Christmas Hint #10 -- Boxes, Boxes, Boxes


Start saving small and good quality boxes. It’s such a pain when you want to wrap a gift but can’t find the right size box, or you need to mail a package, but the box you have is too flimsy. My 2 favorite companies for boxes are Avon and Schwann’s. Also look around when you’re shopping for nice boxes that will just be discarded by the store.

If you have the time and patience, covering boxes can be a fun craft and add a special touch to any gift. My sister made me a Christmas tree ornament one year. It was beautiful, with beads and velvet ribbon, but just as beautiful was the homemade box she put it in.

Here are some handmade or hand-decorated boxes from OLA.

Best Menopause Question Ever

Q: How many MENOPAUSAL women does it take to change a light bulb?

Woman's Answer: One!
ONLY ONE! !!! And do you know WHY?
Because no one else in this
house knows HOW to change a light bulb!
They don't even know that the bulb is BURNED OUT!!
They would sit in the dark for THREE DAYS before they figured it out.
And, once they figured it out, they wouldn't be able to find the stupid
light bulbs despite the fact that they've been in the SAME CABINET for the past 17 YEARS!
But if they did, by some miracle of God, actually find them, 2 DAYS LATER, the chair they dragged in from the other room to stand on to change the STUPID light bulb would STILL BE IN THE SAME SPOT!!!!! AND UNDERNEATH IT WOULD BE THE WRAPPER THE FREAKING LIGHT BULBS CAME IN!!! BECAUSE NO ONE EVER PICKS UP OR CARRIES OUT THE GARBAGE!!!! IT'S A WONDER WE HAVEN'T ALL SUFFOCATED FROM THE PILES OF GARBAGE THAT ARE A FOOT DEEP THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE HOUSE!!
IT WOULD TAKE AN ARMY TO CLEAN THIS PLACE! AND
DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON WHO CHANGES THE
TOILET PAPER ROLL !!
I'm sorry. What was the question?

OK,  when you get cooled off....splash cool water on your face ....leave your husband a BIG note that you really like these canisters......
