Green Tip Tuesday's are BACK *Holiday Edition*


I am definitely in the Christmas spirit since after Thanksgiving! I wanted to take the Christmas tree down from the Attic but hubby said I had to clean the living room first :( Which is true, I had been doing laundry all week and the girls were eating dinner and watch Netflix (even the 3 year old can navigate it), so sweeping was never ending. BUT NOW.... it is clean, just a few socks to pair up.

Anywho... so I had questions about why I hadn't been sharing any green tips, and I did share two while doing a TAG on my YouTube Channel, but I'm going to be sharing some "Oldies But Goodies" posts from previous years as well as sharing a new one each week! So TWO for the price of ONE.

Calling all Green readers!!! I would also love to showcase how you make your Christmas GREEN. It can be a green craft, home decorations, outdoor decorations or even a recipe! Ohhh, i'm so getting into the holiday spirit already and can't wait to read all of the Green Christmas Tip!

Just contact me at vetsmom_rgv(at)yahoo(dot)com with your name, blog, a picture if you wish and your tip. I will contact you to let you know if you will be featured. If your needing some extra readers send me an email with your tip!


Here is the first one... 

UNCONVENTIONAL ORNAMENTS



Sweater wrapped Ornaments! Aren't they fab?! I was researching online about ornaments made out of different materials and other ideas and I found these from  "A Nest for All". CLICK HERE to read the full post. You could either crochet them yourself or just cut and sew together. Other ideas are to use real fruit! Then everyone can choose one while they open presents. I also read about making Heirloom glass ornaments, those look fairly easy as well.  Other unconventional ornaments include:
  • Zombie/Day of the Dead
  • Chalkboard Balls
  • Jewlery Strands (no ornaments)
  • Glitter-Tastic Cardboard
  • Candy
  • Paper Chub Stars
  • Fried Churros

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
