I spent my two days off this week crafting away like crazy, mostly on holiday projects that I've seen posted on other blogs - on your blogs. I thank my lucky stars for you people. Without your inspiration, they're be little evidence around here that it's Christmas time (not that I'm bitter that it doesn't really snow here in Portland). Here's a bit of my attempt at imitation:
Not being much of a seamstress but loving the soft trees I first saw on Stepahnie's blog last year (and then on the blogs of Fanja and Liesl and, well, lots of bloggers), I used styrofoam cones (like the ones Andrea and Beki used in their gumdrop trees) and pinned scraps of fabric to them.
I had enough scraps left over to make these fabric balls, similar to ones I'd admired a while back on Sally's blog. Tomorrow... wreaths inspired by two of my favorite bloggers ever. And more Christmas craftiness to follow next week. Have a great weekend, all.
