Since Halloween, we had our second, sweet boy's birthday, a crafting market I showcased some items in, Christmas orders (arising from said market,) and decorating for Christmas; all the while, having our daily life occur. I want to show you some of the fun, we have had along the way...
I made two balloon wreaths for the front door to celebrate birthdays. Well, correction, I had one half-way made for the past year. So, I finished it and another for our double doors. I also made some fabric bunting; I like the idea that it's good for the Earth (no throwing it away) and maybe the boys will want to use the decorations for their children some day.
There are billions (like Dr. Evil says) of tutorials out there on the wreaths... Word to the wise, buy more floral pins and balloons then you think. I kept my receipts, just in case I had any leftover... Not a chance as I had to go back and purchase more balloons and pins. They don't go that far and I didn't even worry about the sides. I just did the top, outward facing part of the wreath.
Of course, I couldn't help but Aggie up a caddy. Unfortunately, this one didn't sell, so momma gets to keep it!! I know it's not a sound business model, but what the heck! I love it!!
I will be better about completing my blogging duties, but as you can see I am a work in progress. This is supposed to be fun (which it totally is!) but also, this blog was to help me finish crafts, too (which I have been doing.) So, stay with me... I am here and will continue to blog. Thank you for hanging in there!
