Crocheted Mandalas and Little Crochet Gifts

crochet mandala
Crocheted Mandalas by Lynne Rowe has 20 designs we can follow to make mandalas or circle shape designs that can be used as coasters, table mats, or stitched together to make beautiful bedspreads, table runners, scarves, bags, art and more. I like that crocheting mandalas are portable and can be done easily on-the-go.

With the holiday season nearing, my family and I look for good quality hostess gifts and potluck items we can take to family and friends when we visit them, especially when time is limited to make our own. It is also wonderful to have these items in the fridge during the holidays to quickly prep the table when guests arrive. We hope the list below with the twelve items available at Metro will come in handy for you this holiday season.

Win Your Own Kits to Give as Handmade Gifts for the Holidays

It is always special when the gifts we get especially from our children are handmade. This shows how much effort, love, and care they put into making it. My children and I got a chance to use and play with awesome Klutz Kits that provide fun activities for everyone over 8. Since 1977 Klutz creates activity kits that come with all the materials and instructions we need to make fabulous crafts. I think these kits are wonderful for both children and adults alike who enjoy doing crafts or learning how to do crafts. The end products of what we make using the material and inspiration from these kits can be given as gifts to loved ones.

Give the Gift of Hope by Sharing BeadforLife

Recently, I got to know about a wonderful program called BeadforLife that has grown over the years through women connecting around the world. When we share this story of BeadforLife, or a piece of their unique jewelry or Shea product, it opens a new world of possibilities for women in Uganda who are trying to lift their families out of extreme poverty. The World Bank defines extreme poverty as living on $1.25 or less a day.

Show Your Love with Hallmark Gifts

Expressing love with these specialty gifts from Hallmark is sure to bring lots of smiles to our loved ones. There are lots of choices at Hallmark such as cute plush toys, blooming expression flowers, signature cards and more. I think we should express love everyday and not only on Valentine’s, and think these gifts are appropriate to give throughout the year.

Spring comes with many occasions to celebrate

Spring is here, with it comes lots of wonderful celebrations...  My daughter bloomed in spring, along side with hyacinths so we totally look forward to spring to celebrate her birthday.  
With upcoming celebrations such as Mother's day, Father's day, achievements like graduations, birthdays, and anniversaries I look for thoughtful things to give my loved ones.  My family and I have been able to rely on Hallmark cards and products to help us make our statements of love to each other.

Give a gift that will save lives and brighten many futures

This holiday season we can give gifts that will change lives of many families overseas to break from the cycle of poverty in a tangible way.  We can help these communities in developing countries and support the relief work of World Vision.  There are over 60 gifts we can choose from the World Vision site or call this 1-800-844-7993 number.  These sincere gifts will cheer up our family and friends, while helping those in developing countries to buy essential things needed for their livelihood i.e. food, shelter, healthcare and education.  With every purchase we make, we will get a card saying the difference the gift makes to a grateful family in the developing country.   
We can buy "2 hens and a rooster" as a gift for our family members or friends who enjoy cooking.  This gift will benefit a family trying to come out of poverty with about 150 eggs a year.
We can also choose to give "a goat" to a family member who loves animals.  This purchase will help a family in a developing country to use the goat for milk and manure, which will support their livelihood.
If you are looking to give a fashionable piece of accessory there are three options to choose from.  A Haitian hand-beaded necklace will change the lives of women and children around the world by supporting programs and getting them out of poverty by providing training, loans and skills.
Women and girls who have escaped their village because of exploitation and abuse make this beautiful beaded Turquoise wood bracelet with Thai beads.  The funds from these bracelets help the girls and women to live in safe houses and provide them protection, education and mentoring programs by older girls.
The hand woven embroidered silk scarf is made by women in Thailand.  The funds from our purchase helps support women and their families by providing them with micro loans, training etc.  
We can choose from a variety of gifts such as Mobile phones that support health workers to get a smartphone with access to critical medical information such as tools to check vital signs of illness, pregnancy and essential nutritional counselling 24 hours so they can support their community.  
Last mile mobile solution (LMMS) is a card that families can scan to get aid in an easy dignified manner when they need.  Protect a child from child labour, community savings kits, help supply a classroom, help drill a well for water, clothes, fruit trees, cow, mosquito nets, etc... are other gifts that we can choose from, which will benefit many people in the developing countries.

Lets stand together, open our hearts and help our brothers and sisters around the world!
