Christmas Goodies!

Hey Everybody!!  I can't believe I made it back to my blog!  It had been so long since I had logged on that I couldn't find it!  But TaDa!!  I found it. lol.  
I can't believe the Christmas Season is here again already!  I have been hard at work finishing up some projects! Today I have a curly paper wreathe that Shellyb140 (on youtube) showed how to make.  Hers are so stinking cute I had to try on. I will probably make a few more! But here is mine. I used some old Stampin Up paper that came in a scrapbook kit.  I also used some odds and ends that I had stashed away in my Christmas decorations.They are so easy to make and they don't take long at all. This was done in one evening. You just cut 1/2" strips from 12x12" patterned paper, curl them like you would curling ribbon and use stick pins with the tiny heads on them to poke through the paper and into the hard green styrofoam wreath.  Not the white wreathes that crumble when you touch them, but you want to use the green hard ones (in the same aisle at the craft store). Really there is no rhyme or reason to this, I just poke away! And I love how it turned out. I have it hanging to the left of my dining room window. I have to make another for the right side lol!!  Anyway thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions, please ask away!!  Take care!!! Hugs, Rachel
