My Secret Santa gifts for Kerry and her family

Kerry is a very busy lady with 6 gorgeous kids and one on the way, I was so happy to have her as my secret santa.
I am sure Kerry won't mind me sharing what I made for her.
Firstly I made her some Christmas bunting, it seems that was a very popular choice this year. I made it reversable so that it can be used for the girls' birthdays or just to hang in one of their rooms. I had plenty of pink scraps so this was not a problem!!

Then I decided to make these advent pockets, wow were they time consuming, but I loved every relaxing minute sitting down stitching those numbers on, all the time thinking of the wonderful things Kerry and her family would be doing together at Christmas. On the dangles were little tasks that the family could complete together in the lead up to Christmas. In her package were some craft sheets to help, glitter and bags for the reindeer food, candy canes, hooks to hang things up with, popcorn to have while watching a Christmas movie and a recipe for candy cane cookies.

Sorry for the dodgy photos, it was a last minute thought to take them.

Merry Christmas Kerry and family!
