Wishing I was in Maui, but dealing with being here

Tis the Season…………

to think I am crafty. I was watching Rachael Ray this morning and caught the crafting segment. The lady made making these little ornaments look very easy. I’ve been invited to a get together on the 21st with some lady friends and thought this would be a cute gift to bring everyone (I need 8). Off to Michael’s I went for supplies. I spent about $22.00 on stuff and about an hour of my time trying to find what I needed. Upon returning home I sat down to make the crafty little ornament.

BLAH!!!!! What was that woman thinking that a 7 year old could easily make this. Try getting the wire through the middle of the pom=pom! Then try twisting the ends to form a wreath without knocking one of the pom poms off!! And then try to get the ribbon on so it hangs nicely. I thought the glue I bought would work to keep the ribbon together.

It took about 90 minutes to make 3 of these and I have 5 more to make!!! What was I thinking!
