A Homemade gift (that DOESN'T suck)

This year, I was in a padded room for Christmas (not really, I was just taking some time off). As such, I didn't get to share all the wonderful things I got this year.

I got some wonderful things.

But you know, the economy stinks right now (in cases you hadn't heard) so there was much homemade gift-giving at my house this year. The best homemade gift, by far this year was one that I got from my baby sister Lindsey (who is now in Junior High).

It took her several years, but look what she made me with my mother's sewing machine:

It's a giant stuffed dragon pillow. How cool is that?

Boy, if I was Amber I would start working on my gift NOW...because it's going to take a pretttttty awesome gift to top that.

Whoa! Is that chenille type material? It's a great gift and you can tell little sister I said so.

Yeah, it's real soft. I mean, I know she used some sort of pattern (or whatever) but there is no way I could stitch it together and stuff it.

It looks and feels store bought. You can't see it, but she put a little "Lindsey made" label on him. It's rad.

I am so glad that you liked my pillow. Have you thought of a good name for him?

Hmmm...I'm usually good at these sort of things, but I can't think of anything.

What do you think?

Present done I made you some OASIS tickets. Rock is way better than a pillow.
