    Santa Claus made these for my kids this Christmas! He left this poem with them:

    Hi! I’m your get-well gremlin.
    Can I please live on your bed?
    When your tummy is tremblin’
    Lie down and rest your head.

    Dab some oil on a cotton ball
    I will hold it in my little pouchy.
    There’s no boo-boo too big or small,
    I can take away your ouchy.

    I wanted to attach a photo, but don’t see a way to add it in the comment section here. If you have an email address, I’m happy to send it to you that way, if you’re interested.

    These are great! Just in time for runny noses, which will probably hit the day after Halloween.

    For another great herb book, see (if you haven’t already) *A Kid’s Herb Book* by Lesley Tierra. My daughter loves it.

    I’ve been following your blog for a while and made my kids the oak leaf laurels for their fairy costumes. Thanks for the great ideas and the free sharing of them!

    These are so cute!! Thanks for the closeup of the whip stitching. I’ve been trying to remember the few hand stitches I know because my son became very interested in doing some sewing when I was making his Halloween costume and I’m hopeless without a machine. He should love this project. I hope your little ones are all better soon!
