Please don't make me go.......

to work tomorrow! I have two more days to work until the first of the year and I don't want to!!! I would rather finish setting up my new scrap space. I have been in the process of moving all my scrap supplies up stairs. I took over one of the spare rooms, I should take a photo of the before and after! It is so unorganized and I can't wait to get everything in it's new home!!!
Jim and I went over to visit Teresa, Morgan, and Al yesterday and had an absolute blast! Why do we wait so long to visit them? Thanks for a great time guys!

Cutest little evergreens...

Have you ever made these?
They are super quick, easy, and inexpensive!
and some kind of strong adhesive or a hot glue gun
Step 1
For large Christmas trees, use an adjustable circle cutter to make 2-, 3-, 4-, 5-, and 6-inch-diameter circles from green card stock (for small trees, omit the 6-inch circle).
Step 2
Fold each circle in half 4 times with a bone folder. While circles are folded, snip off the tip of each piece, forming a very small hole in center. See photo below, please ignore the paper clip on fold #4, was just trying to hold it together to get a photo of correct fold.
Step 3
Place smallest circle on the pointed end of a wooden skewer (I used 12-inch skewers), letting the tip poke through the hole in circle. With a hot-glue gun, dab underside of circle, where paper and skewer meet. Hold for 10 seconds to secure.
Step 4 Working 1 at a time from smallest circle to largest, slide remaining circles onto skewer; secure with glue.
Insert bottom of skewer into a spool; remove, and cut skewer to desired height (I cut mine to 6, 9, and 10 inches), keeping in mind that the spool should be visible beneath the standing tree. Return skewer to spool; secure with glue. Add a dot of glue to top of skewer, and attach a gold bead or make a star like I did below!
I was inspired by Martha Stewart!
