Random Thought Thursday (and a wreath!)

So, can you believe it is December? And how many people do you think are saying that today? :)

So...my random thought for today is this...

I SUCK AT CRUTCHES! :(
Which should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me, because I am CLUMSY with a capital C! I can trip over nothing. I am just lacking in this department. Sometimes I do wonder what it would be like to not be such a klutz. I will never be called graceful. But I am ok with that. Really it's a shock that this is the first time I have ever needed crutches!

Anyways...moving on...

I know many people wait to decorate til it is actually December. So if that is you...perhaps I can inspire you to make your own decorations. Those are always the best.

Today I am sharing a wreath I made:


All the papers and embellishments are from Fancy Pants Designs...they are from their fabulous Saint Nick collection. :) The wooden wreath comes from Say It With Letters.

I just punched a bunch of circles, crumpled them up and glued to my wreath. :) Then added a few embellishments on top.

Here are some close up's:



I will be sharing lots more Christmas stuff soon. Thanks for stopping in today!

Have a happy first day of December (it's my brother's birthday today!)

LOL you sound like me, I trip over my shadow! I love the wreath, the idea with the paper is great, I wish I had a nice big leaf punch and I would try that.

I am a clumsy one too. I can't count how many times I end up with random bruises and have no idea where they have come from - likely from bumping into stuff!

Cute wreath! I like that it is simple to make using punched circles.

So sorry about your knee and having to use crutches! I think it would probably drive me crazy, too.

I can't imagine getting around on crutches, I've only ever had a boot cast, and I was pretty awkward with that!
Your wreath is fabulous, so innovative!

Tracy said...

Your wreath is so pretty.
Sorry you hurt yourself, hope you heal quickly.
I don't decorate until 12 days before Christmas :)

Awesome wreath! I love the distressed look of all the circles. I'm working on a wreath too....I actually hope to finish it before Christmas is over. And I'm so with you on the clumsy thing. I trip up the stairs all the time. For no reason. But I've never had to get around on crutches. Good luck with that! :)
