And Now For Something Completely Different

And I do mean different.   I signed up for a swap that involves making a "hanglie danglie" for Valentine's Day.  So, I took a break from all the Christmas oriented stuff and worked on it.  For those who don't know....a hanglie danglie is something with things dangling from it AND something on top so it can be hung up.  Clever, huh?
OK, is anyone besides me thinking, "over the top?"
It's so far over, it went way past the point where I would have hated it's fussiness, and into the land of "so bad it's good."  At least in my opinion.
So, here is the front, and then the back, which doesn't have to be decorated much. 

 
Have you OD'd on the sugar yet?  LOL!  You know, sometimes it's OK to work outside of your comfort zone.  Or am I just being too apologetic?  I await (with some dread) the comments.  Oh, and did I mention the most amazing thing of all?   I  like it!

Hanglie Danglie - what a great idea! I agree, it's a nice change of holidays, though I adore Christmas. Great inspiration!

Whoa, there's a lot of blingie blingie on the hanglie danglie! (Couldn't resist). That is out of your comfort zone! But somehow, it all works together very well. The back is awesome too! I likie likie. I'm thinkin' 'bout buying a bedazzler.
