Take a $3.00 can of spray paint and "pretty up" your snowbanks!


Use glass enamel paint to add flair to a plain glass votive dish ($1 at Dollar store)


Make some candy treat pouches for the kiddies (1 sheet of felt for $1.29 and a piece of plastic I had around the house):


Paint some cheap wooden craft hearts and hang them on your treat jar 
(wooden hearts from craft store for $1)....

Life slows down in January....

The decorations are down, the parties are over, the company has gone home, the sweets are all eaten,  the drinks have been downed, and my home is back to normal!


I am now settling in for a long winter - January and February can be quite challenging in central NY!
