I am thankful for the life I’ve experienced on this earth. I am grateful to have been born in a country were I am free; free to believe how I believe. I understand how fortunate I am.
I am thankful for the people who are constant in my life and for those who have come in and out over the years. I am grateful for the life lessons they taught me. Without them, I would not be who I am today.
I am thankful for the tender mercies the Lord has provided me. I am grateful He chose me to follow Him. Without him, I would not have been created.
While I carry this with me year round, I believe this is a season for emphasis on faith, family and friends. A thank you to each of you for being in my life. May you have a blessed holiday season.
Many thanks and much ♥ Meg
Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
Also featured in this treasury, is la Naváa's Festive Maple Leaf Note Card Set! The red/orange colored maple leaves were hand-stenciled and layered atop 100% recycled construction paper, and textured card stock. This set of six is on sale now!
Between now and December 20th, 10 great handmade gifts for Christmas ’10 will be featured in my la Naváa blog.
The items will be found online, anywhere, but will always be handmade. I’m a big advocate of handmade items. Buying handmade doesn’t just support your local communities, but it supports individuals pursuing an interest, and a talent. Kudos to them for being so brave as to venture.
This may pose to be a daunting task with the holiday hussle and bustle quickly approaching, so I’m recruiting your help. When you come across a great handmade item you’d like to share with others, please let me know. Leave a comment here on my blog, email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org, send me a convo on Etsy, or a post on Facebook. Either way, leave the url link to the item online and why you think it should make the ’10 Holiday Gift Giving List.
Artisans and crafters: this is a chance for you to promote your creations! Please do partake!
I’m looking forward to the finds of the season and hearing from each of you; suggestions and comments alike!
Michelle of SweetSamantha took sometime earlier this week to show just how ready she is for Thanksgiving. She put together a colletion of festive Turkey Day inspired handmade creations ranging from holiday decor such as AnnaHailey'sSeasonal Weath to adornable art like the adorable Turkey Hair Bow made of ribbon by KenziesCloset. I'm wishing that super cute baby came with that bow! ;)
With this celebratory Thanksgiving Treasury on Etsy, Michelle exclaims:
A dear friend of mine requested a custom necklace to match her newly purchased la Naváa earrings. Her earrings were made with Rainbow Tourmaline Gemstone chips suspended on Sterling Silver wire. The necklace would embody both components.
5mm and 4mm Tourmaline gems individually wrapped in Sterling Silver and linked together. Figaro chain seperates the three gem links.
She loved it! And I ♥ that!
Presented in her very own gift box... made just for her.
'Tis the season for giving... with love! Present your Christmas gift in a la Naváa handmade holiday gift box!
Whether you fill the box with cookies, candies or other treats your thoughtfulness will show.
La Naváa's line of Note Card Boxes are exactly what they state. Adorning the box top is a paper note card with a festive design or saying; perfect for leaving your note for the recipient. At the moment, my Ho! Ho! Ho! 5 piece set is available in my Etsy shop.
