With A Little Help From My Friend....



I decided to tackle some flowers.  I've been up to my eyeballs in Ikea and needed a distraction.  And some wine.  It always seems like a good idea to tackle your first ever foray into flower making with the help of some wine.  

The rose kit is from Melissasminiwereld on Etsy.  It's pretty straight forward, but a bit of a challenge for this newbie.  Oh wine, a good mini making companion.

As a side note, please note the gorilla to the left of the Elmer's glue.  Miss Kitty says this is me, momma monkey.  The likeness is not accurate, it is the summer after all, I do shave my legs now and again!

  3. I look forward to see the roses finished! =) I think flowers are too hard to make, I give up all the time =) Maybe I can't make them just because I never drink wine...;)
