This Holiday Season: Preserve Heritage

  It’s that time of year! Writing Christmas cards always invokes a little nostalgia. I treasure the art of writing letters and cards. Emails might be the green way to send season greetings, but you can feel satisfied in knowing that by purchasing The Cayman Islands National Trust’s Christmas Greeting Cards, you have helped the environment. Proceeds benefit The National Trust, helping them with their environmental programs and campaigns. This year the design takes us back to Christmas Past, old Fort George in Christmas Lights. The 2014 card was designed by local 19 year old artist Raidez Perez. Her stunning artwork depicts peaceful times at the newly renovated Fort George. Signed, sealed and delivered.

Follow the directions for some transfer paper, with a sticky adhesive.  Voila! Glitter.   An easy way to repurpose and reuse pine cones for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, is to sprinkle some glitter on to add a little sparkle. The pine cones were placed in a glass jar, for display and then glitter was added.  After the holidays, the glitter will be easy to pour out and store for future use. Glow. I have fallen in love with LED lights, battery operated style! The …
