I had been looking for an Advent wreath for awhile and never really found anything I liked. Our decor leans toward the contemporary, and I wanted to find something less traditional. No luck. So it was time to get crafty. I found this gold wreath at Hallmark, spray painted in silver, and added silver star tinsel from Walmart. I like the result- we start lighting candles tonight!

Here's a skirt I made for D from the pant leg of an old pair of jeans that never fit right. I wanted a ruffle at the bottom to make it a little more feminine- it was kind of tricky and ended up having to do it my hand. Here she is modeling it. She's hard to get her to stand still for photos- I don't think she has a future as a catalogue model. She's the cutest, though!
