      I am determined this year to have a great looking house for the holidays. I usually love to decorate, but the last few years have had the house to deal with, so NOW I can get to business.

      I love making wreaths, but I haven't been making them lately mostly cause of scrapping. It takes a minute to arrange and put together a wreath. SO, I was browsing Pinterest and saw a great link for a wreath here: [link]http://wonderwomancreations.blogspot.com/2010/11/musical-christmas-wreath-tutorial.html[/url].

      SO, I all the parts laying around and a day off….so……

      I added another layer of cones, Kel thought it would look fuller and better…..he was RIGHT. LOL

      ;D

      My office isn't done,.but I have a cute wreath!

      I would love to see your off the page projects for the holidays!

      What I love about this wreath is that you can trade out for a lot of holidays, I will post how I dress it up! Feel free to share here!

      Also, I linked this up on my blog with close ups, the tut link and what I altered as well as close ups of my RR layout….I also redid by blog design, please stop by!

          That's amazing! I have a TON of pics of wreaths that I have saved, but I have never made one. Yours looks amazing! I love how versatile it looks- good as a permanent decoration!

            Yeah, you can switch it, just have to be careful! The paper is pretty old. I have a few more I am going to do.

                  "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                              Ooh! I love it! I recently stumbled across my old orchestra/band books from high school, so I have tons of sheet music to play with here! Hmmm…..

                                Thrift stores can be a good source for old books and mags to use for ephemera. Also if you have some retired neighbors they often have tons of old books and mags, receipts, and cool stuff.

                                  Yeah, I got it at an estate-garage sale, a whole book of clarinet music. I have also scored poetry, illustrations, and botanical prints, all would be good for this, but it must be double sided.
