My First Magazine Christmas Tree

That tree was really fun to make! The only problem is that I bought a can of opal spray glitter and it doesn't really show up too sparkly. I think I may have to do the spray and glue and shake on glitter thing. I did an O Magazine and it got to be a big much toward the end. I may pick a less thick magazine next time. The other thing I would do is turn the magazine over and start folding from the back. From my catalog days, I know that the right hand page is usually the "hot" page and I noticed that most of the very colorful ads were on that side. And that is the side that gets folded under. I am sure this doesn't make sense, but once you do one, you will know what I mean. There really is a bunch of stuff that is still on my to-do list, but I think I will just scratch some items off and pretend they got done. Tomorrow starts three weekends in a row of family visits, food and fun. I think I need to relax and store up some energy. I may not blog tomorrow night. I made an extra big batch of daiquiri slush, and I just may have to have one or two. If that is the case, and I don't get to visit with you until the next day, I wish for you a very Merry Christmas. And I want to thank you for visiting my blog. Let's hope 2011 is a better year for those who struggled with 2010. And let's hope there are lots of fun new things to create and share. God Bless!

  1. Nice tree. We made these when we were kids. Did you miss that 60's craze? Thanks for the righthand page tip. This might be a relaxing thing to do while watching a holiday movie.

    Merry Christmas!
