Quips and Quotes
"We do not earn or merit anything by taking refuge in God. Hiding in something makes no contribution to the hiding place. All it does is show that we regard ourselves as helpless and the hiding place as a place of rescue." John Piper

Tidy Tip Tuesday - Polyester Batting for Snow


Let it Snow!
If you've had trouble making a snow scene with polyester batting, try this trick:

When I set up this snowman scene, I had one large piece of batting that I laid down on top of white Christmas lights. I just couldn't get the effect I wanted. It looked hokey (is that a word?). And it was impossible to make "snow drifts".

So I put on my "thinking cap" the way Captain Kangaroo (now I'm dating myself) used to tell me to and it worked. I had the idea of cutting the batting into strips about 2 inches wide. I could then manipulate the strips anyway I wanted to make snow drifts. You can see the results. It was easy and looked just the way I had imagined. You can see the strips in the second photo.
