    I saw a thread saying that lots of people are making pillowcases for Christmas. If any of you are making some for children, here is a cute poem that can be pinned to the pillowcase and given to them BEFORE Dec. 1.


    December the first starts a magical time,

    With all sorts of colors, ribbons, and rhyme...

    Sugar plum fairies will dance in your head....

    If you put this special pillowcase on your bed.

    The reason its special, as you will soon see

    Is that it's been dusted with Christmas Fancy!

    Visions of candy canes, Santa and treasures

    Will fill each dream with sweetness and pleasures.

    When the time comes for it to be washed

    Do it quickly so no magic is lost.

    What a cute poem. I had one about a magic Santa key for kids who don't have a chimney for Santa to come down. I don't know where I found that poem or where I put it now *L* I made them before to sell at craft fairs. If you find the old skeleton keys they look really cute.

    A long time ago I belonged to a crafty club here on the net. someone wanted a poem for a "magic pillowcase". I wrote that poem and there for awhile everyone was using it. lol.. I guess I had sort of forgotten about it until you posted it. lol...

    Thanks so much, you just helped me figure out what to give my grandkids for "Christmas Tree Day" Because we can never all get together for Christmas, we pick a day early in Dec. and the whole family gathers and we go cut a tree and the kids decorate it and we eat and sing and I always give each of them a small gift...I had no idea for this year, until now...Thanks again

    Thank you so much...I already printed it out! Have the pillowcases already cut out for the rest of the holidays this year for six grandkids. The poem is really a sweet touch.

    Fidgety...GREAT JOB!!!
