Have a Merry Christmas!


I’ve made a lovely (and strange) video concerning Kmart closing. Join me on what might be my last visit through this iconic store . . . memories and feelings will be evoked.


Recycle Your Old Greeting Cards


I needed some “safe” ornaments for my tree this year. (I have two pet ferrets and three cats.) So, I gathered up some old greeting cards, mail envelopes, and wrapping paper scraps. I also used toilet paper tube rolls for this project to add strength. I was very happy with the results. My goal was to make them as simply as possible. I just don’t have all of the time in the world and wanted something cute that the animals wouldn’t eat or break. The two minute video tutorial can be found here. Thanks for visiting and have a great holiday season!

Cheap Entertainment!



Get together with a bunch of friends and go caroling. I made an event on Facebook and we’ll be gathering in the center of town tomorrow to do a caroling power walk. That’s right! We’ll be getting exercise while we sing our favorite songs of the season spreading cheer. Some of the songs will be non-traditional including the Grinch, Santa Baby, Do You Wanna Build a Snowman, and Snow Miser. I’m simply printing lyric sheets for each person and we’ll be winging it! Everyone was asked to wear something red so that we look like a planned group.
