(I use my beaded spoon to stir my sweet tea. For Christmas, I’m giving my Mom and Mother-in-law the Life pitcher and this platter. 

I LOVE this line from Dayspring so much! It makes me happy to use it and to give it. And, it’s on sale right now. The Life Collection is 15% off, just in time for holiday shopping!)
Here are some gift ideas I love (for kids):
Kid’s Meals -such a creative idea
Handmade Ornaments-I love these!
P.S. Come back later today for the PERFECT gift idea from your kids-for that hard to buy for person (Yes, Mom, I’m talking about you-but don’t come back and see what you might be getting for Christmas!) Oh, and I’m giving TWO of them away!

    With office potlucks and church functions coming up, I went to Dollar Tree and got some of the $1 serving pieces to make these! What a great idea, and so quick and easy to do….

    Thanks so much!

    I love these so much you would not believe it!!!

    I love it when I can use crafts I love in a different way to make gifts.

    I make jewelery, and have lots of great beads which will be perfect for this.

    If I make any, I promise to share them and link to you.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    About that pitcher – This may be a long shot – but my grandma, who is very special to me, gave me that pitcher a few years ago and I just broke mine last night. I can’t find it for sale anywhere, but if there is someone on here who ordered one and has one and would be willing to sell it to me, I would be so very grateful! Please help if you are willing! God bless!
