You are the most talented and creative people I know, and I'm not just saying that because I'm about to ask your opinion about something...
It's because I'm horrible at making decisions, and my husband (who proudly makes dog food for a living) doesn't spend much of his "free time" crafting, so I thought I'd go straight to the experts (you) for advice....
Do you think we should use this for our Christmas table centerpiece?
Teehee...sometimes I kill myself.
Actually, this isn't my real question, but I had to share Max's most recent craft project. He today decided he had to paint this pumpkin, and the only washable paint I could find was red and yellow finger paint.
all of the crap our "memory-making" and half-finished floor in the background)
Emme was not inspired by Max's pumpkin project....
...she decided painting the table, cardboard, and her hands would be more fun.
Okay, so here's my real dilemma (is it ironic that I can't spell that word)...
I made a driftwood mirror to put on Etsy:
I haven't cleaned it up at all because I truly need advice on what to do....so there's glue strings and paper scraps everywhere.
Just to "see," I stuck a couple paper flowers on it...
(yes, that is my hand/camera in the mirror, you'll see them again)
Hmmmm...so I sort of liked the way it looked, though it's not really my typical style. I thought it might be a twist on the typical driftwood mirror idea.
Then I added some gold leaves like the ones on my wreaths:
(By the way, none of this is glued down, so the flowers are kind of jammed into the holes)
And then I added even more leaves...
So then, I was about to go look for my spray glitter, neon puffy paint, and bedazzler...and thought I'd better stop and ask for help before I reach the point of no return.
Please be honest with me....do you like it:

6. It's okay, But What You Should Do Is.... (and then you share your incredibly amazing idea, and I become an overnight Internet sensation like the grumpy cat)
My goal is to sell the mirror.
If you've read my blog in the past, you know most of my stuff is pretty plain...I have trouble knowing when to stop, so I usually opt for the safe route and keep it simple.

Thanks so much!!
