If you’;re looking for a great last-minute Christmas gift idea, then you may like this free printable Christmas Pillowcase poem. Print it out and attach it to a special pillowcase to be used only on Christmas Eve!!

My oldest daughter turned 21 this year. Let me tell you when people say that childhood goes by fast they are NOT kidding. It seems like only a few years ago that she was pestering us to wake up at 4 am on Christmas morning to see “;what Santa brought”;.? I miss so much those early years with the kids at Christmas (although I do not miss 4 am wake up calls!).

funny standard pillowcases

With 3 older kids (the youngest are 15 yr old twins) our Christmas traditions have evolved over the years, but many things have remained the same. Each year I’;m always surprised how important some of our simple traditions are for our kids. One year I suggested skipping making gingerbread cookies and almost had a coup on my hands!

A friend of mine introduced me to a fun new Christmas tradition several years ago. Her kids have special pillowcases that they use only on Christmas Eve! I thought it was such a clever idea and decided to incorporate the idea into our family Christmas eve traditions.

At the time my kids were a bit too old for Santa but my nephews were not. They were 3 and 5 at the timeunique wedding gifts couple, the perfect age for the “;magic”; of Christmas and Santa Claus.

I attached a tag to the pillowcases (also given to me by my friend) to explain the idea and tradition behind the pillowcases a bit more.

Today I am going to share with you a free printable with the Christmas pillowcase poem on it. It reads:

“;Each Christmas Eve I lay in bed I cannot fall asleep ‘;Cuz Santa and his elves will bring some toys and games that beep!

My brain is in a thinking mode I wiggle and I giggle Then I get my MAGIC CASE And slip it on my pillow.

I close my eyes and start to dream Of gifts and sugar plums. Then all at once, my mother’;s voice Tells me that Santa’;s come.

When you can’;t sleep on Christmas Eve You toss and turn and wiggle Just slip this MAGIC PILLOW case over your soft pillow”;

If you have been looking for a simple gift for a niece, nephew or grandchild this may fit the bill. It’;s simple and who couldn’;t use another pillowcase?

I stitched the pillowcase myself. If you’;d like to do that you can follow this tutorial on my site to learn how to sew a custom pillowcase. If you don’;t sew, no worries!! You can also use a purchased pillowcase.

All you need to do is tie the pillowcase up with a bit of bakers twine or ribbon and attach the tag. I layered my tag with a bit of Christmas themed scrapbook paper just to give it a bit more detail.

To get the tag just hop on over to the TEMPLATES PAGE to?download it for free.

As high school comes to an end for many seniors, it’s time to start thinking about how to prepare for their next adventure: college. For many soon-to-be freshmen, going away to school is a completely new experience. If your son or daughter is anxious about what they’re about to encounter in college, here are some helpful tips to read to them.Every millennial loves the Iris Pj set because it’s a cute, comfortable outfit to wear while lounging around your dorm room or watching the Bachelorette with your girlfriends.

My 7-year-old, Elli, is in 1st grade.? This is the year her curious brain has blossomed.? She’s reading like crazy, writing notes and short stories on scratch paper, and creating elaborate games that she insists we all play together as a family.? She even plans parties and performances that we all must attend, down in the basement…..complete with invitations, posters, and costumes. Ha…..this girl has a busy little brain!

This is my entry for the Instructables Back-To-School Contest! Please vote for me~! ^_^Thanks so much for all your support! I managed to place as a runner-up! :DWith the new school year approaching this month, and noticing that I often dig around in my bag for a pencil, I realized I needed a new pencil case.But the dilemma I have is that all the pretty pencil cases are very expensive, and all the dull ones break easily! So what am I to do?Well... how about make my own?This pencil case will cost you under $3 and a few hours. For me, it took five hours or so, but be reminded that I chose to hand sew my pencil case! A sewing machine will probably take off at least three of those hours.The only sewing skills you will need are how to thread a needle, how to do a oversewing stitch (also known as a blanket stitch), a running stitch, and a hem stitch, all relatively easy.A great instructable on how to sew:? pencil case I made is modeled after the Studio Ghibli character, Totoro. You don't have to make yours like I did, but with this pattern you can pretty much add any detailing you like. For example, I'm currently working on another Hello Kitty pencil case, and my first one was a Domo-kun pencil case. ^_^This is my first Instructable! :D
