Look What I Did!

I saw this in Good Housekeeping and fell in love. Twigs, hot glue, a vase with straight sides — how hard could it be? I decided to try to make my own version for Mrs. Cynicletary's birthday.

First I had to make sure I had enough twigs and that they were roughly the same height:

I hot-glued them in place, easy-peasy:

The final touch: a hemp bow and an armful of sunflowers (also some lime mums that I loved and a few branches from my front hedges). Voila!

This may be my new craft. I am so happy with how it turned out!!

(Got a new keyboard today, plus a new resolution to never, never, never drink anything anywhere near my keyboard again. I have made this resolution before, but this time I mean it. Really!!!)

Happy Fathers Day to all who celebrate, and sending tons of love and virtual hugs to those who are missing their dads today. Husband and I worked on Dad's slideshow today, and that was a very perfect way to spend my first Fathers Day without a dad. The slideshow is awesome, Husband is a genius.

    1. I know not this “Fâchebük” of which you speak, but I'm so happy that you appreciate my labor of love!
