I am still expecting several things in the mail, including a couple of outfits, some hand knit preemie hats, and the disposable camera & DVD service sets from So that means my new WANTED list looks like this:
At least 5 preemie outfits**

At least 70 more Thank You cards
15 mini bags of coffee
15 mini boxes of chocolates
15 mini tealight holders
15 mini candles
So! There is still a ton of things I'd like to get for these Christmas bags! I'll be getting what I can, making what I can, and hopefully a few more people step up to help out a bit for this special holiday project. :) Spread the word!
* I thought I ordered the hand gel, but didn't. My local store doesn't have enough hand gel in stock to trade these in for me, so I'm trying all the other local B&BW and hope to get these all switched out for hand sanitizing gels soon.
** If donations are received quickly enough, I can use money to get clothing discounted through, so those looking to help towards the clothing costs can save money by doing it this way.
