Again, some of the kids favorite presents were my hand made ones. My youngest daughter got a fleece blanket from me. Shes been wearing it around the house like that, and has thanked me several times! I thought she would like her My Little Pony the best but shes hardly played with that! The fleece was a gift to me which I in turn was able to gift. Like the smoked turkey. I guess when you gift something you become a blessing not just for the person receiving it.
My 5 yr old is a little artist and now he can travel in style with his new crayon holder. I got the idea from another WAHM. Who I was looking for so I could link here and give due credit to but did not find. What I did find was uses for WD40 - one of which is removing crayon from walls. Probably good to know if you plan on giving a crayon roll to someone. Anyhow, I made mine or rather my sons, so it can be used for crayons, pens, pencils, markers, chalk, whatever. It folds in half for crayons to keep them from falling out.
I already have more ideas for next year. Thanks to Smockity Frocks. I hope you too got some great ideas.
