Time is up! It’s the day before Christmas, and I sure hope you all have finished all your holiday shopping. If you have not, I would not want to trade places with you. I have a feeling those stores are going to be crazy, and very congested. Hopefully you can just relax and spend sometime at home with your family and friends. If you have some spare time, and would like to do something creative then your in luck. Try creating this Martini Glass and Ornaments Centerpiece. Toast the holidays with a bright and blinged out centerpiece that will be the talk of the table. This would be a great addition to have at your Christmas dinner tomorrow.
