make a rad rag wreath!

for the past few months as i walk in my front door and look at the 4.99 target clearance wreath hanging in my face, it doesn't make me happy. i'm not saying there is anything wrong with the wreath... it was good during it's prime. it's just lost it's luster and been worn by the elements. i was ready for something fresh, new and colorful to take it's place on my front porch.

today i decided to tackle this project. i had a bunch of scraps hanging around my craft cave, as well as some cool vintage trims i've picked up in my adventures in thrifting. voila... a bright and happy wreath perfect to cheer a dreary day.

you too can make a lovely wreath, this tuesday night at craftacular tuesdays at anomaly!

when? this tuesday (6/9) from 6:30-8:30
where? 1021 park street.
what to bring? $5 and yourself (friends and beers, optional)
questions? 904.354.7002

i've also been inspired over the past few weeks with some ideas to make the blog more fun! stay tuned because in two days i'll be posting a friendly little crafty contest.
i'm also going to be launching a SUMMER SEWING SPECTACULAR. i've got a few sewing projects i want to teach you crafty folk, so i've lined up 4 ideas that will run consecutive weeks at the store. get excited. i know i am. it's going to be fun.
in the meantime, get your creative juices flowing for tomorrow (almost today, as the current time is 11:55pm...). feel free to bring your own fabric scraps and/or trims if you have something specific you'd like to use. but as always, you don't have to bring a thing except yourself, i'll have plenty of supplies!
really looking forward to getting crafty!
