How can you not be inspired by this image? It makes me want to go grab the personal watermelon I just bought and eat the whole thing. By myself. Yum!
Hope you’re having a wonderful days filled with Love, Flowers, and just a little bit of chocolate!!
Hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving!! I took a much needed break from work and spent time with my family! How about you?!
With Christmas around the corner (gasp! Really?!?!) it’s time to dress up your little girl in this beautiful Christmas headpiece!
Something about the fall makes me want to pull out the yarn and start a ton of different projects. Yarn screams fall to me. Does it to you?!
My daughter came to me the other day asking me to make her “pink bear a pink blanket”. So I obliged of course. Anything for my baby girl! Although pink doesn’t scream fall to me.
Fellow knitters/crocheters: Are you working on any fun projects for the winter? Do share!
Last Christmas, I made a white coffee filter wreath. Then Chistmas passed and the white coffee filter wreath remained up. I never really felt it was very ‘Christmasy’ so I liked the way it dressed up our living room past the holiday season and filled the big space on the wall where it’s placed. Our living room is simply white and black so it fit perfectly! This Christmas though, I want to dress it up a bit. I’m thinking of some red ornaments in it? Will let you know what I decide on that!
But… I was not feeling the white coffee filter wreath for the fall season. So after seeing the yarn wreaths, I had to make my own!
For under $10 (in which they are about $40 if you buy them on etsy) and about an hour of time, I made my own… just the way I like it!!
These are so simple to make!! You just wrap the yarn around your styrofoam wreath just like you would think.
In order to make these flowers, all you do is cut different sized circles out of your felt material. Once you have your circles, you’ll start from the outside with your scissors and start cutting a spiral towards the center of the circle. Then you’ll start wrapping the spiral around itself starting with the center. You’ll just use a little hot glue on your way around to make it secure.
For the leaves, I just drew 4 leave shapes on my green felt and cut them out.
Then hot glue everything onto the yarn wrapped wreath! Easy Peasy!
Hubby brought home this gorgeous rose the other day! Melts. My. Heart.
And somehow putting it in a mason jar makes it even more beautiful!

Was browsing this morning and came across this great way to create your own scratch offs. Isn’t this just brilliant?
Martha used them to make save the date cards, but I think they’d be a great way to share BIG news with your family if you’re expecting. Or any kind of surprise!
What would you use them for?
Learn to make them yourself. They’re super easy!
