Look what I made...

I didn't actually make the stocking but I did stitch the names. They turned out so cute, if I do say so myself!



And it was totally therapeutic to do it. I enjoyed it so much I think I'm going to make bags for my mom to use for our stockings next year. Every year she says she isn't going to do much but every year we have our stocking and a bag next to it filled with stuff that she lovingly chose and wrapped! I love you Mommy! Yes, that would be 25 bags I have to stitch. But I have a whole year to do it so that's a whole year of therapy - for free!

You could start a business. I ordered stockings for my kids from Pottery Barn and only had Aaron's personalized this year. Not sure why I didn't do the other two but I was going to attempt it but I'm too afraid.

I love you, too, Mellie. They really are so cute and you are so good at this creative stuff..you didn't get it from me..hehe. What in the world would I do without my kids?? Dunno

They look awesome! And maybe I'll join you in making the 25 bags...with the days that I've been having lately, I could use some "free" therapy!! :)

Don't be scared Leenie! Write it out on a piece of paper and copy it. That's what I did. It was so easy! Good luck!

Oh and Aim...you can take 14 and i'll take 14! That'll clear our minds but good! :) wow, that is totally something my amish friends in lancaster county would say!

Meeeelllll!
Tori and I are doing wonderfully, thanks! We're living in Wisconsin now, until I finish my MBA. Hopefully when I'm done we'll be able to go back to Florida. Tori actually found your blog clicking through the blogs of LWC friends. Still keep in touch with them? Is there a more secure way to send you my email address?
