Have you every made your own Christmas decorations?
As a child I used to make paper chains. I haven't seen those kits around for a while but I am probably not looking either! My own children used to make decorations, especially when they lived in England, where it seemed that for a whole term they did nothing but prepare for Christmas. I've got them all in boxes and every year they come out as a lovely reminder of how much things change over 18 years.
I was looking up Epsom Salt and Christmas on the interwebbythingy and thought these snow globes were quite a sweet and simply way of brightening up some old baubles. If you make some, please send me a photo: email@example.com
