God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Christmas Exchanges & Gifts from Me to Others - 2014

The weeks leading up to Christmas were beyond overwhelming for me this year due to health & other issues, so much so that when getting exchanges & gifts ready to mail I totally forgot ... with the exception of one package ... to take photos of any extras I might have sent in addition to stitched items!  Here are the photos I did take of the ornaments I sent (& some of these photos had to be borrowed because I forgot to take them as well!) ... all stitched for exchanges & gifts, all stitched in 2014.  If one exists, I will provide a link to recipients' blog posts so you can see additional items sent.
