It's December?

How is is December already?  I'm about a week behind in my life?  We started putting up the decor yesterday and I pulled out this wreath that I made last year.  My hubby is not a fan, but I really, really love it.  I found the idea at Piccadilly Peddlers (her hubby thinks it's weird too).  I followed her instructions, except that I used upholstery tacks instead of brads. Pretty much if you can cut out circles and use a glue-gun you can make these.  I loved mine so much, I turned myself into a wreath making factory and actually ended up making one for both our moms (I did one in Valentine colors), and my boy's teachers.

  8. I know it is crazy that anyone would not find this wreath adorable. Hubby is not a fan of wreaths in general-he considers them "clutter", but he puts up with them for me. Weirdly, he is also not a fan of bar stools (same reason). Before we got married we discussed children, religion, politics, money, but I never thought to ask him his position on bar stools or wreaths.

  10. tell your hubby he is weird. How can he not love this? And I really, really think you should get loads of miniature barstools and make a wreath out of them, just for the stinkin' sake of it. I know I would. But then again, I am evil.
