the DIY Dish inspires me!

Have you seen this?
the DIY Dish?

quirky, fun.
Love the Kris and Kim team effort!

After watching this video...

go ahead and click on it....
I'll wait--it's a good one :)

wasn't it good?
I was inspired around the 14:40 mark, especially.
I needed an embellishment for a gift I'd wrapped for a bridal shower.

I had to leave at 7:25pm.

It was 5:30pm.
Hubby would be home in 15 mins
and then dinner, kids baths, bedtime and out the door.

I had to think quick.
there was no time for lollygagging
(my Nana used to say that!)

the part about the flowers in the 2 minute countdown of the DIY Dish segment popped into my head.
and in 5 minutes....
I had this!

Even with children hanging off my limbs!

Easy and QUICK!

and a bit of a show stopper!

Thanks Kris and Kim :)

Now I want to cover some lampshades.

Thanks for stopping by the giveaway today. V&Co is pretty awesome!
