I made two pillowcases for some cousins of mine. I needed to have them ready for my mom to take home to Ohio in a couple of weeks for Christmas gifts when she goes home!

I was able to knock some items off my to do list, but there is so much more to do. I had hoped to complete some more items - but I guess there are only so many hours in the day!!!!! Off to work on some more items!

Wild Horses, Airplanes and Things That Bite
Bear Traps (my husband's 2nd favorite!)
December 2002: Harley Saves Christmas
Confusing Words Can Lead to Embarrassing Moments (my husband's favorite!)
Enjoy!! These stories are all sadly true and do not include ANY embellishments. Never a dull moment around this household!!!
We purchase our bags from either Whole Foods or Central Market for only $1.00 usually. They also come in small and large sizes. Instead of using tissue paper, we are going to stuff dish towels in the top like you would tissue paper. I am hoping to customize dish towels with fabric for each family member. Some fabric that reminds me of my relatives. For example, my one brother-in-law likes the Texas Longhorns. Might make for a fun towel to use when cooking out during the summer - right? Not only will my family get gifts, but they will get reusable grocery tote bags and a dish towel. We can all use those items, right? It is like giving a Christmas gift to Mother Earth. Do you have any green tips for making Christmas more Earth Friendly?
I found the greatest gifts I am going to attempt to make for my niece and nephew for Christmas.
I am making this dragon for my nephew. You can buy this pattern for only $10.00! I know! You can purchase the pattern on NoseyNest. She has some great items for sale if you are still looking for some ideas for your nieces and nephews!!
Keep your fingers crossed that Aunt Tracey can successfully complete these projects with little to no cussing, throwing of items and yelling matches with the sewing machine!!!
