About Verizon Internet
Verizon Communications is a global communications company that was formed on June 30, 2000, from a merger of Bell Atlantic Corporation and GTE Corporation. Through its Bell Atlantic origin, Verizon can trace its lineage all the way back to Alexander Graham Bell, who invented the telephone in 1876. Today, Verizon is a leader in wireless communications, having made $110 billion investment in network infrastructure, spectrum purchases and previous mergers and acquisitions of Alltel, MCI, AOL and Yahoo. Known for its mobile phone service with 4G and 5G network coverage available throughout the U.S., Verizon also offers TV and Internet service packages in the northeastern U.S.

Before you know it, it will be time to pull the Christmas tree down from the attic and start adding holiday cheer to anything that doesn’t move. Over the next couple of weeks, I am going to be sharing some ornament ideas that are easy and inexpensive to make. Today I am joining some other bloggers for a DIY ornament hop! I am sharing these darling mini letter board ornaments!
This has never happened to me before, but I had a dream that I made these letter board ornaments 2 months ago. I woke up and thought, “I should really make them!” Luckily I wrote it down on a scrap paper by my bed so I remembered it later even after the hazy dream fog cleared. I am so happy with how these mini letter board ornaments turned out!

2×3 Frames or 3/4″ trim to build frames
I had some 2×3 frames in my Amazon cart but then decided to make some. I have an insane amount of scrap wood and I am on a mission to use it up. I grabbed some 3/4″ trim and cut it to make my own 2×3 frames. I used glue to hold them together.
You can buy felt sheets for really cheap (sometimes even per sheet) at craft stores and Walmart. I only used one and a little bit of the second to make 5 of these ornaments.
Measure the inside width of the frame and then cut a strip of felt that size. Luckily, the length of the felt sheet which is 12″, was the right amount needed to create the letterboard.
You will fold and glue the felt onto the backing of the frame. Since I made mine, I cut out some cardboard that would fit inside the frame. I tried a variety of ways to glue the folded felt (folded accordion style) to the cardboard. The easiest way I found was the fold three times and then glue them on. Any more than that and it would pop up and come unfolded.
Here is my first one compared to my third one. The first one, I had leftover felt I had to cut off because I did the folds too big and they were too loose.
Once they were all glued down to the cardboard backing, I inserted them into the frames that I had stained. I glued some string to the back so I could hand them up.
Add the tiny 1/4″ letters to create whatever saying you want. I went with song titles that had a SNOW theme. I had plenty of letters left over in case I want to change that from year to year.
I think these mini letter board ornaments are perfect for a kids tree! My teens think they are great 🙂

Maybe you don’t have a garden of your own, or just want to spice up your porch or patio with some potted greenery. Container gardening is a great option to add some fresh plant life to your home or office decor.
Before you get started though, you’ll want to make sure your plants make good housemates and that they have everything they need to thrive in whatever container you choose. That’s where the folks at Bay Area Landscape Nursery come in, and they stopped by Coastal Living to show us the Do’s and Don’ts of container gardening.

I always think that the landscape has a sense of movement, shape and form that makes me realize good gardening is like musical composition. This is most apparent in the fall, when sound, the final connection to music, comes into its own as a part of the composition. Music and gardening are wildly related art forms – each dependent on time, each filled with crescendos and movements slow and fast, loud and soft to convey their magic.
This fall, on morning hikes with Fred, as we continue to care for my mother after her hip surgery, the sounds emanating from the baroque fall landscape call to mind the seasonal masterwork of Vivaldi – from the rustle of shimmering leaves above our heads to the percussive crunch of fallen leaves beneath Fred’s padded toes. The season comes alive, and the colors that move forward in conjunction with the sounds remind me of the visions that fill one’s head while listening to music with one’s eyes closed. Somber browns and vivid reds give way to soft gold and purple tones, each taking its moment and enriching the composition as a whole, and linking with the sound of the season. The breeze takes on the sounds of the wind section of an orchestra, ranging from the soft sounds of a flute to the forceful roar of a trumpet.
The colors, too, seem to have a soundscape all their own, with the shimmering pink tones of the invasive burning bush starting the season like the sound of a cymbal being lightly brushed, followed by a full-on clash that comes on as the softer tones turn vermilion in the later part of the season. I love this foliage as it transforms from mellow to strident, but I also expect to hear from a particular reader who will reach out to tell me that this plant is taking over and needs to be removed from our gardens and landscape. The reds of sumac in fall make a fine substitute for this foreign invader, if you happen to heed this advice, but I must say that, in these few weeks, burning bush reminds me of a misbehaving child that is doing something charming and horrible at the same time. For a brief moment I am taken in by it, before, that is, I begin to get concerned as its fruits set seeds that will cause it to take over more of the forest in the years ahead.
The transitions of other leaves move temporally and musically as well. Scarlet oaks turn soft brown-green days before taking on cabernet tones, and some leaves such as that of the double-file viburnum appear to move forward unchanged, until frost turns their dark green leaves the deepest of purples. Each season I promise myself that I will catalog and calendarize the transmogrifying colors, pattern and timing of these changes, memorializing them in some manner so that I can hum their tune in months to come, only to find myself so caught up in the glory of the music and that season’s performance of this third movement, that it is already over before I reach for pen and paper.
For one brief moment, I realize that such note taking is neurotic and unnecessary, and some of the best music can be performed simply by letting nature take its course.
A gardener grows through observation, experimentation, and learning from the failures, triumphs, and hard work of oneself and others. In this sense, all gardeners are self-taught, while at the same time intrinsically connected to a tradition and a community that finds satisfaction through working the soil and sharing their experiences with one another. This column explores those relationships and how we learn about the world around us from plants and our fellow gardeners.
