How fast have the days gone by since Christmas?
I just logged on to do my WORD for 2017, and mercy, I found this post I did on the 28th, and never finished it, so, being one not to WASTE things, I am going to share this.
Our Team on Etsy, FAAP is having an after Christmas Sale. I have been blessed to sell 4 items and I am grinning from ear to ear! I thought I would share the 20 items that I still have listed at a discounted price.
Remember, that Holiday items make GREAT Wedding Gifts! One of the best wedding showers I ever attended, was a Holiday Shower. Most people get every day items, but when the holidays roll around, they have to go shopping, which, isn't a REAL problem, but just something to think about.
I sure do love that I get to create things with my hands. All those days that Mother did her best to keep our hands busy, I never had any idea the seed she was planting for the direction of my life.
I KNOW, she was doing her best to keep me and Brian from fighting, but what great skills she was also implanting in my world.
IF you have children, PLEASE teach them to love the arts, and the joy of doing work with their hands. Yes, game playing does teach them skills, but to CREATE something is a gift. Teach them BASIC skills they will need for life--to cook, to repair things, to grow things (yes, I guess mold on food in the fridge is a lesson, too), to organize their toys/books/possessions, to HELP with chores--not EVERYTHING we do deserves MONEY to get it done, because service is a vital part of living.
I am so thankful for the lessons my Parents taught me, even when I didn't know they were teaching me! WOW--what a blessed child I was.
