For my family, Christmas isn’t about the presents (and yes, we know the true meaning of Christmas), but about the traditions and the treasures and how they enhance our enjoyment of the season; about the tangible need to bless others and the good will that tempers both our longterm relationships and briefest interactions.
I love the chill in the air and the spicy smell of scented candles; the cocoa and the carols; unpacking ornaments that have hung on our tree for years and adding meaningful new ones; decorating for the season and getting my craft on as I scour Pinterest for fresh ideas (I’m determined to try this one).
The kids have handled the trimming our tree for the past few years, but I’m excited that we’ve added a second tree this year that I decorated from scratch. It’s simple: burlap garland; silver and gold balls in both matte and glitter from IKEA; a few quirky red mushrooms that proved irresistible; and my friend Lisa Leonard’s ornaments for each of my children.
Lisa Leonard Designs’ new ornament collection features hand-stamped pieces like the My Holly custom Christmas ornament, customized with a name on front and the year on back. The kids were excited when the package first arrived—these ornaments make them feel special!—but I loved seeing their faces today, after I’d decorated the tree, as they searched for their letter and name.
These ornaments make wonderful Christmas gifts or keepsakes for your family to enjoy year after year.
