“Wishing your a circle of love and light this holiday season!”
Do you know what I love about Christmastime? There’s not just a holiday spirit in the air; there’s also a creative one, infectious and inspiring if you’re willing to open up and embrace it. People all over are decorating sugar cookies, trees, mantle pieces, doorways, you name it. You don’t have to “be crafty” to have a little fun with the holidays! I love that. There’s no fear of failure, no self-consciousness; just this courageous, imaginative energy everywhere you turn. Just look at these gorgeous plates of food art we have here! I know what some of you are thinking: “Oh, but I’m not creative; I could never do that!” – I get it. I feel the same way sometimes, but that’s the beauty of the holidays. It doesn’t matter! First of all, there are so many projects that are more about the fun of the experience than any end result, and those are great places to start. Just enjoy it! Second of all, there are also a lot of totally doable, crafty ideas; and with resources like blogging tutorials and Pinterest, they’re all right at your fingertips. Here are some easy-peasy ideas anyone can handle:
3-Ingredient Peppermint Sugar ScrubHomemade spice mixes (these would be great as a collection of small mason jars)
Vegetarian five bean soup mix
Mason jar manicure set
Whole grain pancake mix
Free Christmas printables for personalizing any gift
Today we celebrate FEED, founded by Lauren Bush Lauren with the simple idea of creating products that would engage people in the fight against hunger in a tangible way. On her travels around the world as a World Food Programme (WFP) Honorary Spokesperson, Lauren witnessed the effects of hunger firsthand. In places like Cambodia, Chad and Guatemala, she saw a program making a dent in child hunger malnutrition: school meals. When a child is given a free, nutritious school lunch, it can break the cycle of poverty she was born into and empower her to change her own life. Every products has a number stamped on it that signifies the amount of meals or micronutrient packets provided with its purchase. FEED is a movement connecting customers to the cause, one bag at a time.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS! LOVE, FRESHKIDS
