Nevertheless. I like that word. It sounds daring and cheeky. (Another word I LOVE-especially because my little redheaded girl loved using it...and it described her exactly!) Anyway, I digress...that is a word that describes me...I digress from things I am SUPPOSED to be doing. Like laundry and commissions. BAH.
But I decided that I needed to make these flowers-for someone to receive that might need them not to wilt and die and have to be thrown out. Hope so.
And these colors reminded me that I love, absolutely love ROSES. And I am trying to patiently wait until we can put in our new rose bed in the corner of my yard. In WA I had over 55 rose bushes and I miss them. So what can a gardener do put plant them again?
So I followed a tut that had me roll them onto tape but soon I found my cooler melt glue gun to work faster and better and I could fold and roll and gather pretty darn fast.
I also went to DI and got a really ugly vase and repainted it. AND I forgot to take a before pic...but believe me, it was a real UGLY brown and orange thingy. Yes, a bit of green glass paint and antique and spray and it can be used. GREAT DEAL VASE..2 bucks.
SO, I am ready to mail them off and I am somewhat pleased how they came out. I hope they will convey the spirit of hope and beauty that is intended. tutorial on coffee filter flowers here, This girl is a real hoot to read....just sayin.
