Christmas Wreaths

Okay, I know Christmas is over...but I finally have time to make some of the amazing projects I've seen in the last few months.  So today, I imitated a wreath I saw over at My Creative Time. (  I can use it to decorate next year, or maybe give it as a gift.  We will see next year!!!  But in the mean time, I sure had fun making it!  (Except for the nasty burn I got from the hot glue gun! hehehe)


Empty Plain Wreath (ON sale at Michaels for $1.99)
All Around Christmas Stamp Set (My Creative Time)
Glittered pine cones (Hobby Lobby)
Little Berries (Hobby Lobby)
Stickles (Michaels)

Okay, I managed to fit this project in even with company from Washington here at my home!!!

Cutting Vinyl with My Cricut

Hello Everybody!  It has been a while since I posted anything.  I was so busy looking at other people's ideas for the holidays, I didn't have time to make much or post anything.  Okay, so now that the Christmas Hustle and Bustle is over....I finally had time tonight to do something I've wanted to do for over a year now!!!  My Bestie, Melissa showed me vinyl she cut out (snowflakes) over a year ago.  I kept telling myself that I would make a saying to put on the wall in L.T. and I's craft room. :) (It used to be his play we play together....hehehehe)  I must admit, I did not come up with this saying on my own.  Rather I saw it on another blog and really thought it was PERFECT!  I am sooooo sorry to say, I can't remember who's blog it if it is your saying and you are reading this.....thank you sooo much for sharing such an inspirational saying!    So here it is on the wall!!!  The first time I ever cut out vinyl!
I also must admit, I'm not all that happy with the way it turned out.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the saying.  I just don't like how it turned out on my wall.  Any suggestions.....?  I am open and more than willing to re do it.
Happy New Year, my creative friends!
