Oh Koralee, your gifts are just beautiful, and the quote about "your gifts" is so very, very true; what good is any of it unless we give it away. Well done my friend, and your blog is as beautiful as always. Thank you for your kind comments on my blog post and yes, the celebration of our Savior's birth must be expressed with what is within us: OUR ART no matter what it may be! Blessings to you, ANita

Beautiful Koralee, how I missed this post is beyond me... I guess I skipped the decorations and went straight to your next post about cookies (I can sniff a good cookie from a long distance!).

Thank you for including my little gift in your beautiful tree! What an honor, girlie! (And the other ornaments are lovely too!)

You are so sweet & kind and I am so looking forward to getting to know you even better. (Let me know when you are heading to Seattle next time and I'll take you out for lunch or coffee (my treat!).

Cyber hug, Mon
