The trimmings.

Each year I bat my eyelashes and politely ask the tree cutters if I can please take some extra tree trimmings. This year the guy actually told me no because there were "nails and staples in the trimming bin." I was thinking about how I was going to win this guy over when he called another employee over to dig out some trimmings for me. Now my whole house smells like a Christmas tree.

That is an awesome idea - love it!

The design ideas that you post on here... they're great. Not complicated, easy to replicate and adapt (like how you changed up the letter cards), and always interesting.

Keep up the good work and look forward to more in the future :)
