better late than never

I usually have a few Christmas projects every year that are unfinished.  I put them in a box for next year.  This year I pulled out the jute upholstery webbing my friend and I bought last year to make these cute card holder wreaths that my friend Lacey showed me in the December 08 Better Homes and Gardens Magazine.  There was also a tutorial for it on Little Birdie Secrets.  It was the week before Christmas and most of my "to do" list was done, so I thought I would work on the "didn't get done" list from last year.  This was the simplest wreath to make and I love how it displayed the Christmas cards and photos we got in the mail.  The webbing is only about .80 a yard and I used a straw wreath that I didn't take the plastic wrap off of.  Unfortunately, this is the only thing that got done out of last year's undone projects.  And, I did add some more to this year's list that I started two days before Christmas.  Always leaving something undone.  But, I really do get excited when I see them the next year.  I hope I am as excited to see the 10 half eaten gingerbread men ornaments that I only cut out next year in that box.   Oh, and once I take all the cards off, I will take a photo of it so you can see what it looks like underneath.  I just got too excited and loaded up the cards as soon as it was done. 

Don't forget about the awesome giveaway.  Thanks for all those who have entered so far and signed up for Grace's mailing list.  The count down is on.
