This is my fourth year running Christmas classes throughout the year and they are surprisingly popular.
We make 10 cards in a stamp a stack fashion then end the day with something different to cards. This time we are making a cotton reel wreath.
I made these before - a couple of years ago but used craft wire - this ended up buckling to more of an egg shape than a wreath so I have been on task to find thicker, stronger wire. That found the task was then to find the right tools to cut and bend it with - thanfully a brief fling with jewellry making and my passion for keeping all tools mean't it was not as hard as I thought.
'Tis a fiddly project for sure but should take no longer than an hour and will be a lovely decoration as a gift or for ones own home.
I love the papers but adore that stripey ribbon!
Hope you have all had a fabulous weekend. I have really enjoyed having my family home. I have indulged in Mum tasks and loved every minute. Its got to last me until November as my youngest son heads off to America in 2 weeks time to begin an awesome adventure as part of a new band onboard a cruise ship. I am excited for him and so proud of all he has achieved.
If pride is a sin I am afraid I sin everyday - my kids make me proud as they are all amazing young people, kind, talented and brave.
Enjoy the bank holiday tomorrow folks and thans for stopping by x
