Cinny do!  I love reading blogs and getting inspired, getting new ideas, and because I am nosy and want to know what you are up to!  You never cease to amaze me with your creativity. 

Yesterday, I saw a post on showing a wreath made from a coiled pipe cleaner.   I had to stop at Michaels to get some candy canes to finish my snowmen, so while I was there I bought some pipe cleaners and embellishments for the holiday.  The candy canes I bought for the snowmen to use for arms.

Wrap a pipe cleaner around a pencil tightly and then stretch it out a bit (each wreath takes 2).  I then coiled the ends into each other to form the wreath.  Add some embellishments and a bit of ribbon and you are in business.  Minutes of time and you have an heirloom. 

Next, I was onto a felted wool and button ring I saw.  As you know, I have a plethora of felted wool and buttons.

Cut the felted wool, blanket stitch it together and then sew on the button.  This one was a button that I found thrifting yesterday.  Isn’t it cool!  You can make them a bit smaller as they stretch a bit and depending on how much you wear it might get too big if you make it to size.  Cute, original, and fun! 

Lastly, I finished (a few days ago) my Christmas fabric postcard for my 1 :1 swap with Kate.  Since I believe she checks my blog, here is a sneak peek.  I will mail it at the end of next week to her in England, after she has received it I will post the entire card.  It was inspired by a posting on a card making blog I saw.
