Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and easy craft tutorials.

Every few years I like to change the look of my Christmas tree, but I don't like to buy all new ornaments. So, I'm always on the lookout for new ideas to change the looks of the Christmas balls that I already have on the tree or for other uses for the old Christmas balls.
