Winter Centerpiece its cold outside!

I know that most of North America is in a current deep freeze and my complaining won't do anything about it but I just can't help it none the less.  Monday was the first day back to school after Christmas break but due to -50 C temps (that's -60 F), buses weren't running and unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at things), neither was my car LOL.  The freeze is supposed to break tomorrow and I'm crossing my fingers it does - a month of this is just too much!

In all these sub zero temps I just haven't felt that motivated to craft.  This last week a blanket, fire, and a movie or book just seemed like the right thing to do.  I have made myself a long list of to do's as far as stamping goes, now I just have to find the motivation to get them done!  I have a class this upcoming weekend so I think that preparing for it will light the spark again.  Until then I have this Winter Centerpiece project to share with you that I created quite some time ago for U Stamp with Dawn and Friends.

It's a great decor item to put out now that the Holiday's are over.  The sparkle of the snowflakes and gold curly cues gives a nod to winter yet at the same time the purple anemones and green hydrangeas promise that spring (might be) just around the corner.  Closer to spring the snowflakes can be taken out of the arrangement and easily replaced with bunnies for Easter, a small banner announcing Spring, simply or more ribbon to fill in the gaps.

Until next time, keep warm and snuggly!

Love this bouquet. How do you make and attach the stems? I am Sillyfilly on SCS.

The stems are all made with floral wire and attached with hot glue under the base of the flower. I used floral foam in the mason jar to hold the stems in place. HTH!
