Well, I have to tell you there is nothing easy about crafting when you have a playful kitten and poodle around! Lexi was trying to help me cut the strips for the garland and Midnight had to wrap herself up in them.
Here is the next color she couldn't leave alone!
Somehow we finally got all of the strips cut and into piles and look who shows up again! It is a good thing she is so darn cute!......lol
Anyway, I have made two garlands so far (sorry for the picture I couldn't seem to get a good one in the window). They really are easy....the hardest part is getting all the strips cut or torn. Here is a tutorial I did if you are interested in making one.
Here is one just laid on the mantle. They look great anywhere. I have enough material that I can do more, and if I have time I will.
I also won a giveaway at Christina and Victoria's blog called As Time Goes By. They had three giveaways of yard sale items they had found that they thought people would enjoy. I was lucky enough to get drawn for the gorgeous tablecloth and napkins. Guess what the price was???? $1.00!!! Can you believe it? Anyway, look at all of the detail and there are no stains on the tablecloth at all and just a couple I found on the napkins. There are 11 napkins! That was some great thrifting!! Thank you so much for these beauties!
