Ribbon wreath and my 0.125% progress

There's no way I could possibly get my act in gear to make a Halloween wreath like this stunning one by The Picky Apple:


But, I can start working my way toward a very glittery winter wreath, and my progress so far of creating a big box full of trimmed pieces:


Yeah, that's right: I've formed one, single loop.  Just 10 kabillion more to go.

you crack me up! so i have a confession to make. i am really overzealous-i go to the craft store(s) and i buy lots of goodies with intentions of making lots of great things. I happily skip home and put them in my closet. Then i forget about them. Ekk! The other night after work I went out and bought stuff to make a wreath. The wreath was described as being "inexpensive." To whom? I am not sure. The supplies cost $30! I think that is expensive! Plus however long it takes me-my time costs money too! :) Pshh! Sure I will enjoy making said wreath but inexpensive to me is $5! Anyhow, I digress. I get home and the fiance says to me, "oh geez. I hope you are not crafting tonight. I need some peice and quiet around here." I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants. It is quite a spectacle when I craft. I glue my fingers together, have fabric everywhere, buttons strewn about, etc. SO-needless to say, said wreath supplies are in the bag in the closet...to get done THIS weekend! :)

That does look totally daunting! I am not envious of the kabillion tiny bows! But it will be gorgeous when you finish! XX!
