A few weeks ago my friend, Nicole, invited a few ladies over to her home for a craft night.  Nicole ordered a variety of wreath kits from Paper Source.  After we each picked a wreath kit to make, we enjoyed delicious appetizers and listened to 80’s music while we crafted the night away.

Usually I use drop cloths […]
