Wreath and a Vase

Hey everyone!  I wanted to post a few projects that I got done today.  First, I started another yarn wreath last week and finally got around to finishing it today.  It's just been sitting around and I had been playing around with the flowers and where to put them.  I had a lot of flowers made, but ended up just going with something simple.  These are so fun and easy to make and the sky is the limit on what you want them to look like!  Here is what I came up with:

Also, I was SO excited today because I finally got a chance to play with my new Silhouette SD cutting machine!  I ordered it over a week ago and it got delivered last Friday.  I had a busy weekend and didn't end up getting to it until today.  I have seen people make so many great things with this little guy, that I just had to have it :)  My first project was a simple one (or so I thought).  Take a hurricane vase that I had and put a etch a design into it.  I ended up just going a simple letter "J."  It took me awhile to get the cut right on my machine, but I finally got it to work.  Once I finally got the right cut, it took me no more than 10 minutes to make the vase.  Once I get the hang of it a bit more, I have a few other ideas that I hope I can make work!

My plain little vase with a very well burned Sandalwood candle from World Market in there:

P.S.  It's really hard taking pictures of glass.
