Family Christmas Wreaths

Life's Most beautiful things 
are not seen with the eyes,
but felt with the heart!

Is there anything truer???

I made 7 wreaths and have 1 to go...the wreaths I have made go to my 5 siblings and there families
and to 3 daughters...

This is wreath #1 for a daughter, a family wreath can be anything...
it can hold pictures of Christmas past...

or vacations..anything..and these wreaths can be anything the owner wants it to be...
But I includes pictures of our Mom, Our Grandma, Our Omi (Gr grandma)
For it's all of ours..first Christmas without her. (wreath # 1)

This 2nd wreath is for my sister...and its a Christmas Memory pic of her and our Mom
hers is burlap and silver. None of these wreaths are 100% alike.

(wreath # 2) a added little heart stars from the heavens..

This is wreath #3 For a Brother and his wife. This sister in law loves the colors Eggplant and brown...
these wreaths can be used year round
or just for Christmas...whatever they wish to do...

(Wreath # 3) 
Personalizing them...was fun! and did you notice something in the last two...

(wreath # 3)
They only have 1 picture frame! This was due to budget constrictions...
I am sending the other wallet pics I have and ribbon so they can
add more frames if they like... (and if not..I know what to give them next year)
does that seem to frugal???
I tend to LOVE giving..and thus with Christmas i have to stay on tract
because my list is so Looooooooong! 

This is wreath #4 for a daughter...a single daughter :) she can add frames
as her journey in life continues on...
I wanted her to know, that the many hours she stayed
with her Grandma during treatments in her neck of the woods...
was a priceless gift to her!

(Wreath # 4)
Grandma felt loved and cherished with her by her side...these
two had a special bond...and in the end of her life,
Our daughter got to care give for her Grandma.
And Grandma's favorite colored rose..was pink...

This is Wreath #5 for My brother and his wife, and there 4 children
this sister in law loves Yellows and browns and whites...

(Wreath #5)
So I made sure she got the cottage style  button :)

(Wreath # 5)
I put a pick of there 4 kids with our mom in the frame...
But there are other pics ready to more frames :)

This is wreath #6 and Finally I found a whole family pic with my mom!!!
This Brother has 2 children and his wife loves reds, golds and browns :)

There Kids are so young..this wreath is a wonderful way...
for them to remember the grandma that went home...sooner
then we ever had assumed!

Faith, hope and love...
that is how we are getting through this Christmas...
I don't think  there's any better way.

Wreath # 7
This is for My Bachelor brother, kept simple..and I look
forward to the day, extra frames will be added...
as he finds the person to journey through life with :)

(Wreath # 7)
This will be a hard Christmas for him...but we  are all aware
and will do our show our love!
