I met Amy last Spring at SNAP! conference, and it’s been fun to keep in touch with her since then!
I am delighted to share with you our new family holiday tradition: our Kids Christmas Pillowcase. I’m not sure if the idea is new to you or not, but it’s new to me! I just heard about it a few weeks ago, the idea that kids get to pull out a festive pillowcase that is normally stored in the attic with other holiday decor. They slip it on their pillow for the month of December, then pack it away after Christmas so it will be just as fun to pull it out next year! I ran out to the store to buy fabric, and as I stood there perusing the Christmas fabric, I had to make a decision. Is this for ME, or is this for MY KIDS?!? If it were for me, I’d get chevron, polka dots, and pom pom trim in the holiday colors. But since it was for my kids, I went the Santa and reindeer route.
