It's true. I have had this tote of corks in my crafting supplies for years. Many years. Since before we moved here.
I have made many Christmas tree ornaments over the years, gifted many, and maybe even sold some. I can't remember.
..... so I'm him-hawing at letting go of these corks. Or keeping a handful. Or not.
Today, I decided to take you down "wine cork memory lane" (and myself) to decide if I shall pass these corks on. They were not saved for storage over the years. I have been a bit creative.
You can see how to make the wine cork mushrooms at my S.C.R.A.P. Blogspot.
This ornament is also posted on my DIY recycling/crafting blogspot (S.C.R.A.P. Blogspot).
Here is the wine cork garland I made years ago. You can also see how to make one of your own at my S.C.R.A.P. Blogspot.
Oh, and if you are wondering, I did not drink all of those bottles of wine. We once lived in a community, where a very nice restaurant served lots and lots of wine. They kindly saved me some corks.
To keep or not to keep. That is the question.
This morning I woke up to a thunderstorm. I kid you not. In February. A full blown downpour, rainstorm, thunderstorm. In the month we typically get the most snow. It's 48°F and they are saying we'll have a high of 60°F? What the heck is happening?
