So I will admit, even though I was trying not to get my hopes up, I was hoping that we would be home for the holidays. I was hoping that the Lord's timing for my life plan and my timing were one and the same. Obviously not! I was tying really hard not to get my hopes up, but admittedly that is harder than it seems. Anyway, because of this I have put off those last few Christmas gifts that I need to get and send to family in the States. I have to get this done soon or it will be too late and I will have to pay heaps of money to get it there on time.

This is why I need your help. I have two sisters-in-law to buy for this year. I was going to make them something spectacular, but due to my hoping I have left myself little time to do that. Do you have any ideas of something I can either make quickly or buy and send to the States? Something I can buy on-line in the States and ship to my mom's house? Anything fun on Esty you have seen recently. Something unique yet personal. Anything at all?

I am looking for all kinds of ideas. I need help!

Do they cook? Aprons are all the rage these days. Tons of cute ones out there and tons of tutorials all over blog land. Just an idea.

(Maybe this is a "so-last-year" gift idea. You have to remember I live in Syracuse and am a stay-at-home Mom which can equal "out of touch" :)!)

I have no idea who you have...but I guess there is always a possibility it is me. So in that case...Are you good at making hats? I have been eying a cute knitted or crocheted had.

Or a necklace

Or maybe a gift card to Tai Pan or Real Deals. (even better IMO)

And I am sorry you won't be home for Christmas.

Any news on the job front?
