Dec 7 is grandson 23 sister and a friend 26 granddaughter
in that mix throw in anniversaries and people at work and Thanksgiving and Christmas
Yeah not fun moneywise AT ALL...........
and with all the expenses we have had just now makes it worse.
gotta figure out this year what I am gonna do. I usually just get scratch tickets for brothers in a card. no biggee
the nieces are starting with their own apartments so I am trying to do something for that
the grandsons are hard as they have all kinds of expensive electronics that I cant afford the parts to
we will see how I go.
I was going to t ry and help son with some back to school supplies but I don't see that happening now. gotta save every penny and build back up. literally. got some .17 cent notebooks at WalMart and some pencils, crayons and rulers as a start. will give to him when he comes over.
I gotta find my Temecula letters pattern and start spelling out the grandsons names
for their quilts
they are into hockey and I am thinking of a box in the center with their name
then behind that a hockey stick and puck that comes down to make the center of the quilt
and bordered in black.
because hockey is black and white and little color I was thinking the names could
be colorful in the center
they have a bunk bed so have to figure out how to adjust the size a bit to fit right
there should be just a little to tuck I would think
Does anyone know what size fits a bunk bed good?
those are on the "list" and I think once the lettering gets done they SHOULD work up quickly
at least that is what my little brain is telling me LOL
