Meme part 1: Gifts (and more iceing!!)

These wre made at Amy's on friday. So fun! Then, yesterday we did it AGAIN in school. I'm all iced out!!

Sew Mama Sew has put out an invitation to join thier holiday blog meme. I love to play too, so, here are my answeres!...

Do you have a favorite gift that you love to give? Bags. I love making bags, but one only can use so many.
If you’re making gifts this year, what are you making? I''ve made a few gifts, but I won't show yet. Just in case. Last year I made all the gifts on my list. Every year I like to make an ornament for each family in our family. Here are some. Haven't started this years yet(but I'm excited about the pattern(s) I chose...yoyos!!or buttons...or pnked edges or...I'm running out of time!!)
Do you have any good stories about handcrafted gifts you’ve given or received?I made my boys flannel PJ pants last year on my serger. I used the wrong stitch and the seams ripped out on both the first time they wore them. We saw their bums. I fixed the seams on my regular machine and they are now the favorite PJs which makes me so happy!
Do you have any great gift compilation ideas (a grouping of gifts just perfect for certain recipients?) I love a movie basket with popcorn and candy. Though I've never done this as a Christmas gift.
Name one thing on your personal wish list. Scalloped pinking shears. for fun cutting. I really like scissors. A lot.
Do you make and sell things that would make fantastic gifts?
No, but I have been wanting to do a craft fair the last 3 years. Thing is they are always around the holiday time. I grew up going with my mom to all kinds of craft shows, and I love them. (only got to see one this year)

Off to more gift sewing and baking and wrappin and visiting...MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Probably not the greatest to check out with Zeke and Robby around (it's not bad, but may raise questions you don't want to answer) but I promise you and James (James especially) will laugh your butts off.

Are you still looking for scalloped scissors? Is it for fabric or paper?
