Homemade Christmas Gifts - #2

Posted by Lori:

Here are more from our family Christmas homemade gift tradition:
My mother-in-law made these cute shotgun shell Santas.
One of my sister-in-law's sews these neat t-shirt bags.  The bags are eventually going to be sold by her to help an organization called "Path of Hope Foundation".  Read the note below to see what this foundation does for young, needy girls in Central America.  When she gets her Etsy shop set up, I will have a link to it on my blog.
One of my brother-in-laws got into the homemade gift tradition this year with these nifty "survivor bracelets".  Each cord strand has 7 cords within it that can be used for many "survival" tasks.  How neat!
He even found a way to make this homemade gadget that helps him hold the cords while he is braiding the bracelets!  Look on YouTube for survival bracelet thingy :).....maybe!
One of my sister-in-laws was in Branson, so unable to participate in the homemade gift exchange, but we're looking forward to seeing what she finds for a "homemade" substitute!!

On this GRATITUESDAY, I am grateful for family.....for traditions.....and for homemade gifts made with loving hands....and for organizations such as the Path of Hope Foundation who are concerned with the needs of others.

I'm saving mine and my daughter's homemade gifts for separate posts that I'll share in the next few days.

What a fantastic idea for family gifts! I would love to start this tradition with our family. Although with my less-than-par crafting skills, my contribution would have to be food. :)
I especially love the t-shirt bag with the cause. Have a merry Christmas!

WaWa - Yes! Maybe the men will all get in to the swing of the homemade gifts. I'd better talk to mine soon so he'll start thinking for next year!! :)

Pary Moppins - Food would be appreciated, I am certain! Merry Christmas to you, too!
