Find of the Week:
I found these fill-able
ornaments at Dollar Tree. They're made of plastic and come in sets
of two smaller ones or one large one. Dollar Tree also has an
assortment of clear stickers that would be great for decorating
the outside of these ornaments.
See past Finds here.
I find that the Slide Seal
storage bags are just as good as the more expensive brand and are
terrific for storing everything from small craft pieces to
Christmas decorations. Last season, I stored my snowman fridge
magnets in a small Slide Seal bag to be sure that the pieces would
stay together and be easily found this year.

Marlene Found something
exciting at the dollar store? Got a beef with a dollar
store item? Do you have an easy decorating idea for a
craft? I love to hear from my readers!
Making elaborate Christmas crafts just isnít my thing. The spirit may be willing but the
hands are often all thumbs.
So Iím happy to putter away with my dollar store finds until I come up with something that tickles my fancy and then share them with you in the hopes that they will delight you, as well.
Anyway, we all have enough to do at this time of year, so thereís nothing wrong with having a lazy little Christmas when it comes to decorating.
Lazy Little Christmas for the full story.
I love candles. They seem particularly appropriate
during the holiday season, maybe because they mirror the warmth and glow we feel within ourselves at this time of the year.
So letís get our merry and bright on with these four illuminating ideas.

Here are a few Christmas dťcor ideas using glass vases as cloche stand-ins. You can use tall cylinder vases, as Iíve seen done in some decorating magazines but I like these shapely vases that I bought at a dollar store at one time or another for
$1 to $2 each.
Try different shapes and sizes of vases. As you'll see, even clear glass votive candle holders
can work. Itís a cheap, fun way to help decorate a mantle or tabletop for Christmas.
