Christmas Light Storage Idea

Christmas joy...

Holiday lights are always a tough item to put away because people don't know what to do with them. Such an easy way to put your lights away for next year, wrap them around a piece of cardboard. There is always cardboard laying around, you don't need to buy anything special. The cardboard keeps them tangle free till next year.

Merry Christmas

Where did the month go? I wanted to make more decorations, get a newer tree and so much more. Just no time at all. It seemed like the holidays just flew by. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. So many ideas and plans for next year, so I guess I need to start planning sometime in June so that I'm ready for November in 2012.

Here is a great idea from the handy Martha Stewart, I love it because it is a no cost way to store and keep your ornaments safe. Check it out here.

Hope to post some holiday photos soon. If anyone has some wonderful holiday storage ideas, send them my way.

Fun quick project to do with the kids. Older kids could do this on their own younger kids will need help. Some cardboard, holiday ribbon, scissors, glue & glitter. Cut out any shape you want from the cardboard then spread glue all over the cut out cardboard. Have the kids sprinkle glitter all over the glue. Mix it up if you want, we used red and green. After it has dried punch a hole at the top and attach a piece of ribbon. These look wonderful.
