Day 1....or counting down- 39 days

I decided to do something handmade for Christmas gifts this year.
I decided this yesterday.

I may have lost my mind.

We only exchange gifts for the kids (once you're 18 you're out).

They do a drawing for the adults, but we usually sit out of that one.

There are 8 kids that I need gifts for.

That's a LOT of fabric.

JoAnn's was having a huge sale, which ended yesterday, so I just happened to get lucky.

So Day 1 I picked out the fabric and got it all prepped and washed.

I'll try to keep updating as I go (assuming I have time).

Wish me luck, I think I'm going to need it.


  1. Good luck! I wish I were so ambitious!

  2. I cant wait to see how they turn out. Goog luck!

  3. Great idea! Can't wait to see the progress....

  4. So are you making blankets and a pillow? I need two gifts for boys under one so I am watching!

  5. Ooh... whatcha gonna make?! I'm doing SOME homemade this year. Making jars of cocoa mix and homemade marshmallows! I also made magets of my children for the grandparents. Fun, fun!
