John 3:16 – 17 NIV
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

Merry Christmas to you!

Jesse Tree Ornament–Day 1

Pin It

From the book:

the-advent-jesse-tree-devotions-for-children-and-adults-to-prepare-for-the-coming-of-the-christ-child-at-christmas_thumb[1]

Our plan was to use Fimo clay to create an ornament for each day of Advent.  The ornaments were designed to fit in the watchmaker tins.  The tins have magnets on the back and a sticker with the day of advent on the lid.  The tin is put on the kitchen fridge.  Someday I might alter a cookie sheet for all the tins.

Gift Planning Notebook

Pin It

IMG_1237

I always try to mentally note gift ideas for people when I’m shopping or if they happen to say something in conversation.  I never remember until after the gift-giving occasion. 

Here’s a little note book which lists the Gift Recipient, the due date (birthday, christmas, anniversary, etc), estimated budget, ideas, and the final decision.  I always worry that I’ll give a repeat gift.

I’ve become a big fan of embossing folders recently. It’s a big statement, pretty easy to achieve.
