repetitious: adjective

describes something repeated over and over and over and over and over
....you get the idea ;)

I really, really, REALLY dislike repetitive work. My Christmas cards are not alike no matter how many I need to do, I will do anything to not have to repeat myself. I think I have a short attention span, but also a masochistic streak too because knowing how much I hate doing boring, tiresome crafting I set myself up to make this wreath knowing full well that i was going to spend HOURS wrapping the yarn around and around and around the wreath's form. Ok, maybe I'm feeling a little bit of a drama queen moment but I wanted to make sure you understand my drift ;)

without any more whining  drama, here is my finished wreath...( which I LOVE by the way , lol )

I used my front door rug as my inspiration for the colors, so that we are all matchy matchy :)

a close up of all the stickle goodness, and I love bling on snowflakes!! Oh yes I do!
and a shot so you can get an idea of the dimension that each snowflake has. They are all on floral picks so you can actually pull them off and replace them with something like....errrr.....hearts for Valentines! And the buttons are adhered with Liquid Scrapdots to the snowflakes because after I threaded them with the metallic ribbon they had a bumpy bottom so the LSD helps to adhere something that is uneven.

This is amazing. Wreaths are another passion of mine and I have yet to try a yarn wrapping technique. I guess I am a bit intimidated. But yours' is stunning!
