I've been tagged and day 6

Here is day 6. I used the paper I used for my Christmas cards because of the poinsettias in the wreath. I bought this wreath on black friday. It was just a plain pine one. Today I got it out of the suburban and fixed it up with ribbon, poinsetties and berry picks to hang it on my front door. I had a real cute one that my sister in law made me 12 years ago, but I can't find it so I did this one...not quite as cute, but I like it.
I made breakfast for dinner because it was easy...just biscuits and sausage gravy. I should have made eggs, but I was too tired. I didn't get nearly enough sleep last night so I think I'm heading to bed at a decent time for a change of pace. :o)

Fun to learn more about you!! Your wreath is darling!! I have a phobia about making things (weird that I'd have a crafting hobby, then - LOL), so it would almost give me an anxiety attack to attempt to make my own wreath! LOL I hope you're able to find your other one!!

Hi Jolene,

So glad I got you told me how to fix my comments. I have totally fixed it now so you dont have to do the text verification(told you I had to stop mucking around with it).
