Homemade Gifts

This is the Irish Hiking Hat- made for my friend as a birthday gift, actually, not a Christmas gift. We got to go on a date with our husbands the other night- we saw a fantastic award-winning local band receiving critical acclaim across North America- Hey Rosetta! Check them out on myspace...

Here are some hand-made pillows by my friend Tracie Brown that I absolutely LOVE!! They are for my 2 nieces and nephew:

Tracie has a website, and can take orders: check her out here.

Remember when shovelling used to be fun!?! (Especially with a new Lightning McQueen shovel!)
