    "Colorado and Wyoming are America’s highest states, averaging 6,800 feet and 6,700 feet above sea level. Utah comes in third at 6,100 feet, New Mexico, Nevada, and Idaho each break 5,000 feet, and the rest of the field is hardly worth mentioning. At 3,400 feet, Montana is only half as high as Colorado, and Alaska, despite having the highest peaks, is even further down the list at 1,900 feet. Colorado has more fourteeners than all the other U.S. states combined, and more than all of Canada too. Colorado’s lowest point (3,315 feet along the Kansas border) is higher than the highest point in twenty other states. Rivers begin here and flow away to all the points of the compass. Colorado receives no rivers from another state (unless you count the Green River’s brief in and out from Utah). Wyoming’s Wind River Range is the only mountain in North America that supplies water to all three master streams of the American West: Missouri, Colorado, and Columbia rivers." Keith Meldahl Happy one week anniversary, you cuties.

Make Your Own Snow Globe.

PHOTO.jpgAlthough Christmastime isn’t solely about gifts, I know that in North America, they do play an integral role. Gift-giving can get incredibly expensive, incredibly fast. This only adds to a person’s stress level at Christmas. My solution? To make your own gifts! I’m not implying that you should make all of them, but there is usually a certain someone (or two) who would cherish a handmade rather than store-bought present.

IMG_2.jpgAll that you will need for this snow globe is:

A jar

Twine/ribbon/string

Some sort of lovely trinket/photograph

Sparkles

Water (optional)

IMG_3.jpgSo if your family is as big as mine, or even if it isn’t, or if you’d like to do something a little different for Secret Santa this year, why not make your own gift? (And then post a link in the ‘Hello Comments’ below!)

Next week I will have another Make Your Own … This time, for the food enthusiasts in your family!
