looks like i gotta get my drink on

i've always seen wine work trivets, and cork boards, and all sorts of stuff...but it's not really my style. so i throw them away. but now...i have GOT to get to drinking. because i need this in my life asap.
um, for realz?! a MONOGRAMMED cork art?? that's like 2 of my favorite things...monograms, and vino. i know i have one bottle in the fridge...and 2 champagne corks on our table from new year's and something else....but clearly, i need to get moving. cuz this, with a D, in what will eventually be our dining room once my little sis takes our ugly apartment furniture we barely spent any money on?? heck yes.

if you'd like to try this our too, i got the tutorial from HERE.

and if you're a wine-o like me and wanna mail me some corks to make the process go faster, and less boozy.....

Hi, it's Kathryn from I Can Find The Time...thank you for featuring my Monogrammed Wine Cork wall hanging! This is by far my favorite item I've made recently using the huge jar of wine corks we had saved for years.

And just for you readers...I'll share my next plan: I have a vision of a much larder wall hanging with my complete monogram "KBK" in the typical monogram style (small outer letters with large inner letter). It might be too much...or it might be freakin awesome. Better get drinking becaue I'll need about a hundered corks to do that one! *hickup* :)

This is so cool! Seeing as I'm the only one that drinks wine in my family it will take me forever to collect enough corks. Maybe a party is in order!? :o)
