God Loves a Cheerful Giver/soap crafting
This year my husband and I decided that we were not going to spend any money on CHRISTMAS, how were we to get this done? Every gift, every card, sweet treat and decoration has been handmade by myself and our children. It has been so much fun working with the girls seeing them get excited about what they have made and talking about how much the recipient is going to enjoy their gift.
**One note we did end up purchasing some Christmas candy, I burnt up my mixer making fudge and was not able to complete what items were left on my list.**

It is funny how my Nice and Nephews ask there parents when the next time is that I will be coming over. Know what they are looking forward to? Handmade soap, they have run out and are in their own way requesting more. It is so funny! These kids have every toy, get almost everything they ask for and in the end what they want from Aunt Sara is more Soap for bath time. (I love it!) That is truly what makes giving this time of year such a joy.
