Stars and Stripes

With the Fourth right around the corner, I thought my front door needed a bit of 'holiday decor'.  While at JoAnne's last week (my Mom and I did some MAJOR crafting for Baby #2's nursery - hope to have some pictures to share soon!!!) I picked up another straw wreath form and some beautiful rich royal blue yarn.  Even managed to scavenge some felt pieces for flowers too.  I had a pretty good idea of what I was looking to make and overall, I'm happy with how this wreath turned out.  It's a great addition  to our otherwise drab front entry.  I'm hoping to have it 're-done' sometime this summer!  (and by re-done I mean adding some props and decor, not rolling out the big guns!)  ;)

More Wreaths - Available in my Etsy shop!

I have been bitten by the wreath bug.... they are so much fun to make and as I tend to be an impatient person - instant gratification!  Well - more instant than some of the other things I make and sell in my Etsy shop.  :)  Here are two new wreaths that are now/almost available in my Etsy shop.  Please visit this link to learn more about pricing:

Welcome Home

I initially had the idea to make this garland way back at Christmas.  Of course the holidays swamped me and then the stress of our move, etc. had me putting it off.... I recently got off my tush though and got to it! I am really pleased with how these garland turned out and hope that a number of people like them!
