First Project of 2011 and Some Wedding Photos

Here is my first project for 2011, took me a while but I did it!!! I think I made it to full and one mistake was not wrapping the foam wreath with ribbon but live and learn:) I’m proud of it, never really crafted before this new blog, oh sure I did the samplers but that’s all I did and maybe painted a few things black. When I saw these though in blogland I really wanted to make one.100_3699
Now should I keep it here on the hutch? (BTW the computer in the corner will soon be out of there, Mr. K found a roll top computer desk on Craigslist for $200.00 but got him down to $170.00 and it’s in great condition to boot!) Also took out the snowflake dishes and put them done below after I threw out some fabric that I won’t be using, I guess I did a little organizing today too:) I’m vowing to live the motto of “If you haven’t used or worn it in a year, throw it out or donate”!
Or here above the couch? I had a Christmas wreath there and loved it. I did try to make a book wreath but it didn’t turn out to good, after trying this one though I’ll be giving it another try.
Now here are some pics of the wedding, my two granddaughters were flower girls and Jenn, the bride was so beautiful as was the wedding.

The back of their hair, sorry for the blur, guess you can tell I didn’t get a camera for Christmas:)
Samantha with my daughter Michele!
Sydney is the oldest granddaughter 9…her and I.

We had a wonderful time, we arrived there in Greensboro, North Carolina Dec. 30th and stayed until Jan. 2nd. I’ll share pics of our New Years Eve party soon. BTW the wedding was held on New Years Day and the reception was held at the Magnolia Home Plantation, beautiful place and I didn’t get one pic because I was having to good of time♥
I did get this though Samantha and my granddaughter Alex rockin!

Nice job! I like it on the hutch. However the beauty of it, is that YOU can move it from place to place.

Stephanie said...

Well you did a great job on your wreath. But I like it above the couch. It looks too heavy visually on the hutch. Beautiful wedding for sure! I saw your comment on freckled laundry and clicked over:)

Hi Rondell! How are ya? Your wreath turned out amazing! I can't believe it's your first. Love how full it is. It looks perfect in its place. I always forget to wrap the wreath part first, too. Ugh!
Your grand-daughters looked so cute! Being a flower girl is such a fun experience! Looks like you had fun! I'll be back to see pics of your visit to NC.

Take care! ~Michelle

I really like the wreath, it is so full! Which makes it look really professional. Funny you posted it is snowing in Dallas and is very cold! So my daughhter and I made a wreath for my mantel. Thanks for visiting my blog I have enjoyed yours too!

Hi Rondell,
Your wreath turned out awesome...Love the white and black contrast of the ribbon. You could probably change it to red for Valentine's...How cute would that be? I can't wait to start on my first project of the new year.

Hugs and Kisses,
