Wreath Phase.......Phase 2

Liam and I were at Michaels craft store when we came upon a magical isle. It was the isle of glittery Christmas decorations. Our eyes became wide as we took in all the tiny rays of light shinning from every tiny gorgeous decoration. As we played glitter fairy and shook the items over our heads to create a glitter shower an idea came to me. A glitter wreath of course. A wreath that contained all the bright Christmas jewel tones and all the glitter my heart could desire. So we started loading he cart with the most beautiful pieces we could find. Flowers, tiny presents, sugared fruit, three birds (one for each boy), Glistening berries, shimmery snow flakes, sparkling pine cones and pomegranates. We got some glittery gold paint and enough hot glue gun sticks to air tight seal my whole house. After a bit of time and covering my house in glitter (that I’m sure I will be finding for years) I finished it. I then covered it in a clear lacquer spray to keep it from shedding glitter everywhere. The pictures don’t do it justice; you really have to see it in person to take in all it’s glitter-tastic-ness. Because of its very colorful, whimsical look I’m going to call it Glitter-Tasia. hahahah

That is glitter-iffic! You know, I think I still might have that wreath you gave me one year. Remember? It was the wreath made from cranberries and you gave it to me in a hat box. I loved that wreath and the hat box.
I am glad you are starting this new blog. I am sure I will get lots of inspiration from it.
