Here are some of the gift tags I made this afternoon. The bear was on a baby shower invitation and I glued him right on to the tissue paper. I love the bright and cheerful colors of Christmas reds and greens, don't you? There is always something to lift our spirits in the small details of day to day living. Perhaps a phone call from a friend, or a cup of your favorite tea. Maybe just knowing you did a good job around the house today or in the laundry room. Yes, life has lots of blessings tucked among the hours of every day and evening, its up to us to recognize them and enjoy!  Posted by Picasa

i save old Christmas cards and make postcards out of them, or gift stickers or they can be sewn together for a little box ... i love this type of recycling!

also i loved yesterdays post and the beautiful little server you found ... you are a creative lady!

Those are so cute! I haven't made any tags, but I do make cards and even did some this past weekend, which I hope to get pics posted of them on my blog soon. Not tonight though as I have to get back to working on my Hebrew translation homework.

Oh they are lovely Maggie Ann, especially the first two! I love Ilex for christmas! Yes you are right, red and green are beautiful x-mas colors. I've ordered some blank tags, but they are much smaller than I thought they would be *duh me* :/

What fun those are Miss Maggie..I love the idea. It looks like they are quite easy and quick to make?? Like you could lay out a basic shape and then just play with what goodies are in the box or basket...*VBS*

I really like the idea..thank you.
