Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Christmas Canon Rock

My Christmas Wish for all of my Family and Friends

My Christmas Wish For You

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too ..

How to brighten your whites

 Napkins, linens and even white socks can be whitened on the stove. Fill a pot with water and a few slices of fresh lemon, and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat; add linens and let soak for up to an hour then launder as usual. For extra brightening, spread them out in the sunlight to dry.

Crystal Snowflake made with Borax

Supplies needed:
  • Wide mouthed jar
  • 3 white pipe cleaners
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Boiling water (have an adult do this part)
  • Spoon
  • Borax (called 20 Mule Team Borax Laundry Booster - the product called Boraxo will NOT work)
  • Optional: blue food coloring
  • Make a giant snowflake frame from 3 white pipe cleaners and string. Twist the 3 pipe cleaners together in the center to make a 6-sided, spiky figure.
    Make sure this figure fits inside the wide-mouthed jar.
    Tie the string around the pipe cleaners to look like a snowflake shape. Trim the excess string.
    Tie a few inches of string to one of the pipe cleaners. Tie the other end of the string to a pencil, so that the snowflake will hang from the pencil and dangle inside the jar.
    Take the snowflake out of the jar.
    Pour boiling water into the jar.
    Add the 20 Mule Team Borax Laundry Booster to the hot water in the jar.
    Keep adding the Borax until you have a supersaturated solution (you will see undissolved Borax at the bottom of the jar). You'll have to add about 3 tablespoonfuls of the 20 Mule Team Borax Laundry Booster to each cup of hot water in the jar.
    Optional: Add a few drops of blue food coloring for a bluish snowflake.

          Hang the snowflake in the jar and wait at least overnight.
In the morning, your snowflake will be covered with beautiful crystals.
As the supersaturated solution cools, the borax comes out of solution (less of the borax can dissolve in cool water) and forms crystals on the pipe cleaners and string.

3 D Prim Star Ornament

Print out two copies of the template .
This will make one 3D star.
Fold the tab under both of the stars. Crease the interior lines of the stars so that the arms of the star puff up.
Put glue on the flaps and glue the two stars together . Each flap should be glued to the inside of the other star.
Glue a short loop of string or yarn to one arm of the star. Then you can cover with wrapping paper , fabric glitter , etc .

A big pet peeve of mine

I design graphics . I always purchase commercial use license for anything I use that I do not create . I also purchase images with license . I see templates all over ebay that are in copyright violation . How do they get away with this ??? I charge 7.99 a template , and mind you , I pay for my licensed images . Not cheap ! So at a fair price of 7.99 for my work , they sell templates that are in copyright violation , for $ 2 , 3 5 bucks and free shipping . ??? It costs 2.41 to ship a cd . 7.99 - 2.41 = 5.58 which is not profit ,
 as I have ebay and paypal fees . So what the heck am I doing wrong ??
