My friends know I traditionally make lots of homemade cards and gifts. So I was thrilled with Cousin Melanie's gift at the Schmidling Christmas gathering last weekend! Fuzzy holiday sock full of dry beans for heating or freezing as a compress.
Winger was eager to try it--as he has a bruise on the heel of his hand from hockey. When he put it in the microwave to warm up, there were sparks immediately! That's when I noticed the pretty ribbon closure had a wire-tie inside. I simply tied a knot on the end instead. But I like Christmas presents that sparkle!
