I Don't Drink Enough!

Well, the power (and air conditioning) was just out for a full 24 hours, so this afternoon I took it upon myself to take my wine corks outside in the breeze and finish my cork wreath! I am so, so happy with how it turned out!
Now, don't worry- I can hear what you're saying to yourself: Holy WINO that girl drinks a lot. But if I may defend myself, believe it or not I did not drink the wine from which all of these corks came from. I have to give a big shout out to my Aunt Vicki and Uncle Bo, who reluctantly took up the hobby of drinking wine for the sole purpose of donating their corks to me (wink wink). 

The fact that I needed to use my family's corks brought me to one conclusion: I haven't even been coming close to drinking enough wine! Looks like I'll need to vamp it up, all in the name of crafts!

Though I had saved numerous colored corks, I only used regular ones with the exception of this one with leopard spots to make the wreath a little bit funky. And even though I can't quite decide which room I want to hang it in, at least the hard part of actually making the wreath is over. This project came under the category of  'only have time to attempt this in the summer time', so I'm really happy I finished it!

For anyone who wants to attempt to make a cork wreath, I have a very serious suggestion that I need you to take into consideration:
Develop a love for Beringer wine, because toothpicks poke into those corks very easily:).
Happy Drinking Wreathing!
