I always feel that a gift to someone doesn’t always need to be homemade or has to have a lot of time put into it. To me it’s a lot about the feeling behind it. I’m a big believer in charity and giving but also in receiving. To be able to give someone the fulfillment of those feelings, you have to be able to accept help. Most of the time we always think that we can handle everything that comes our way and that we’ve got it covered. We don’t and it’s ok to accept help and we have to learn that’s also part of charity, to receive.

OMGeeee, you have to find a way to get them. I used one of the new Christmas lines from My Minds Eye, Sleigh Bells Ring.

I started with the fun  kind of tweed patterned paper and cut it to 5X7″ then I added this little calendar piece. I found this prancing reindeer and put some pop-dots behind it. Then with the 5, I adhered it with flat tape and used pop-dots for the 2.

These wooden circles are my favorite. They just add something incredibly fun.

Create an easy and inexpensive neighbor gift using #mymindseye #sleighbells and an #ikea frame on frenchiewraps.comI waited until I framed the piece to add my bow. I just placed the piece of glass behind the picture so that when the holidays are over, the frame can be re-used. Layering can be a little tricky but just try laying things out before glueing. It took me a while and I still don’t have it all down but it comes at trial and error. Thanks for stopping by and it you’re a first time visitor, make sure you’re following me on social media so that you can keep up to date with all my projects!
