Oh my gosh, Happy Christmas Week! I love Sundays, and this is the beginning of Jesus' birthday week which makes it even more exciting!  Something I've been thinking about lately is how important it is to remember how big of a blessing it is to live in a home.  Shelter is a big deal, and it isn't a front and center thought for most people who live in homes or apartments to realize what a blessings it is to afford a shelter.  Never forget that.  By the way, isn't my cousin's living room just GORGEOUS!?  Also, I wanted to point out the black with gold bracelet I am wearing!  It's made by local community artists in Fresno, California.  Along the lines of buying local, think about what buying fair trade and it's impact.  If buying from local artisans helps stimulate our local economy, buying fair trade products can help rebuild communities abroad.  Learn more on buying fair trade fashion here and browse some fair trade brands here.

"Even if you start with small pieces,
it's great to make the effort to begin buying
local, from people whose businesses
are helping rebuild their communities and cities!" 

My black bracelet bracelet was a gift from my aunt.  She got if from Inner City Threads. "Inner City Threads is an urban "community" brand of fashionable attire.Our company is built on our community of local designers and with each purchase, our brand donates to organizations that serve the homeless within our communities." - Inner City Threads Facebook Page  
Cool, huh? :) Remember to keep CHRIST in CHRISTmas!


Wishing you a very very Merry Christmas,
Christine (a trying sister in Christ)
