you are my fave: cardboard christmas trees
Here’s an idea for trees you don’t have to water or put a fence around so your kids don’t break the ornaments.

To make your own you’ll need:
– cardboard (I used a science fair display board)
– razor blade
– mini lights

Step One: Trace triangles onto cardboard.
Step Two: Carefully cut triangles out with razor blade.

Step Three: With razor blade or scissors, make holes  just big enough for lights to fit through.
Step Four: Stick lights through holes, plug in and be dazzled.

    happy that I came across this during my search for something regarding

    That’s a good start to see if it is a taste that you will enjoy.
    Tender coconut water increases glow and fairness of
    skin. In addition, almost daily use of coconut oil on my body
    had also left my fingernails very strong and they are
    growing at an alarming rate.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of
    this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times
    it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability
    and visual appearance. I must say you have done a
    superb job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super
    quick for me on Safari. Outstanding Blog!

    May I simply just say what a relief to uncover an individual who
    genuinely understands what they are discussing on the web. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    A lot more people really need to check this out
    and understand this side of your story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular since
    you most certainly possess the gift.

    While you should build a site for network marketing, you
    may find that even a social networking site would be
    a great start. Network marketing (mlm) provides the opportunity for anyone,
    from any walk of life, to develop long-term ongoing residual income.
    Now, A, B, C and D shop through the catalogs, let’s say,
    a total volume of $5,000 per month.
