lemonademakinmama For 20+ years, I dreamed of recieving an itty teal box with a white bow...this morning I saw one & burst into tears. I couldn't even open it...i just sat and cried and looked & looked at it....& treasured it while I blubbered. Then his words..."This gift is to encourage you as you raise up our little arrows..." I am tearing up even now. He didn't want me to share but you know me. {Open book city.} Never...never...never has a gift touched me more deeply. & I love that as good of a giver as my man is, we all have a Heavenly Father who gave us everything. His own son. Merry Christmas friends. 3d

lemonademakinmama Several of you asked what I was crafting the other day- gift-giving pineapples! {Ferrero Rocher candies wrapped/hot glued in tissue squares and then hot glued to a sparkling cider bottle. The leaves were tissue, hot glued on and wrapped in twine.} Fun for a whole family to enjoy at Christmas & fun to give. Super simple, yet time consuming to make. One pineapple took a Costco sized box of candies. {Found the entire tutorial on Pinterest by searching "ferrero roche champagne pineapple"} I found the wood tags, tissue & twine at Michaels. 5d
