Handmade Pledge





OK, I didn't fully take the pledge, but I did try. Here are a few of my attempts at making gifts.



Maya's cute Christmas PJ's, tight on her bum, and oh so bell bottomy. I had to try them on her while she was sleeping to make sure they fit.





The boys are getting matching BYU PJ's this year.

My mom would always put cute little tags in the clothes she made me that said "Made by my Mom" or "Stitched with Love", she recently made me something and it had a sweet little "handmade by mom" tag in it. I need to find some!


And here are the scrumptious neighbor treats we are handing out this year. They aren't just any chocolate covered pretzels, they had caramel wrapped around them before they were dipped. Do you know how hard it was for me to have 5 lbs. of caramel in my house, and not eat the whole thing!?!?!?

Even Michael got into the fun. He is making me a gift. I'm so excited to see what it is!!!

Tomorrow I will post my very favorite handmade gift. I love it so much, I want to keep it!

I would be glad to teach you! Not that I'm an expert or anything, but I can do the basics.

Marisa, your kids are so beautiful! I knew that, but every time I see them, I am in awe. Anyway, I have to clarify about my pet rat! I don't remember saying to Megan "She is just a dog." I don't feel badly about putting our pet down, I only feel bad about the fact that our pet had to die for an hour! No family pet should have to endure that. Plus, it's always easy to say stuff when it doesn't apply to you! I would probably be a little more empathetic now. Did I save face? I will be at Cameron's reception Sat. night...wish you guys could be here.
