Hello from Quebec city,

I just want to wish you a Merry X-Mas for 2017.

In the mean time, I want to share a quick (and cheap) idea we had for X-Mas tree decoration this year using (empty) Nespresso coffee caps.
No danger to break or damage the decoration as they can be replaced easily.

Hopefully, the company like the idea so much that they would provide us with tons of coffee (filled) caps.

Health and peace to everyone.

Back when we were getting live trees every year for Christmas I would cut a slice off the bottom of the tree before we discarded it. After it had completely dried I would slice a really thin slice, paint something on it with the date, then coat in verathane.
It mad some really nice ornaments that told you what year the tree was from. Cheap, but some of our more cherished decorations.
