"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

3 Gifts at Christmas: Reusable Gift Tags, A family tradition

I first introduced you to our family's Christmas Tradition a few years ago.
It's a tradition that I look forward to all year.  Christmas in our house is more special because of it.
Simply, we each receive just 3 gifts at Christmas time. The stocking is not included in the 3 gifts.

The gift of Wonder: something from Santa
The Gift of Usefulness: clothes, tools, anything we need or use
The Gift of Meaning: usually something homemade or a gift of extra meaning for the person
 To go along with this very special tradition I made these gift tags a few years ago for each member of my family.  We use them every year on our gifts.  They are very special to me.  If you want to know how I made them, see this post from a few years ago.
You can also read more about our tradition by going HERE.
May the true meaning of Christmas fill your home as you simplify things this year.

Make sure to follow my blog for I have started to reveal the gifts of my 
Homemade Christmas edition for 2012.

These are beautiful....great ways to remember what is truly important this holiday season. I'm having a homemade holiday link party with prizes and I thinks this would be a great project to link up. I'd love for you to stop by. Linking ends 12/3/12 at 11:59 pm Eastern time.

I just wanted to tell you that I love your 3 gift tradition and the categories you selected! I found the idea last year, so this will be the second year we're doing it in our family. Thanks so much for sharing it! I'll be sharing it on my blog (and linking to you) sometime soon as part of our Christmas traditions!
