(do go visit shannon if you get the chance - she's nutty about pinterest too -aren't we all??!! - i love the girl!!!)
here's the inspiration - shannon's lovely flowers.....
|link to this pic and post - here|
(click on that link shown below her photo for the low down)
goob used her veto power on the pink (she has an aversion to anything pink - i swear) - so we went with white tissue paper instead.
goob also told me when to stop (ie she didn't want too many flowers) and had a little too much input on flower placement for my liking (she's really getting a little pushy that girl....!) - even though i was the one gasping in pain from hot glue gun burns.....!!
anyhoo - here's some pics for your viewing pleasure.....(all the pics get bigger if you click on them!!)
with my glue gun - i dabbed some glue onto the branch then sqished the flower in with the glue onto the branch. (hence the sometimes hot glue burn feeling - ouch! - be careful with this step!)
it's a little hard to see on the kitchen bench pic above - but do go to shannon's blog if you need any further explanation - it's good - i promise!
i then took the arrangement into our loungeroom for a photo shoot (?!) - as it looked better against the light grey walls......
and below - here is where it sits in goob's room - (it may move around - as her room is in the middle of a huge makeover - but it does look really good here for now.....).....
goob is once again happy - and all is well with our world!!!
(i'm being very cheeky - the goob and i get on very well - especially for a 15yr old - and it's fun to be working with her on this room)
thank you shannon for the great inspiration. you may not have come up with the original idea - but your post came at just the right time for me - and that's what this blogging is all about - yes??
another thing done.......now what's next......... (??)
hugz from me.
