The Gift

One of my favorite songs is “The Gift” by Jim Brickman.

Isa sa aking paboritong kanta ang “The Gift” ni Jim Brickman.

For me, the most important gifts we can ever receive in our whole lifetime is LIFE and LOVE. LIFE because we exist and we enjoy God’s blessings as well as trials. LOVE because if we love God and the people around us everything will fall into place.

Para sa akin, ang dalawang pinaka-importanteng regalo na ating matatanggap habang tayo ay buhay pa ay ang BUHAY at PAGMAMAHAL. BUHAY dahil tayo ay naisilang at nag-eenjoy sa biyaya at pagsubok ng Diyos. PAGMAMAHAL dahil kung mahal natin ang Diyos at ang ating mga kapwa, maayos ang ating buhay.

Family. Isn’t it that they mean everything to us and we give them our love?

Pamilya. Hindi ba sila ang ating buhay at sila ay ating binibigyan ng pagmamahal?

Frugal Christmas: Handmade Paper Stocking Tree Ornament

For another Frugal Christmas post, I present “Handmade Paper Stocking Tree Ornament”.

Here is my post about Personalized Christmas Gift Tags.

My two younger children did these, two for each of them. When we were looking at these ornaments when we hung these, I thought the paper stockings look old-fashioned when put side by side to newer and more modern designs of tree ornaments these days.


  1. red construction paper
  2. white paper scraps, preferably Japanese paper
  3. craft glue
  4. Scrapbook embellishments

I just instructed the kids about what they should do and they did these quite well. Another post will be dedicated to the instructions and tips.

For now, we sit back on our (almost) modern furniture and enjoy the crafts hanging on the tree that they made.

Yes, there is going to be another post about another handmade paper ornament that they have done.
