August Publication!

Hello!  It's a long weekend here and we are having so much fun!  We spent it at the cabin with a lot of my husband's family.  The town where the cabin is close to has Family Fun days this weekend with a lot of fun activities for the kids!  On Friday night there was a fantastic firework show, since it's a small town we got to sit as close as was allowed and wow are they amazing up closer! 

Today I have an August Publication to share!  It's from Create: For the Home Idea Book!  It's my first ever wreath published! My first and actually only time submitting a wreath!  It's one of my favorites!  I was thrilled to see it have two pages! Woop!



I absolutely love how the photographed it!  This wreath is one of my favorite color choices!  The teal with the bright yellow, white and greys! Here is it on my door:

I've been asked lately how I started with the wreath making!  Well in December a few friends were discussing gifts they were making for Christmas.  Besides cards I didn't really make anything that was gift worthy, and I had done cards a lot!  I knew I was crafty and I thought to myself if they can do it I should to!  And I saw a wreath on Pintrest and I made one for my MIL and she loved it!  The whole family did and so did Chad's grandmother so than I made her one for Christmas!  Made my mother one and at a Christmas party a good friend told me she wanted me to make her mother one and well it snowed balled from there!  I get a lot of orders from them and I also make ones I like myself!  :>  I have more to share since I have been working on a few!  Hopefully soon I will open an etsy store!
