Crafting with Confidence

Today I visited Christina's blog (like I do everyday), and of course she had created another fabulous piece. When I clicked the link to the pattern, I was directed to Simply Beans. I don't know about you but when I come across another crafters blog, I look around. Does that make me creepy??? I would hope not. Anyway...while looking at previous post, I realized that the owner has a daughter about the same age as Z. The thing that caught my attention was all of the crafting her daughter was working on. You see Z has shown a high interest in Christmas this year. This past weekend while going to the grocery store, she said to me, in her little three year old whining voice "see everyone has a tree except for us. that's not fair". My sister looked at me and said "she knows what except means?" LOL. My baby is growing up fast.

Sorry let me get back to my reason for blogging tonight. So while at Simply Beans, I noticed that they had made an Ornament Wreath. After reading the post, I decided that Z could do that and it was something that I wouldn't go crazy trying to make it perfect - LOL. So, I did some research (must stay on budget) and decided we would go out to get the supplies tonight. Walmart it was. I did some calculations to see how many packages of ornaments we would need. Of course, this meant nothing once in the store. I really need help sticking to my budget. SMH. So here's what we brought and yes, I let her pick the colors.

You think I over did it??? LOL. I'll post pictures when we make our wreaths...

Keep crafting.

Looks like you're going to have a ton of fun making that wreath! I also go snooping on links, heehee. That's why they're linky!
