Made in the U.S.A. – ornament hooks

2012-12-20 08 (copy).18.50

We needed ornament hooks in December. It was so disappointing when I went to Wal-Mart and all of the ones there were made in… you guessed it: China.

So I thought I’d check out the paper clips and Bingo! Made in the U.S.A.

It just took a little bending and now I have good, strong, American made ornament hooks.

When I packed away the tree decorations this month, I put the hooks in the same can with them.

Next Christmas, I’ll know where they are.

Made in the U.S.A. – Christmas Cards

Christmas Cards 2012-5

This is a good time to buy Christmas cards for next year. I bought several boxes at Wal-Mart yesterday.

They’ll probably be reduced even further, but I wanted to choose mine while there was still a good selection.

I chose primarily Religious ones, because Christmas without Jesus is rather hollow.

Fantus and Paper Magic Group cards were both made in the U.S.A.

Some of them are a bit plain, so I plan to use Stickles (another made in the U.S. product) or some glitter and glue to gussy them up.
