It's starting to look like Christmas take #4

Take #4

Hand crafted gifts have been part of Christmas since the beginning of time. I absolutely love sending out home made Christmas cards, gift cards, Money cards, tags, etc.

To me it says..."you matter to me"

Not everyone considers themselves crafty and that's OK because you have people like me who can help you out!

This year I decided to make a bunch of items for VON Community services to sell. All the proceeds will go directly back into our community via the programs they operate. Such programs like Meals on Wheels, Transportation for medical appointments and many more.

This is the first of several posts on the goods available at our local VON office for sale. The office is behind the Antigonish Mall, closer to the Canada Post office. Come in for a visit!



Wine Bottle Jackets! There is a To and From spot on the back!

Wooden Tags!


Acts like the gift tag when you give it then the following year it is a Christmas Ornament so the receiver can think of you each year thereafter.

Gift Card Holders!

These look like cards but when you open there is a neat place to hold a gift card so it pops ups when the receiver opens it.

We are Family

This summer I was so happy when it all came together and I was able to host the first ever Sampson/Jackson family gathering!

The weather was beautiful, food was delicious and time together...well that is priceless.

We all get very busy in our lives and rarely do we make unconditional time for each other as we take it for granted that it will always be there.

Got lots and lots of photo's so you'll be seeing more :)
