Glitz is a necessary component of the holiday season...honest! These cuties not only fit the bill, but they're great for those bits and scraps of fancy paper you've been hoarding since who-knows-when. Fresh out of paper mache' cones and don't have time to 'run' to the store...not a problem. Tried and true DIY rolled-paper cones do the job (plus, you'll have more size options).
As to my computer...it looks as though the problems HAVE been solved. On the other hand, this is the third time we've thought that. Since I am a determined optimist, my plan is to be posting on a daily basis.
Again, my thanks for your concern and support during this hassle.
