Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Last Minute Shopping...DIY!

As Christmas draws nearer and nearer, very little time remains for shopping, especially for the little gifts that may have been forgotten. The last minute push will have people rushing around almost in a daze...in a craze anyway! So, do something different. Stay away from the malls, put your imagination to work. Invite family and friends over and be creative. Make some small gifts together or simply let the time of enjoyment be the gift itself...give the gift of smiles and laughter.

The Time When Giving Rules


Christmas is a time for giving
Loving, laughing, living
Forgetting and forgiving
Remembering, reliving


Christmas brings time for laughter
Today, tomorrow, thereafter
Gifts of love you are the crafter 
Those ne'er bought before or after


Something to use, something to share
The idea is showing you care
Make it something with flair
 Or totally risque if you dare


If you decide food's the thing
 Plan it with a little zing
Small goodies smiles doth bring
When the mason jar is king


If the gift is a gift of money
Just be sure to make it funny
Any dollar bill, sweet as honey
Leaves the day bright and sunny

Less demanding use simple tools 
Maybe rhinestone studded jewels
Some little wooden sewing spools
This is the time when giving rules
