Crafty Sh-mafty


I have these secret ambitions that pop up once in a while to be the cute-crafty housewife. You know, like sew a cute dress for Sophie or make all sorts of things from the Makeitandloveit site. Luckily they only come in spurts.

I saw this wreath on Nannygoat, and I knew I had to have it. It was so cute. I needed this. I followed her instructions of buying my ornaments at the dollar store, and bought various sizes and textures. The wreath was so easy to make, everyone should have one. (Now I just need to work on my bow making skills.)

Merry Christmas!

Look at you! That is really cute. I love it and I want to make one now, but you reminded me that I am behind (okay, Waaaaay behind) on my sewing and I can't start another project with a clear conscience. But seriously, your wreath is adorable!

Alicia! this is way cool and looks great..good job :) I will definitely have to make one for myself, since I have absolutely no christmas decor. Just wanted to thank you guys again for the camera..we love it and I am slowly learning more and more how to use it on my own :) it's really fun! I also just got the package you sent today and wanted to let u know it got here safe haha thanks!! have a great holiday month. take care

I love it! That is one great idea. I'm going to have to look at that website and make one for myself. I already have two wreaths though...three can't hurt can it?

Your wreath is very cute. See Aunt Leslie, she made me a beautiful bow while I was there.
How is Sophie's hand? G-ma

I miss doing crafts with you... I wish we could have made that wreath together!! It is sooo adorable. I think I have to have one too! We'll see what Ty thinks... I Hope you guys are doing well and enjoying the Christmas season. I love this time of year.

I can see why you "needed" it. I may just have to try it out. If you find something at the dollar store that can make you happy, well our husbands can't complain about that, right? I will have to check out those websites too.

That is SUCH a cute wreath!! I might just have to make one...:) I'm sorry about Sophie's hand! Poor little thing! I hope it's on the mend!

Brittany said...

Wow, I want one! What are the chances of me paying you to make me one? He he. Just kidding. It's adorable though! I can't believe how stinking bug Sophie is getting. She's just too cute.
