Save money by making your own (gorgeous) bows

I took a class at the Container Store in Atlanta and they gave us the best pamphlet with illustrated directions. I was delighted to find it on line just now!

There are lots of tutorials on You Tube as well if you prefer to watch as it’s actually done.

Another way we saved money this year was by buying one large roll of gift wrap from Costco in a basic silver snowflake pattern. It’s appropriate for everyone. I know in theory we’re supposed to save paper for next Christmas but it never looks good to me a full year later.

We’re powering up today with the $150 POA dues for the beach property. We haven’t gotten any news of special assessments so that category is flush.
