Recycled Yard Lights

Hey there!

Hope everyone had a nice Christmas!  I realized that we are in the middle of the after-Christmas sales, and thought this idea might be timely.  Have you noticed that some decorations are clearly for Christmas only, but some of them are basically normal items that are disguised as Christmas stuff?  Take these for example:

And let me apologize now for the bad pictures... I didn't think it was worth breaking out the real camera for this one, and well, I learned my lesson.

It's Christmas Time Already?

Hi there friends!

It's good to be back!  After dedicating the last 7 weeks or so entirely to my engineering job, I finally have a chance to breathe again.  Hopefully in the next couple weeks I will have some fun projects to share.  I actually tried to finish a few projects in the last couple months, but for one reason or another most of them did not turn out how I hoped.  Picture a nicely decorated clay pot.... with a dead plant inside.  oops.  Maybe I'll share those in a future post and we can laugh at them together.  

Today I am going to share a couple Christmas ideas, as well as my favorite recipe for a cold weather drink- chai tea.

I have two simple ornaments to show you that look nice, don't cost too much, and are easy to put together.  I made both of these a couple years ago, but have used them on our tree every year since.
