I'm so excited to have finally finished my Halloween wreath! I have a Scarlett O'Hara complex. You kow, the whole "I'll think about it tomorrow" kinda gal. I usually get in the mood to do Halloween crafts right about November 1st. Seriously.
This year I was determined to complete my take on Piccadilly Peddler's Christmas themed wreath but for Halloween.
I am so pleased with how it turned out that I may have to make another for Christmas. It took a lot of time to cut the circles, but I think the final product was worth the effort!
Also, a few of you have asked me how my dog is doing after her eye injury last month. Sadly, she ended up losing her eye due to a condition called a melting cornea. Trust me, is just as gross as it sounds. The good news is that she is 100% back to normal and is dealing well with the loss of her left eye. I thought I'd share a before and after pic of her.
***WARNING: The after picture is not gross, but it is a little shocking, so stop right here if you are the slightest bit squemish***
By the way, her eye does not always bulge like that, but she hates having her picture taken and gets all wide-eyed when the camera comes out! Our gal is a real trooper and it's so good to have her back to her playful, loving self. (I know my sister will disagree with the loving part, but honestly, her son only had to have 2 or 3 stitches and that was years ago!) She just turned 11 on Sept. 11th, so to bounce back so well at this age is a huge relief to us.
We are thinking of dressing her as a pirate for Halloween...eye patch and all!
I still have a few projects in the works, so I'm planning to do some crafting today and hope to post them later this week!
