I totally made them this year with my daughter only because the Trader Joe's bag had a tutorial - not that I needed one. :)

trader joes bags have strips you can cut on the sides of their bags! i have been meaning to make my chain! i think i will put it in the guest room...so it doesn't feel left out of the christmas cheer.

So I just have to tell you that my roomate went all out and our whole dorm room was decorated with white and rainbow paper chains! ha I wish I could show you a picture. It was a really nice decoration though and totally appropriate for the season :)

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
