...I hold my fellow bloggers completely GUILTY!!

but what I like to think of as 'The Blog Bug' struck this weekend!! (You know, all those COOL things you read about on other blogs that just kind of float around in your head and suddenly SURFACE!!) - and The Only way to get rid of 'TBB' is to go with it!!
So, go with it I DID!
(glitters from Studio Stash... I've NEVER glittered before, but always pick them up at bag sales, 'cause somebody is always doing some cool project in Blogland with glitter that I may want to try someday...
A FRIDAY NIGHT spent glittering corks!?
Then SUNDAY spent rifling through the stashes...
wreath forms (picked up at sales, just because other bloggers are doing cool stuff with these!)
...and garlands (picked up at sales for the same reasons!)
...and tons of ornaments ('cause they are in GREAT DEMAND in Blogland)
(...and all of my tons of ornies are stored in stacks of vintage suitcases - of course!)
AND VOILA'
WITHOUT THE NEED FOR A TRIP
TO MICHAELS
OR
A.C. MOORE....
A 'Memory Wreath' for Mom & Dad this year, since they haven't put up a tree in numerous years and Mom has been kinda sentimental lately... I picked up ornies I can remember us having on the tree as kids, and that our grandparents had - plus added a copy of Mom's fav. cookie cutter
My version of a 'seaside' wreath... not done, want to add some seashells.
The Beat and Battered... all of these ornies were 1/2 step from the garbage - faded & scratched & Yuk beyond the point of anyone wanting them... perfect for a PORCH wreath that I don't care about!
A 'nod' to the Vine... for an older friend who adores her Wine and Camels - the animal - NOT Cigarettes!! (this is where glittering up the corks came into play!!)
Now, who could have possibly inspired me to glitter cookie cutters - Heidi? Shara?

Yeah - GLITTER! I noticed at dinner today that all six of us had glitter on us somewhere. I think it floats in the air in my house. That's not a bd thing.....

Your wreaths tuned out wonderful! You did good picking up that STUFF over the year. I have wreath making on the To-Do List for tomorrow. I sold one at the booth, so why not replace it with five more???:)

One week and counting.......

Shara~ YOU (and so many others in blogland) have a $$ making outlet and purpose for your 'hoards', as for me, well... not.so.much!!!

Wow, these are awesome! I'm impressed that you were able to make so many different wreathes with supplies you already had around. That's a bit inspiring. :) I feel the need to glitter coming on..

If I'm guilty of inspiring you to make such pretty things, then I don't feel one bit bad about it! LOL The wreaths are gorgeous!

These wreaths are FABULOUS! They put an instant smile on my face :) I am feeling inspired to try this (although I have a 100% failure rate when it comes to wreaths.) Should I try it anyway?? I'm pretty sure I have all the STUFF I need to make at least one, maybe two or three!
