A New Addition: The Brady Wreath

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas - or Happy Holidays - whichever greeting you prefer.

Ours was wonderful - it's the first year that the kids have really been excited about Santa and all of the Christmas-related festivities.  I'll try to post more on that later.

A couple weeks ago, my husband asked me to make a wreath for a coworker of his - it was actually for a family member of a coworker - so the only details I was given was to make it in "white, creams, and tans."

Any requests for additional specifications or details were fruitless.

Typically, this would not work for me.  Typically, I need very specific instructions. Typically, I'm not dealing with 2 men working with more detail-oriented people who understand why "white, creams, and tans" are not true details.

It's always a little worrisome when you put a ton of time and effort into creating something without knowing what the end result might be...

...but I had already made 4 other wreaths that of which took over 1000 (dyed!) coffee filters....and I just wanted to get it done.

I'd been thinking about doing a wreath similar to this for a while, and I was happy with how it turned out...

I used several shades of book pages, white coffee filters, and coffee-dyed filters.

It's named "The Brady Wreath"  - after the person who ordered it.

(SHAMELESS PLUG - see, if you order a custom wreath from me, it may be named after's not everyday you get a wreath named in your honor!)

What does "white, creams and tans" mean to you?  

uhhhhhhhh.... thoughts, exactly.

(Oh, and of course, I never found out if his coworker liked the wreath or not because my husband "hasn't had a chance" to talk to him. MEN.)

take care -

At that time the standard on the layer fabric also as the processing level is not high. Style [URL=][/URL] ended up compare uninteresting. The content of cashmere was minimal although the quantity of filler ended up being cheesy. What's worse, the design was unsightly. Thus your [URL=][/URL] was named as bread jacket.
