12 Days of Christmas Day 10 {Beaded Christmas Garland}

Welcome to Day 10 of the 12 Days of Christmas. I’ll share this tutorial in just a minute, but first . . . . In light of the recent events in Connecticut, I hope you all had plenty of chances to hug your children yesterday. My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Newton. Who could have imagined such a horrible tragedy? Like you, I feel so helpless, and I wish I could do something to help. Several bloggers are putting their heads together to think of something. I’ll let you know details as I find out.

On a happier note, I’m excited to welcome my next guest–Meredith, from Wait ‘Til Your Father Gets Home! (Her site is host to two of my very favorite projects–the Mad Planter and the Fabric Covered Crate Seat. I didn’t realize they were both from her site until today, but they are some of the very first projects I pinned when I started blogging.)
