this is santas underwear that i stuffed with candy and a note saying, "i searched for a stocking, and couldn't find a spare, so i ended up stuffing santas red underwear." this isn't the exact one i made, very similar though. i sewed the entire thing up except the backflap and that's where the candy came from. i made these 10 yrs ago (oh my gosh, its been THAT long!) as a handout at church for my friends :)
one year in young womens i got a handout and have made it again throughout the years. it's the poem of the christmas nail.
It's Christmas time at our house and we're putting up the tree.
Some little sign or symbol to show friends stopping by,
The little babe was born one day but He really came to die.
Some symbol of His nail-pierced hands, the blood He shed for you and me.
What if I hung a simple nail on my shining Christmas tree?
A crimson bow tied round the nail as His blood flowed down so free,
to save each person from their sin and redeem us for eternity.
But when I see this simple nail I know He died for me.

one year while we were living in huntington beach, my mom asked me to make starfish ornaments for family members that live in new york. again, these aren't the EXACT ones i made, but very similar.
and this year i'm making the cinnamon applesauce ornaments that are drying right now. once i have them decorated i'll post pictures. i wish i would have done it earlier this month so i could mail them to people. but i guess i'll have my gift for next year :) i'm also making my favorite peanut butter ball recipe and the rudolph brownies for jarens co-workers. hence the reindeer poop silly gift. cause they're all a bunch of sickos like that! lol.
