Thoughts from under the Christmas tree.

giftof givingThe Holidays are upon us, sales, sales, sales, bargains, bargains, bargains, are in every store!

We are surrounded by the temptation of buying beyond our needs.

AND taking 6 months (on average) to pay off the credit cards.

Consider; what you really pay with all that added payment interest.  Not such a bargain is it?

SO, lets get our priorities straight:  Remember you have a mortgage, car payment, utility bills, and the well being of your family.

AND Christmas is not about what we get!

Christmas for many lasts for a few minutes of ripping open presents, and throwing them aside to open the next one.

This year, take a break, spend time making cookies, drinking hot cocoa and watching Christmas story with your family, talking to neighbors, invite a family less fortunate to your celebrations.

Cuddles and hugs don’t cost, but their effect is priceless!

Make a Christmas Resolution that each year you will adopt a family; there are always people less fortunate then we are, and think about what they need to live a life of comfort.

When you do that you remember with tears that the very basic things in life are gifts much appreciated.

Christmas is a time for reflection and remembering that the true gift is of giving.

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness. This site opens up a new world for me to share and if I'm really privileged connect with with others.
