I have lots of crafty hobbies, when I go to a craft store, I can hit about every section of the store and find something for each of my hobbies. That is every section but one. The Floral Department. I mean I will go through there on occasion just to see if there is anything that I can repurpose into a paper crafting project, but to actually make anything with all those flowers? Well I have tried and let me just say it involved tears, some not so nice language and creating something that looked like three dogs fought over in the rain. No project has ever seen the light of day. My mother-in-law Barbara makes these gorgeous arrangements that would fit into any top notch store. Normally if I want something floral, I ask her or one of my other friends and just kind of point out stuff I like. I don't know if it is Barbara wearing off on me or the fact that I have followed her around store after store looking at flowers or arrangements, but I decided to make a Christmas centerpiece for my dining room table. For the first time, I am happy with something floral that I have made. It's nothing too fancy or anything, but I was happy enough with it that it will stay on the table and I am even showing it to people!!
