I’m always emotional this time of year, more than any other time.  Maybe it’s because I miss being with my folks and extended family.  Maybe it’s the joy of seeing Christmas through my boys.  Maybe it’s the magnitude of what Christmas really means.  The fact that God loved us so much that He would send His son here to Earth as a baby.  That God would pick a young woman to be a mom to His son.  That she would watch him grow, knowing that one day she would lose him.  That her son would be the Savior of the world.  Love, real, unconditional, undeserved, supernatural, love. ♥

Yup, that’s why I get so emotional.

Wishing you the warmth of His LOVE this Christmas!

Christmas Stocking Swap

It seems like lately, I just don’t have time for my “creative” side.  That’s why I was so happy when my sweet friend, Sherry Bamsey, invited me to join her
Christmas Stocking Swap!

My partner was Denise Hahn. I love Denise!
She’s one of my cupcake girls!  I had a great time
putting a stocking together for her!
Here it is:
