Christmas is over, but don't toss out that old tree just yet! It's probably too late to be taking on this project, but it may give you a little inspiration to hang onto that old tree or garland a little longer for next year. I so desperately wanted to buy a new Christmas tree this year. I had visualized a beautiful, tall, full, fluffy, snow-sparkled tree making a statement in my living room corner. Turns out, our budget didn't allow--and honestly, that's okay. As I get older, I realize more and more that all of these material things aren't always worth the money. The "perfect" tree, gifts, lights, etc. won't actually fill your home with Christmas spirit. You, with your love and goodwill create the magic. The laughter of children certainly helps!
