is made out of my “Contemporary Christmas 2” kits, both the paper pack and Digital Clip Art kit coordinate with it. It’s a three dimensional, layered gift tag that you can make quite easily and glitz up with glitter, jewels or? I personally adore decorating my packages with really special gift tags so I hope you’ll enjoy this little gift.
I think that this Christmas is going to be both a challenge and a blessing. We all have a little less “excess” to go overboard with Christmas gifts so if you are crafty at all, it’s an opportunity to use your gifts and talents to make up the difference! My very favorite Christmas memories are the ones where I spent time making my gifts for my family members rather than last minute rushing through the stores and grabbing what I could find and afford.
The real meaning of Christmas isn’t the glitz, glamour and race to outspend each other — it’s that God gave His most precious gift, His only begotten Son to a world that was lost without Him. It’s that God wanted to enlarge His family through that gift and that His passionate desire is that we would have His Peace fill our lives and our world.
So as we head into the fall (yippee on the brisk cool mornings, I LOVE THEM!) Let’s think of really meaningful gifts we can give to those we love. If you have grandchildren, perhaps you could take them for a weekend to allow their parents time to rediscover their love for one another. If you have a neighbor that is growing old and frail, perhaps you could take them with you to see the Christmas lights. There are so many meaningful things that we can do for each other that cost very little if anything — except of course our TIME, which is the most valuable and limited thing we own.
