Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Holiday Gift Ideas

I'm trying to come up with some crafty gifts the kids can make this year for the grandparents. My favorite, so far, are coasters made from ceramic tiles. I've seen several different forms of this project using supplies such as scrapbook paper, rubber stamps, permanent markers and then some sort of sealant. Each variety I've come across has been a set of four, put together with a festive holiday bow. I think the kids will really enjoy decorating them and the grandparents will enjoy using them. I would like a set myself and am in search of a wine print or possible grapes. If you come across that in a scrabooking paper please let me know.

I have my wine fermenting in the shed. I'll give it a try around Thanksgiving and then again mid-December. I hope to be able to send a bottle to my Parents, along with their coasters, I just need to come up with a nice name and label design. Any suggestions?

What are your holiday gift plans. Do you do anything creative you'd like to share or do you buy all your gifts?
