you know you’re a Craftaholics when…

 you finish this wreath while in labor trying to get your mind off contractions…. and then give birth to your second son a few hours later. yep, i have a problem. ok, an obsession {that’s why i’m here…} but hey, it worked! hot gluing small candy corns onto a wreath sure does get your mind off contractions!! lol
 i know i’ll always remember this fall wreath. as in seared-in-my-memory as the craft i had to finish before my water broke! aww, the memories we make while crafting.

happy {fall} crafting! :)

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    That is hilarious! I made a delicious pasta salad while I was in labor with my second child. I was convinced that they would stop my labor and send me home that night from the hospital and we needed lunch for the next day :) It didn't go that way…and we never got to eat the pasta salad…sad…
