I did it!

You guys, I am not crafty.  Like not even a little bit.  Like going to the craft store makes me feel like a lost puppy, or a little girl who needs her mommy (and I seriously wished she was there today to help me.)

BUT, I braved it anyway.  I grabbed my little basket and forged through the unknown territory with fierce determination.  I was going to do it!  And I did! 

I made this!

Isn’t it adorable??!

The best part (well the ONLY part really) is that it’s made out of balloons.

It’s perfect for Easter and for birthdays (which we have quite a few in the coming months). It’s so bright and fun and cheerful and unusual.  And I just can’t help smiling every time I walk up to my door and THAT makes me so happy. 

*I in no way, shape or form take credit for this idea.  I actually saw it on a friend’s door the other day and fell in love with it.  I thought, “Hey I could DEFINITELY do that.” So I just went for it.  Picked up a straw wreath (kept the plastic on), bought a bajillion balloons at the $0.99 store along with a few hundred pins and voila!

And now I’m entirely crafted out for the rest of the year.

EDIT: Upon further research I have found a site that quite possibly came up with the idea.  Just covering my bases.  Winking smile

I am way impressed. Way to channel Kelli and make something adorable.

I feel the same way at craft stores. They are so overwhelming and make me feel about 2 in tall.
