2009 Holiday RAOK's - signups open

Recommended Posts

I really enjoyed the HIJ ROAK, and I think this will be fun duing this hectic time. I am a sahm to Clare, 1 year old, and it is exciting for me when I get something fun for me in the mail. Plus, we LOVE walking to the post office to send things off :-).


:candycane A Christmas Card and Note from you and your family. I loved getting those updates with pictures when I was little. It was so much fun to see what all of our family friends were up to. (My dad was in the Air Force...so we had lots of friends from all over.) Now that I am married, I miss getting those cheery cards.


:candycane Crocheted bookmarks. I love reading, but usually end up using a slip of paper as I never take the time to make myself a pretty one.


:candycane I would love Christmas ornaments for my daughter, Clare. I recieved one every year from my parents so that when I moved out on my own, I would have ornaments to decorate with. If you do this, please include a little note for her that I can keep with the ornamet for future years.

P.S. St. Nicolas is going to bring Clare one every year on Dec. 6, just like he did my brother and I as we were growing up :-D


:candycane A good toddler sweater pattern that uses ww yarn. It can be free--I just haven't found one I like yet :-).
