Gotta find something to do up here in Alaska

I was thinking about an alternative use for those little plastic balls that have toys in them that you get out of the machines at the grocery store. It would be cool to put small presents in them and put them in a stocking or even cooler, poke a hole in the top and attach a paper clip and hang them from the tree. If you had a lot of small gifts to give to your family you could hide them in the tree and they'd have to try and find them.

it's out of focus, but you get the idea...

yeah, I use those all the time.  I like using the little ones for earrings, and if it has a matching necklace, those go in the big ones!

i think these would make adorable tiny little snowglobes. i have some saved for exactly that, but haven't gotten around to actually making any yet.

that's a really cool idea, snowglobes, but do they balance very well upside down?

the ones i have are quite steady when sitting on the lid (so the dome is the "top").

i wish i had the stuff i need to make some snowglobes NOW, in honor of the big storm we're just digging out from under...i know i need glycerine to add to the water, and of course, i don't have any. i've also read you can use clear corn syrup instead, but naturally, i don't have any of that either. i wonder what else i could use...?

you could use baby oil or clear cooking oil.
