Warm Bodies = Warm Hearts

I have so many little projects for Christmas. I hope I get them all done in time!! For the past 4 years or so, we've been making things for our extended family. Now I usually buy gifts for our kids, my sister's kids, Dave's two 2nd cousins and 3 sets of parents. My sisters and everyone else, I find a project, an ornament, and we make cookies and chocolate. Before we bought gifts for everyone and it got to be such a huge pain. As soon as we start on things I will share what we're putting together.
For now I am working hard for the mission our church is doing by collecting hats, gloves, mittens and scarves for children in need. As soon as I heard I became pretty excited because I knew I could put some scarves together (plus it meant cheap shopping on the remnant rack at Walmart and Hobby Lobby!) I love being able to put things together for practically nothing. These scarves cost a total of $5 to make. So $1 a scarf really. My goal is to see how many I can put together in the next week and turn in. I figure 5 scarves a day, maybe 35 total? Dave hopes the house doesn't turn into a last priority for me this holiday season. lol
