gift of cashIt’s so easy to buy gifts for our children when they’re little.  It’s all about the toys!  My grandchildren have browsed through the toy catalog from Toys-R-Us so many times that almost every toy in the book has been circled now.  But as everyone knows it gets more difficult as they get older.  And as for the adults, at least in my family, they usually want a gift card from somewhere.

I decided to send a gift of cash to my daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren in California, but I wanted to package it in some way that would be fun and they would have to work to get their money out.

I came up with an idea to use Read more….

fairy gardenLast week I was strolling through the Christmas decoration aisles at Walmart and I happened to see this Jumbo LED Globe Ornament on the top shelf.  I instantly thought “fairy garden” and knew I had to take it home with me.  So after struggling to get it off the top shelf, it became mine!

My plan was to fill the bottom with snow and add some fairy garden items.   Read more….

Christmas TreeAt the end of last years Christmas season, it was time to say farewell to our old Christmas tree.  My husband was tired of wrestling with it each year to put it together, hold it together, get the lights to work and so on.  That meant a new tree for this season.

We went looking for a tree and picked out a small, 5 ft tall tree.  We chose this tree because of next years retirement plans which include selling our house and probably living in a 5th wheel for awhile, but that’s a different story. So anyway, we bought this little tree so it would fit wherever we happen to be next Christmas (hopefully!).

The bloggers participating in the DIY Blog Challenge were challenged this month to create a Christmas decoration.  I needed to decorate my little tree and I needed a DIY project, so I decided to make a macrame garland for the tree. Read more….
