Well, it looks like the post for yesterday went through this morning. Let's hope I don't have any more problems uploading pictures.
I have almost finished the decorations except the Christmas Tree! The house is in a big mess. We decided to rearrange the pantry with all the dishes. Add that to the decorations in various stages and things are pretty much in disarray.
You can get a lot of strips out of a single sheet of paper. First cut it in half width wise by folding the top of the tall side to the bottom and cutting in half. Then cut strips out of each of the pieces. You can measure it but eyeballing is fast and just as nice...
Then put the next strip through the circle and tape it into a circle.
Continue until all the strips are gone.
