Hello! Happy past the middle of December Christmas is coming closer! I hope that you aren't suffering from the hustle and bustle of the season but instead are enjoying it! I know that it can be hard though! I am just about done my shopping. I know what I am going to buy (well mostly Ariel is harder) and just have to go get it! It's the going to buy it that I dread! :>
I am making a few gifts this year though! And I have to say that I absolutely love it! I enjoy it so much more than shopping, and I really like shopping! We celebrate Chad's mother's birthday this past weekend and I made her gift! I saw on Pintrest wreaths made from yarn and felt flowers. I looked at LOTS of them and came up with my own! It was so fun to make!
I lucked out because on my way to buying the supplies at Michaels I stopped in at our dollarama and they had great chenille yarn in this off white color! For $1! :> I went with a jewel red, light grey and charcoal grey because my MIL's door is brown so it will stand out, and because it's winter colors so that it can be displayed all winter not just Christmas! :> The big red flower took the longest to make, about an hour! And while I made it I couldn't in vision it and really thought it was not going to turn out. I was so happy when it did! The pearls are leftover from a few months ago when I tried to make a ribbon and pearl necklace. So glad I remembered them because I feel that it's the perfect touch for the wreath! Chad's grandmother really liked the wreath too so I am working on one for her as a Christmas gift! I have to have it done by Sunday as we celebrate with her than!
I want to say thank you so much for all your sweet Birthday wishes last week! I had such a great day with friends and family! I used random.org to figure out who the winner of the giveaway was but can't figure out how to post it! The winner of the Hero Arts set Big Ticket is:
