Christmas is coming!! My little love is so excited for Christmas she is anticipating the time with her cousins and of course the presents. Being low on funds this year I (as previously mentioned) decide to make her gifts. I have been stressing the importance of remembering why we celebrate Christmas and trying to explain the significance of Jesus’ birth to her. Our home doesn’t celebrate Santa for our own reasons but I don’t think that it at all has diminished her love of the holiday. My daughter is a lover she loves her family as she puts it ALL THE WAY TO GOD…the first person that she ever said that wonderfully cute phrase to was not her Momma but her Grandma Hon. She LOVES her family I think partially her love is so strong because she is an only child and craves that companionship and friendship that a sibling provides.
I was pondering Christmas presents with no budget and during a talk with my mom about possibilities, together we came up with the idea to create a love wall of all her loves. So I set to make the vision a reality and my Mom helped me with supplies and last night or well really this morning I began painting shadow box picture frames and thinking of how to decorate them. I love to paint although I do not have an artistic bone in my body I set to work…I put a lot of love effort into them. It took me 5 hours 2 hot glue gun burns and paint all over my hands, arms, clothes, and table. The result was 1 plaque, and 4 photo frames that will house all my babies loves.
I made a slide show of the end result below…they are perfectly flawed but I am proud of my effort.
Lots of love,
