I have been a bit mia, but it is due to so many projects getting done. So it's a good thing!
I threw a baby shower for a friend this past weekend. She's an avid gardener, so we made it a garden theme. When I saw the tissue pomanders at Martha's website I knew I had to make them: You may have seen these around the blogosphere. I think this version is probably the easiest. I can't imagine anything easier! They turned out so cute! I used paper lanterns from the Dollar Tree (much cheaper than a styrofoam sphere), Elmer's glue, and used tissue paper from wedding and baby gifts we have gotten. I actually think the crinkly used tissue paper looks the best.
