my sister rebecca and our maid of honor on the left and steve on the right. : )
i am excited to see him marry his little lady terri. steve is one of the nicest guys i have ever met in my life (my husband chooses good people, what can i say?). he is getting married in indiana this weekend, which is where my in-laws live so we will also be visiting and staying with them. part of me dreads the car ride up there, but the other part is excited to go. plus i get to see our friends amanda and phil too! what a fun weekend!! all that will most likely make up for the 10 hour drive there and back.
here is a teeny project i did this week. i bought fur to fix my office chair. i will show that project soon, but for some reason i am just not ready to show it yet. i feel like i haven't taken a good picture of it yet.. i don't know. "blah blah, jess" is what you're saying now, right? well i paid about $8 for half a yard and i have a tonnnnn left over. so i am thinking up ways i want to use the rest, and here is one way i used just a little bit of it yesterday.
i knew i wanted a wreath, but i wanted it small and free. my budget for projects this month is basically zero, so i had to figure out how to make this for free.
enter cardboard box.
we had old christmas boxes in the closet. i used frisbees to trace the circle. no i did not trust my abilities to draw a good circle, ok?
my traced circles. i'm a good tracer, aren't i? : )
then i cut the sides off the box to make it easier to cut the circle out.
the back looks pretty ugly on mine, but i didn't care so much about the back of it. i mean, it's hanging against something, right?
of course it's good to have a fur specialist around in case you run into trouble... or need some one to lay on the fur to keep it from getting up and running away.
i left an empty space for a bow. i glued the ribbon down first, then i tied it in a bow... just for good measure. i added a loop onto the back, then i had the task of figuring out where this little baby should go. it ended up on the refrigerator as you can see. you know, as all elementary school crafts do : )
now just how to keep it from getting all dirty.. i have terrible images of spaghetti sauce splatter and red raspberry preserves attacking my pretty little white fur wreath...
