Christmas Quotes..

Christmas renews our youth by stirring our wonder. The capacity for wonder has been called our most pregnant human faculty, for in it are born our art, our science, our religion.
~Ralph Stockman

Mexican Paper Flowers...

I like to decorate my tree with Mexican Paper Flowers, but every year I think maybe not this year. Paper flowers don't save well from year to year. You can save them. When I used to do a crepe-paper flower tree (which was just insanity) the flowers were good for about 3 years in a row. I just love the way it looks when it's finished I guess, because I can't stop myself even though making the flowers has ceased to be fun and I find myself in envy of people who get their decorations out of a box (what a great idea!). We tend to be a bit Christmas crazy around here. Well, I still need to make the orange flowers and when I get them up.. I'll show you.
