And since the days before Christmas are getting less and less, I am getting ready to wrap Christmas presents. Brand new rolls of tape and little boxes...
and my box of little gifts I buy all throughout the year. There is stuff from countries like Thailand, Turkey, the Czech Republic, the U.S. and Greece in this box. Beside it is the daily devotional I use every day, The Word Among Us. The meditations help me remember what Christmas is really all about. And if you're looking for a meaningful way to celebrate Advent, there is a wonderful Jesse Tree Advent Family Devotional from A Holy Experience.
In the back, a tin box from Nuremberg, Germany that used to be filled with gingerbread cookies. It is from my son who worked in Frankfurt for 9 months and is now back home! The 3 L'Imperatrice Eau de Toilette at the back is also from him and it also came in a really nice box (my daughter told him, you could have given her just the boxes! Ha, ha, so true!)
And here is a pair of earrings I bought from my last trip. For those of you who tried to guess where I was, I was in Thailand! No, I didn't buy these to wear but to take apart for embellishing something (do you do that?)
Have you joined my giveaway? I'm giving away one of these paintings.
And I will also have a giveaway for the My Memories digital scrapbook software as soon as I finish my post. I made this calendar using it. Oops, I just realized I put 2011 instead of 2012. Good thing I can easily change it.
I'm joining What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday. If you want to join, all you have to do is take a picture of your desk or just join in the fun of peeking at desks from around the world!
