Late again, but with things of interest

The new Corner Nest has really kept all of us running! It seems I'm over there at least every other day, moving things around, adding more items to replace the ones that have sold, etc. Meanwhile, my digi camera decided to go belly-up and stop working. (See, I have a valid excuse, ummm, reason, for being late this time!) My hubby has been working on this cute old chest and I'll try to keep pix posted of his process if I can get a suitable camera. The wonderful group of gals at Delphi's Prim & Rustic Forum has put together this tree of ornaments and I do hope you read about the cause: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130173223729 The proceeds from the auction will go to the hospital that so lovingly cared for Penny. Have any of you seen this book: http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/1574860941/ref=sib_dp_pt/103-2245715-7193401#reader-link It may be helpful for those of you who want to do a little something different with your Christmas ornaments. You might also want to check out these sites: http://www.allfreecrafts.com/christmas/index.shtml http://crafts.kaboose.com/recycle.html Both show various ways to recycle Christmas cards and paper; All Free Crafts has a little of everything, including things that can keep the kiddies busy and, of course, teaching them the values of recycling and doing things frugally. If you're unable to get your aluminum cans to the recycling center, here are some creative options: http://www.aluminouspublishing.com/ And while you're there, check this out: http://www.aluminouspublishing.com/recycled_art.html Here's hoping I'll have a functioning camera in a few days!
