Christmas Wreath

Saw a Christmas wreath on Alisa Burke's blog that we had to try.

This is our finished product.

Ours may not be as beautiful as hers but I think we did pretty well. Ruth, Abbe and Eian took most of the photos. (I wrapped the wreath with ribbon to cover any 'naked' spots. Also, used pipe cleaners to put the flowers and leaves on instead of hot glue.)

I had it on the front door but then I moved it to the door in the laundry room where I can see it every day. It makes me smile.

I still need to go get my big, live wreath for the front door before they sell out.

So, what have you made special for this year's holidays?


Just so you know.... Yes, I am STILL sick. Went to the doctor AGAIN today and she gave me a bunch of stuff to take and gave me a lecture on getting rest and taking enough fluids. I just want to get better so I can enjoy the holidays with my family!

Hopefully, the meds she gave me today will start kicking this illness's butt so I can go back to crafting, sewing, knitting, etc...... Really can't do much right now because this illness has my brain in a fog and makes me really tired if I try to do too much.

Sigh. Really tired of listening to my pathetic self cough and moan about being sick! Whatever this is, I hope all y'all don't get it!

Nana aka Cathy,
Thanks! Did the painting while Jason was at the firehouse - usually best - he tends to get worked up about the mess for some reason!!!! But none of the other messes around here bug him! Ha!
