So I thought I’d toss out some before-they-were-gifts pictures. Can I do it? Christmas for 8 people in under $100.
So I camped out over the past few months at the thrift store on $1 days. Kind of like Treasure hunting.
So for $3 I found some cream top sheets and a white pillowcase that when combined with a $1.99 sale pattern will hopefully make my girls some wonderful nightgowns. Total $4.99 for 3 plus nighties.
.25 cent thrift store pattern and $2.99 flannel top sheet = Two adult p.j.'s for $3.24
The boys were a bit more. However I did get real material for them at 75% off but it was still 1.69 a yard. I'll figure out how much they end up costing after I'm done sewing.
I'll surprise you later with some extra gifts that I'm making using some left-over boat cushion denium...
Some Free Capri Sun Empty pouches...
And the plastic from a package that contained a dog bed we bought a while ago.
So hopefully in a couple of days I'll show you the results.
Before I forget...
Our sweet Christmas Elf visited again. And No - I'm not trying to find out who it is. When I see the car lights coming down the road I try to distract my kids so as not to spoil the surprise. I am curious. Thank you Elf.
So here is the sweet message and goodies left on our doorstep.
Four calling birds, we can't pay the fare,
For all we have is a purse full of air.
As Christmas fast approaches, and calls you must make,
Don't use these gold coins or the phone you will break.
We hope that you are having as much fun as we are,
Certainly by now you must be looking for our car!!
