Christmas Wreath

Brandon bought a wreath from a boy scout that came to our door last month. Isn’t that sweet? When it arrived though, I could see it needed a little help. It came with a smooshed plastic red bow and two pine cones.

Christmas Wreath (Before)

I ordered a set of vintage silver bells after Laura posted them on the SCOOP, and I figured they would do nicely in the center of the wreath.

Christmas Wreath (After)

I added a silver bow and the two pine cones back in and hung it from a silver ribbon. The whole thing could have used a little more fussing, but I fixed it up and had it hanging within fifteen minutes. I had to work quickly!

Trying to Sew a Slipcover

I had this idea a year and a half ago to slipcover my desk chair, and I’ve finally gotten around to trying it. Guess what… it’s way harder than I thought it would be! Of course, I am a novice seamstress at best, but I’ve had some sewing successes and I thought I could do this. Well, I made three pocket-like things that are fitting (sort of), but I have no idea how to connect them. I’ve been sitting on my chair like this for about a week now…

TRYING to make a new cover

There’s no shame in giving up on a crafty project, right? What about you guys? Have you had better success with this type of thing? Do tell.

Katamari Damacy Baby Costume

Katamari Baby!

She’s the Prince. And that costume too waaaaaay too long to make!

Katamari PrinceI think she looks pretty cute, even if you aren’t familiar with the Katamari games. Of course, if you’re confused you can visit the official Katamari website (fair warning: there is music), or consult the all-knowing Wikipedia. And then there’s always YouTube (na na na na na na na na na, Katamari Damacy).

Happy Halloween!
