1st week of April

This week I have had difficulty balancing work and life.  So my makes this week are few and far between.  I was able to squeeze in a few makes.  I hope you guys enjoy them and I hope to be better on track this next week.  This week I made 2 wreaths.

I used some ivy vine greenery and cabbage roses in one and attached a handmade burlap bow.  I think the Greenery and the roses make a stunning combination.


The 2nd wreath I used Hydrangea with a touch of pink in them and added some cabbage roses.  I absolutely love the greenery in this.  It adds a southern charm feel to it.

I hope you enjoyed my makes this week.  I hope to have more to show you next week.  Until then have a fabulous week!!!!! =)

Sunflower lovers and more…

I absolutely love sunflowers. They are one of my favorite flowers.   I have a few projects lined up that I want to make using sunflowers.   Todays post is all about sunflowers.

I think I am drawn to the color  They are so happy and cheery. They are bright and scream summer.  They also make beautiful rustic farmhouse decor.

I also found these beautiful berries and decided I wanted to make patriotic summer wreaths out of them.  These are the end results.   Red, white, and blue. Who would have thought blueberries, raspberries and white flowers could look so patriotic!!!!

Beach Day

Huntington Beach has a dog beach.    Today I took the dogs out for a beach day.   All in all it was a good day.  My little dogs love going for walks and love the outdoors.  They do not however love the water.  Getting into the water is out of the question.   It was a super nice morning.  It was overcast but not overly cold and it was definitely not as windy as usual.  This made for a very nice day.

Because the tide was low I was able to really find some nice seashells.   All sizes and styles.

I was so excited to actually have found sand dollars.   First time ever!!!!!

I love to make beach art.  Some with my finds.  Some are not.   The Seashells in this wreath were all part of the finds from my last trip to the beach.  I love how they play against the orchids.

Fun filled and relaxing.  I hope you all enjoyed your day and enjoyed your visit.  I sure love having you visit.

Have a fabulous day!!! Until next time.


Non Holiday Crafting

I decided to work on some items that are not holiday related.  =) I enjoyed taking a break from holiday creations and flowers.   Instead I created some cute signs.  I love making signs.  They really are fun and so versatile.

This one drew me because I absolutely love the message.

I am super partial to coffee signs too =) So I made a few.   They are absolutely true!!!!  I know coffee sure makes me feel better.  It is my guilty pleasure.

Teacher Appreciation day is coming up soon.   Last year I did very well with these giftable items.  They can be customized with most teacher names.  I love items of appreciation.

In the middle of working away I had play time with the puppykids.   They enjoy being outside.  Their favorite thing to do is root around in the grass and smell things.

Everyone that has read past posts about my Dog babies know that Miss Daisy HATES to be photographed.  Sometimes she lets me know it.
