How are you celebrating New Year’s Eve this year?  If you’re having a party (and you don’t mind the extra vacuuming), you might want to hand out these cute countdown confetti favors by Carolyn at Carolyn’s Homework.  (Isn’t it convenient that matches come in packs of 10?)  If you’re a paper crafter and you made your own cards and gift tags this holiday season, you probably have plenty of confetti left as a by-product; if not, it’s a great mindless project for watching television.  Or you can put the kids to work!  [how to make New Year’s countdown confetti favors]
