Kitschy, Kitschy, Cute!

My Wreath

I was so happy with the way it turned out.

I'm so proud of my little kitschy Christmas Wreath that I made in Jenner's class on Saturday.  Loads of fun to glitter and glue (I'm not really a big glitter girl) when I don't have to worry about the mess or cats walking through it all.  This just reminded me of my childhood, it had that whole 60's kitsch feel to it. 
Judy, Jennifer (teacher) and Judy's Sister
Jennifer is one of my Paper Cowgirl teachers, and it was very amusing to be on the "other side" of the class room for a change. We were the boisterous table for sure, what with "Paula" and "Sister's fighting" going on. Great fun though.  I always like being a part of the trouble making table.  :)
Jennifer's Class Sample
Jenn's class sample was so cute!
So much vintage goodies to play with.

And new sparklies too!

She had loads of things for us to "play with". Lots of sparkly new and loads of vintage (which of course I had TO drop one and break it). And sitting next to Phyllis Ann, she always shares her supplies, she gave me the coolest flocked vintage bell. And then I had to copy her by glittering it. As I said, loads of fun.

I can hardly wait to decorate and mix my cute wreath in with all little houses and other kitschy Christmas. Just thinking of it makes me feel a little "frosty".  Which is great for a 108 degree day.  Hope you are staying cool. 



  1. I can see you are going to be fun to hang out with :) My decorating and creating tastes are all over the spectrum too :)) Hi Tina,
    Love the wreath you guys made with all the cute vintage goodness. I just wanted to let you know that I received one of your tags from Karla's Birdsong Swap, I love the pretty lady and the little touch of lace. Looking forward to the next swap.

  2. Ooooh! So cute and looks like y'all had a great time. Great to see your sweet message today...I'm staying super busy with kids needs in marching band this summer. Carpooling, etc. Looking forward to Fall's cool temps. This heat is crazy! Maybe Fall will bring more time for artistic ventures... ~ a

  3. Hey, friend! I'm so GLAD you came and had fun. It was a BLAST for me, too! And if I wasn't teaching, I'd have been sittin' at the trouble table, too. No better place. :D

    Love you!
