3 DIY Christmas Trees

Posted by on Dec 13, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I have been looking for some simple and elegant but frugal decor for my hall table. As always, the best way to get something you want, is to DIY. For the table decor, I decided to make some golden mini Christmas trees. They are really easy to make and give your house some Christmas spirit. Color combinations for these DIY Christmas trees are endless. Just find the ones that go with your overall decor. In general, the materials you need for the DIY Christmas trees: Cone bases. The cheapest way to have a cone base, is to make it yourself. Use cereal boxes (the graphics on the inside of the cone), cardboard or poster boards. The advantage of DIY cone bases is that you can choose the exact size you want. If you prefer to buy them, different cone bases (styrofoam,...

How to Keep Santa on a Budget

Posted by on Dec 12, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

These tips will help you keep holiday spending under control. Well, duh. Hard to believe anyone needed a study to figure that out. This year has been particularly stressful because of the abbreviated three-week period between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I’m getting a bit anxious because two of my three children still have not checked in with their Christmas lists. Yes, I still ask my grown kids for wish lists. I’ve always thought lists are an effective holiday budgeting tool for the whole family. They help stressed-out parents stay organized and on task; they help kids learn to set priorities; and they help everyone keep from overspending. (And now that my kids are older and can include Web links to some of the things on their wish lists, it makes shopping a whole lot easier.) Americans seem to need all the...

The more I read about it, the more I want to go. Avoriaz was built in the 1960s—the brainchild of Olympic downhill gold medalist (and local) Jean Vuarnet, who teamed up with a developer and brought on a trio of newbie architects—Jacques Labro, Jena Jacques Orzoni and Jean-Marc Roques—to create a somewhat mysterious, fantasy-inspired getaway nestled in the hills outside the town of Morzine.   …read...
