I don't think that anyone can deny that there is a certain magic about Christmas. Everything has a new sparkle to it and we anticipate all the season brings. Thanksgiving is starting to get lost in the mix, Christmas decorations are out before Halloween is over and we all rush to fulfill our holiday obligations. My Grandma always hosts Thanksgiving and I was trying to come up with a nice gift for her to start off the season and to let her know how much we appreciate all the effort she goes to during the holidays. I always buy the clear glass ball ornaments and use them for various projects and gifts. This year I suspended pictures of Clayton sledding in the snow and filled the bottom with a mixture of large and small flake snow, diamond dust (glitter), and mica snow. It is like a sweet little time capsule to hang on the tree. The snow even gives the picture a slight shimmer and it only took about 10 minutes to put together. Try to be a little creative this year when you send or give out those holiday pictures and turn them into something that will be a holiday treasure for years to come.
