Blogger Award!

I'm pretty excited for this Blogger Award! It's my first ever!

Thanks to Heather over at Decor-ganize Crafts for giving this award to me! {You should really check her stuff out, she's got some way freaking cute ideas!!} Especially since I've been kinda MIA from the blogging world for a bit.

10 things about me :
1} I'm a gamer, I love any kind of video games
2} I have a habit of starting projects but not finishing them
3} I have never seen the big volume of Pride and Prejudice
4} I'm pregnant with our first child
5} I love pizza and buffalo wings
6} I love reading children/juvenile fantasy books
7} I make my Christmas presents every year (at least to my girls)
8} I'm the 2nd oldest of 6 kids (but oldest girl)
9} I grew up in Wisconsin (and sometimes still have the accent)
10} I'm planning on opening my Etsy store by JUNE! (cross your fingers!)

Now, for some other "Kreativ Bloggers"
in no order

There are so many others that deserve this award and I wish I could give more.
The rules of the award are to do a post about who gave you the award and then pass the award onto 10 other bloggers.  Let everyone know 10 things about yourself.
Ok, so since I can't change my alignment back to the left, this is just how it's going to be. I'm lame, I don't really blog-stalk anymore, so I didn't find 10 awesome bloggers. Remember, I'm lame and have been missing.
Love to all these really awesom bloggers! ♥

Easter Egg Wreath

Are you ready for another wreath?! I know I am! Wanna make one of these :

Well, I'll show you how!

Here's what you need :
  1. Cardboard
  2. 36 Easter eggs
  3. Easter grass
  4. Hot glue
  5. mini eggs (optional)

First, your going to want to trace 2 circles. I used 2 plates. Then, cut them out, so you have a cardboard donut.

Next, start hot gluing plastic Easter eggs on the cardboard donut.

I try to glue 2 rows of eggs. Keep gluing all the way around!

Once you have your cardboard donut covered with plastic eggs, start on the next layer of eggs.

I set the eggs in the middle of 3, where there's a crevice/valley, then hot glue them where they lay.

I also picked out some little mini eggs and I started laying them in between the layers of eggs, to fill in the gaps.

Next, take your Easter grass, and press it in between the gaps in the eggs.

For some of the "harder to reach areas" I used a pencil to squeeze the grass in.

Now, tie a ribbon on, I hot glued it on the back of cardboard to it stays put! Now you're all ready for Easter!!
