A poem for the first day of Christmas was my natural path. As one who has often thought in rhyme, poetry has given me many opportunities to share my love with others. And just as peotry can speak from the heart, so can stories bring messages of love.
Be sure to give your computer the full benefit of letting you create something nice. For the cost of a little bit of time, some ink and a few sheets of paper, you can write a story for a child in your life that will bring many hours of delight. By learning to make tables or graphs on your computer, you can divide normal-size sheets of paper into large or small sections and type either a very long story or a very short one for that special child or children in your life. Color, cut, paste or sew the sections together or, go with the color provided by your printer and you have the makings of a personalized gift. Add some stickers and you're all set to be a child's hero. And did I mention that cardstock makes a great book cover, along with colored pages for the inserts?
You want to show how much you love.
With that in mind, you will agree,
A story on day two, must be.
Join me tomorrow for another labor of love with limited funds. We still have a couple of weeks before that jolly old elf appears. That should give us plenty of time to make gifts for everyone on the list, right?
