Fall Wreath

Good morning friends,

I want to share this fall wreath I made. I saw this wreath a few weeks ago at Lauren's Creative, then again when Cristi @ Scrappin 5 Little Cupcakes also did one. I absolutely fell in love with it and made a special trip to Joanns for supplies. You can visit both of their blogs for tutorials. The only difference in mine is the berry picks. Both Lauren and Christie used 3 of the acorn picks in theirs, but my Joanns put most of their Fall decor items on 60% off, so I could only find one of the acorn picks. I think it looks ok with the berrys as well. I purchased my ribbon from Walmart, but plan to replace it because it just isn't as wide as I wanted. I hardly ever make home decor, but found it quite fun and somewhat addictive. Now I want to try more projects to decorate my home with. Thanks so much for stopping by:)

Halloween Treat Bags

Hello Everyone

Thanks soo much for your prayers and kind words during the loss of my grandmother. I enjoyed seeing family members that I hadn't seen in years. The last of the family members that came in from out of town left Tuesday. I have been visiting blogs and commenting, but didn't have the mojo to blog. I have been doing some crafting though and am excited to hopefully get back in a routine.

I want to share some treat bags I made for my daughter's preschool class. I finally purchased the Martha Stewart drippy goo punch and couldn't wait to use it on this project. The patterned paper is from Cloud 9. I used Mini Monograms cart for the circle and scallop circle. The sentiment is from Studio G. I purchased it from my local Walmart. Thanks so much for stopping by:)

I am linking this project to:

MIA and needing your prayers

Hello Everyone,

It's been about 3 weeks since my last post. Work, and family life has gotten super busy and my crafting has been few and far between. I had planned to complete some projects this weekend, but my grandmother passed away on Thursday. It was her 99 birthday! She ate her lunch that day then God decided it was time for her to come home. We miss her dearly, but know she is with our heavenly father now. I feel that she received the ultimate birthday present. I have family that will be arriving today. They were already coming because we had planned a party for grammy, but didn't realize that the Lord had other plans for her. I hope to get back into some crafting next week. Until then, all I ask is for your prayers for me and my family. Thanks so much for stopping by:)
