Mom wrapped her burlap a little differently and tighter than mine which gives it a neat look that I am pretty fond of. instead of the berries like I did, she picked these pine pieces with red berries.
Before I go though, a little funny story. We actually had to make two trips for ribbon for two reasons. One, because mom isn't a craft hoarder like I am and doesn't just have supplies in case something goes wrong. Two, because apparently the little elf that does quality control for Dollar tree - assuming there is such a thing- didn't do his job too well. Don't get me wrong, I am all for some good deals at the DT, but I am now a little hesitant to buy ribbon. Why? Well, we bought a 9 feet roll of red ribbon which should have been totally sufficient, however, in reality the ribbon was only about 5 feet!!! It was very strange when I had just 2 loops done and wham I was out of ribbon!! Needless to say we were going over by Walmart and picked up the fabulous ribbon shown here :)Now on to make up Cookie dough to take down to moms for or little mini cookie making party. I swore ThursdayI wad going fora run this morning, but the wind sounds as if it could rip our house down, so I think I will pass and work inside before running errands.
