I joined a Garland Exchange on Instagram! Never made a Garland before.
The first one I made was the Fall Leaves.
I spied on my Partners Blog that she
had not time for Fall Decorating.
I left her Fall Leaf Garland on the Fireplace....
M husband came home from Golfing
and texted me that the Garland on the Fireplace looked nice.
LOL! It is still there.
So I had to make another one for my partner.
In the e-mail regarding my partner it
stated that she loved Mason Jars,
her favorite colors are Blue and Green.
In the beginning I was had plans to make her the
Mason Jar Garland.
So she will receive both.
The Garland exchange is a fundraiser
to help with adoption fees.
This is my 2nd Fundraiser for this cause.
I have enjoyed both.
These two fundraiser have taken me out
of my crafting comfort zone.
I have found that I really enjoyed making the Garlands.
I plan to make more...
