Chrismas Crafting

I know, I've been so neglectful this week, but I had a legitimate reason. My poor little Lola has been battling a bad tooth and we finally had to take her to the vet. Needless to say, OMP has been comforting Lola and me for the past week. Not a fun job. So, forgive me for being a little lost but Lola is doing better, I'm wonderful and OMP is exhausted. Now then....let's get to crafting!

Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I completely go overboard with decorating, baking and spreading cheer. This year, I decided to add an extra special element. PINK AND GLITTER!

My first project was an ornament wreath that I had been dying to make for years. My good friend, Tara, gave me a bag of pink ornaments and I finally broke down and made that wreath.

I wasn't satisfied with just a sparkly pink wreath. I decided to make some bottle brush trees. I dyed them and killed them with glitter.

Putting them both together with my pink tree....HEAVEN!

I couldn't just stop there and decided to make garland out of recycled ornaments. Check out the video!

Finally, the tree with the garland I made last year.

Yep, the Christmas crafting bomb pretty much exploded at Casa de Pedersen and I couldn't be happier.

Kisses and licks from my furry family to yours.
