Gift Wreaths!

And the wreathing continues.  This is probably one of my favorite things ever now.  I love how creative you can be with these!  Colors combinations, decorations, you name it.  I went into JoAnn Fabrics the other day and had to fight off buying Christmas stuff already because I just wanted to start making Christmas wreaths!  I'm giving myself until October and then it's on.

This one I made for my friend Brittany!  I was going to put more decorations on it but once I put the sign on there I liked it just the way it was.  I think anything else would be too busy. 

And this one I made for my Grammy.  She lives in an assisted living home so I think this will brighten up her hallway a little bit!
I absolutely fell in love with these flowers.  There are four larger mums that are orange and red and then eight small ones that are yellow and orange.  I saw the bouquets at AC Moore and I couldn't walk away.  I might actually make myself another one for my house!  And I'm definitely using those big ones to make hair clips, which is my next project haha

On a sidenote, I'm working my way through the e.l.f. palettes so I can properly review them.  I haven't had much opportunity to wear the night looks but I've tried one of the day looks and we'll just say I was less than thrilled.

So now I'm off to continue my education on Breaking Bad since I'm kind of working backwards after watching the first half of the last season.  I'm on season two now.  I figure by the time the second half of the last season comes around I'll be all ready!
