hand made!

Last year, I made my daughter a blanket and pillow set and my son a pillow with a special covering (fleece). I made them both coupon books for things like getting out of a chore, extra time on the internet, and a free "get out of jail" card for a small infraction - to be used only with my agreeance. they loved those!

I made a quilt for my mom, and i bought my sisters gift - a set of silicone baking mats - that's the only thing she asked for.

I spent about $200 total on christmas last year for everyone - and about 90 hours of actual work sewing and cutting and stuff. But the delight on their faces ...totally worth the time!!
