Now, don’t panic!
To try and help you, we have put together a list of great stuff to help you count down to the big event.
- There will be 31 different crafts that you still have time to make, for gifts, in October.
- There will be 30 different cookie recipes, that you can gather ingredients to bake, off in November.
- There will be 24 different things you can add to your family holiday traditions in December – to help keep the Christ in Christmas.
Let’s get started with those crafts: here is a fun idea from Pocket Full of Whimsy – Vintage Photo Pillows!
Are you leery of actually using a sewing machine? Pillows are a VERY easy thing to make! I see this as a great idea if you have recently lost someone in your family. Hunt down pictures of that special person – even better if you find them with that person who you wanted to gift this pillow too. Use that photo in your pillow and it will become a cherished treasure.
What do you need?
Fabric, your sewing machine and get this: Freezer Paper!

I have a GREAT picture of Miss Sarah, with the hubster and his late aunt – that would make a perfect gift for my mother in law! She’s blind but I can see her hugging that pillow right now….
