Wine Drinkers Needed!

For the longest time I've been wanting to make a wine cork corkboard.

I've been saving wine tops for 6 months, but wasn't getting close to having enough.

Then enters my Mom and my sister!

The last time my Mom was in town she delivered two plastic bags full of wine tops that they had saved for me!

Surely I had enough now!

I took down this painting from our dining room that I hate.

I bought it the year Andrew and I got married and loved it, but it is so dark in our already super red dining room. I figured the frame was pretty and it would make a huge corkboard.

Unfortuantly, I only got about 1/2 way done when I ran out of wine tops. This thing is seriously huge!

I've already informed Amber she can't drink boxed wine for awhile, but I think I'm going to need to enlist a lot more wine drinkers if I plan to finish this anytime soon!

Don't worry....I'm on a mission to collect all corks onboard all flights that I work. Today on the way to Amsterdam I got 10 more! Between collecting them on my trips and collecting them at home...it probably won't take long at all!!!!

I have a gallon size ziploc bag full of them. I had the same intentions, but lost steam with collecting them. If you want me to send them to you, just send me an email with your address and they are yours!

I wonder if any local restaurants would give you some? Possibly :)
