So today starts Week 1 of Kim's Dare to DIY Challenge and this week's challenge was to Be Thankful aka make some Thanksgiving crafties. Well if you saw me in action last year, you'd think I ruled at this type of thing. See, last year I made DIY No-Sew Crushed Velvet Pumpkins. And ya know what? That tutorial is freakin popular. It brings a ton of traffic to my little blog here. So obvs. I felt a ton of (self-induced) pressure to make something kick-ass. And um, I buckled under that pressure. So instead, I made a Book Page Wreath.
It was super easy and I was able to use all sorts of supplies I had on hand in my stash. There are a billion great tutorials out there. I just used the first one that popped up on google. And let's just put it out there that I made this Saturday night at like 9 alongside a glass of mediocre Malbec. I can't vouch for the uniformity of my paper cones. And I will now stop apologizing for my wreath and get on with it...

I figure the sentiment is a sublte nod to the meaning of Thanksgiving and sums up how I feel bout those dudes I live with. I like em a lot and they make life pretty darn awesome. So I'm thankful for them. And you guys too.
