    This is How I Am "Wrapping" the Grandkids Christmas Presents

    I made the grandkids some marker aprons for Christmas. I had a bunch of little presents like coloring books, coloring posters, and games to give to them too. I bought some more of the fabric that I used for the marker aprons and made a pillowcase to put all of their little presents into. This was so much fun, and I can't wait to give it to them.

    love all your gifts. the kids will love them, so personalized to their liking.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    What a great way to wrap their gifts.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    That is a great gift. I always loved receiving new art supplies. I love the fun pillowcases. Guaranteed to leave them with good thoughts of you every night.

    What a great idea. Maybe next year and I can do some. I will keep my eye open for fabric. My grandchildren always love their new pillowcases -- even at 21.
