.The Crafts of Christmas Past.

Christmas is in the air.
Neighbors are decorating their homes sharing Christmas cheer.
Radio stations are playing Nat King Cole.
Holiday drinks are being served at coffee shops.
Red bows are gracing wreaths everywhere.
Memories are being made by all ages.
Cookies are baking in the ovens of many households.
People are rejoicing in the birth of our 
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Here's to wishing the air you breath will fill your heart with warmth and peace this Christmas season. This post is simply to share the Christmas crafts I completed last year in hopes it may bring inspiration and joy to you. Enjoy and happy Christmas Crafting!
