Music Monday! Handmade Christmas!

Today there is enough snow on the ground to call it covered, tho only about 1/4 inch. The kids got their first snow day however, because of the bitter cold and black ice "they" said. They were so amused to see barely any snow on the ground and have no school because of the weather. They remember our time in Western New York, when it took 2 feet of snow in 2 hours to cancel school. This is nothing compared to those snow days!

So all this (little bit of) snow makes it feel a bit more like Christmastime to us.  We went downstairs to get out some decorations, and as in years past, I found some of the ornaments the kids have made to give our tree special meaning. This one is one of my favorites, a snowman in the mind of a 1st grader. (He is 12 now!) There is something about the artwork of a child that is so special, and I love that it adorns our tree every year.

Every handmade gift or decoration brings a special meaning to the season, and this week I will be showcasing Handmade goodies that can adorn your tree, your house, or make great gifts for those special people on your list. And this week is the last week to get it shipped without paying extra shipping costs, so make your decisions and shop!

Because today is Music Monday, this song, about Handmade, is perfect to kick off this week of Handmade treasures. Thanks to David Leach, a creative musician and fellow creator, for this great song. So true handmade gifts are so much better....
