Heart Wreaths and Fun in the Mail

The other day my package from Amanda arrived, full of the cupcake kitsch I ordered. It was so fun!! I love these little pakages and can't wait to get more. They sell out really fast, but I was lucky and managed to get one. The clincher for purchasing were the little gnome guys. I love them! And knowing my affinity for gnome culture, Amanda threw in an extra! I think his friends are happy he got to come with them. Thanks, dear!


On Thursday (yes the day he was sick) my darling husband put up 5 shelves in my craft room. 5! On his sick day! I think I won the nice husband lottery. So now I have a lovely craft room with more room to put stuff, but it is amazing how much stuff I still have!! I thought getting the shelves up would greatly reduce the clutter in there, but not so much... My name is Claire and I am a craft supply junkie.

Since I have a craft supply overflow I naturally had to make something, right? Right. So I busted out the glue gun and made some heart wreaths, of which I am quite proud. They really take what feels like forever to make, but I am soooo in love with them! I am going to add some glitter to the backs of them so that they are sparkly and fun from all sides and hang them in our windows.



I have also been thinking of opening an Etsy shop (me and everyone else, right?) and eventually a website, so there will be some on there soon. I'm thinking I can have the shop up and appropriately full of goodies by February 1, that way they might be available in time for Valentine's day. I'll keep everyone posted on my progress. Yup. I did win the husband lottery. Look at what he just handed me!

Oh girl.. you have no idea what clutter is... I can definitely go to crafter's anonymous... I should take a picture of my spare bedroom. If I did that and posted it everyone would think I was a HUGE sloth! I have got to get it under control and tame the beast!

Love those hearts, they are too cute.

Heh, I was about to make some of these button heart wreaths myself this week! (But button stuff does take forever.)
