Mini Clay Pot and Grapevine Wreath

It’s been quite a while since I sat down to my blog and created something. I’ve spent the past nearly five-months in isolation and crafting, crafting, crafting — but, I’ve been posting to a variety of Facebook groups rather than my blog. My bad!! I wrote a story on Feb. 10th about how I had…

Lavender and White Easter

Last year I used yellow teamed with black and white polka dots as my colors for my spring/Easter decor. I loved it. But I also really appreciate that, while I’m still full-time employed, I can switch up my holiday and seasonal decor (mostly thanks to Dollar Tree putting a location only a mile away). The…

Flip Flop Wreath

Sorry, I’ve been MIA since the holidays, but I had such a fabulous day today that I thought I’d keep my happiness going and pull out some stuff to craft. This is actually similar to a wreath I made last summer, but it bares revisiting with one important change — which I’ll be sure to…

Friendship Wreath Inspired by Hazlett Winery

Life was meant for good friends and great adventures. As we get older, it’s likely that the most prominent memories are those that involve times spent with friends. Whether it was a good time out, a good time in, or simply a good time, those fun and adventurous memories will last a lifetime. Even when…

Deco Mesh Fall Wreath

WAIT! Don’t turn away! This isn’t your normal deco mesh wreath tutorial. This one is much easier. I know I often write about things I’ve made using supplies I’ve bought at Dollar Tree and because of that, many of the projects I’ve written about are fairly inexpensive to make. Well, this is not a Dollar Tree…

Heart Grapevine Wreath

My dad used to say, “She was the prettiest girl in town.” My mom used to say, “He swept me off my feet.” Through thick and thin, my parents stayed together, and when my father passed away in 2001, they had been married for nearly 64-years. This week — July 11 — they would have…

Quick and Easy Wreath

My husband is in the middle of relocating his business, so I’ve taken a bit of a break from crafting. He’s an Horologist; a clockmaker. And after 31-years in the same location, he has hundreds of thousands (okay, that might be just a bit of an exaggeration – but not by much) of clock movements…

Deco Mesh Wreath

The Deco Mesh Wreath seems to frighten many crafters, including me. Afraid of the possible mess from the fraying of the mesh, I had never made one — until this past August when my knee jerk reaction to losing my sister was to lock myself in my craft room and become one with my “stuff.”…

Snowflake/Star Wall-Hanging

Sometimes we all need a break from taxing our brains with so much thinking. Sometimes we just need mindless tasks. Right? That’s the problem solved by tonight’s project. Plus, we’re going through another tropical storm tonight, this one named Phillipe (sheese, when will it end?), so it’s definitely time for some crafting. I saw a…

Pineapple Door/Wall Decor

Last night’s Craft Night with my Sistas was all about the pineapple. Did you know the pineapple is recognized as a traditional expression of “welcome” throughout the South and in areas along the Eastern Seaboard. Appearing on all sorts of décor – from door knockers to quilts – the fruit symbolizes those intangible assets we…

Burlap Ribbon Wreath

Still spending most of my free time in my safe room (my craft room), I’ve made a bunch of things that I’ll be sharing with you. I saw this idea on the Dollar Tree‘s DIY Facebook page and fell in love with it. Here’s my version. Supplies: Wire wreath form with four rows of wire,…

Patriotic Clothespin Wreath

I’m so excited to share this craft with you, because it’s one that I received from my Box Buddy. “What’s that?” you say? Well, a Box Buddy is someone you exchange the makings for a craft with. (I know, bad grammar.) And, that someone is from another area of the country. My Box Buddy is…
