The summer of 2017 was pretty rough for me. I lost almost all of my flowering plant collection. Only five of them survived. But, on the other hand, my collection was somewhat running my life and it is nice to have only a few "high maintenance" plants to care for. Otherwise, we have quite a few "low maintenance" plants that make our house look wonderful.

Oh I can relate. For me it's that too many plants, too much work, besides, we are surrounded by all kinds of flowering and fruit trees all year round so I don't miss greenery at all.

Hi Patria,

Happy New Year to you. I am sorry that I have not been around much lately. I do stop in now and then though. Christmas time was very busy. One thing I have been doing is making Scandinavian Christmas Hearts. Here are some of them:

I made around 60 of them for gifts and decorating around the house.

I hope that 2019 is a good year for everyone!

Hi Mystery_girl,

Thank you! They were really fun to make, but time consuming. Each one takes between 20 minutes to 50 minutes, depending on how much time it takes to cut the strips. Each star is made from four strips of paper. Most of these were made from a kit where the strips were already cut, thus the 20 minutes. The very little ones were made from scraps from making the larger ones. Those took around 45 minutes to 50 minutes total time to make them.

And correction. Those are Scandinavian Christmas Stars. lol I made Christmas hearts too. lol

Hi Larry -

Thanks for sharing. Would this work with wrapping paper? It would be a fantastic way to recycle it and end up with something special too! :)

Hi Mystery Girl,

The paper for the stars need to be two sided. They could still be made into stars, but there would be white in weird places. You may try it though. Maybe it will work for you just fine.
