    Just because I have been feeling sad and upset for poor Deb (justasnak) all day I turned my mood around and did something to cheer me up.

    I made a reindeer mix to put in with Mikey's and my Christmas cards.
    I used oatmeal, glitter and chicken feed and mixed it together and typed a poem to put into the little bags:
    Sprinkle on the lawn at night
    the moon will make it sparkle bright
    as Santa's reindeer fly and roam
    this will guide them to your home.

    And i know that when people scatter this on their lawns, the birdies will have a lovely time and they will have Deb to thank!
    Hugs Deb.

    My daughter made some reindeer food at school two years ago. She just had to sprinkle it around the house for Santa. I like the poem!

    Oh, I was having a hard time thinking how animals could eat around glitter mixed with oat meal. :p Like styrofoam that chickens love, you might end up with glittery droppings! Better than ones with white styrofoam chunks. [​IMG]

    Sorry, the glitter is larger than the stuff we usually use, it is star shaped and nice colours and stands out more, but i see your point.
    Its also good for WEDDING confetti!!![​IMG]
