We know we have to start getting our house ready for the holidays, including getting our all of our Christmas decorations and making the holidays as fun as possible for our entire family.

    That’s a cute idea. It’s also a good way to recycle items around the house.

    I’m thrilled that Poke’mon is back, and bigger than ever. We had a string of Poke’mon lights and used the plastic pokeballs that came with the toys from Burger King to decorate a little tree we have. We added plastic Poke’mon toys and had a Pikachu on top. That was over 17 years ago. The pokeball idea is cute, but I’d love to do the different types of balls, too.

    These are so pretty. I love making different ornaments. I learned how to make the beaded ornaments and ceramic. I am currently working on fabric balls. It’s so much fun learning how to create new treasures. Thanks for sharing.
