the crafts will kill you


tree skirt
Originally uploaded by Needleworks, Inc..

This is my cute tree skirt and my super cute silver tinsel tree. My mom bought it for me at an post holiday sale at West Elm. It was originally almost $70 and we got it for, like, $5! Yay!

The skirt is just pink felt cut into the shape of my coffee table and the little circles are the bottom of my can of Cafe Bustello. I sewed on a few ribbons to tie it in the back and, voila, tree skirt!

Over the weekend, I was talking to my mom, who is the orignial Crafty, Make-Everything-By-Hand Lady, about all the holiday projects I still have to finish and she said, and I quote, "Be careful. The crafts will kill you."

I'm gonna put that on a t-shirt.
