Whew!!!! I've had a busy day


My day started out as most days do, by going to work. I knew however, that I would be skipping out a bit early to go to a sale in a nearby town. I'll write about that tomorrow, that sale needs a blog entry of it's own. All I can say is... WOW! At this sale I met a fellow blogger and we headed back to my town to a shop called Ethel's (more about that tomorrow as well). Then from Ethel's we hit the Goodwill, where my friend (to be named tomorrow) hit the jackpot. Then back to my house, and by now it's 4:30. I knew I had a class at 6:00 so it was a quick supper and back in the car, and across town (only 20 mins) to my class. The class is my ornament project #2. Four of us met at a local florist shop called "The Flower Girl", to learn how to make these wonderful wreaths.

Creator, Allison, uses vintage ornaments and makes the wonderful, fun wreaths

These 3 belong to the owner, Allison, and are for sale.

We were to bring our own vintage ornaments and Allison, patiently guided us through the process. She's in the orange below.

It was a fun couple of hours, designing, hot gluing, and admiring each other's creations. We all started out with the same basic wreath, Allison provided the ribbon and glue, and some other fun vintage items around her shop, as well as the instruction and moral support. I think we all ended up with some really fun and special wreaths.

Allison's advise "It's not done, till it's over done."

Allison was a real good teacher. And we all had lots of fun, and got into the Christmas Spirit, eating great food, listening to Christmas music, and gluing, gluing, gluing. Thanks Allison for hosting this fun event. And to my fellow wreath creators, Jodi, Starla and Donna, it was fun.

BTW-Locals-Allison is having an open house tomorrow.
Her shop is just off University, just past the DPS office. Look to the left, you'll see a hair salon, and her shop is a little shed-like building next to it. It's a cute little store, and is bigger on the inside than on the outside. Sorry I don't have the exact address. Stop by, look at her goodies, have some food, and tell her I sent you.
