Thanks to everyone for the sweet birthday wishes and love.  I had so much fun enjoying friends, Seattle Christmas wonder, and the comforts of home.   I have a post about the story of my birthday ornament coming up for you.

But before we get to all that, I want to share with you what currently graces our {new coral} front door.

B made it, isn’t she crafty?

Seriously these past few weeks we have been crafting bunches but its hard to tell you… because we will spoil some surprises for our friends and family!

But when B spotted this wreath on domestifluff she just had to make it for our door.   And we already had the perfect green felt….

Go HERE for a full tutorial.

ps, if anyone knows of a FELT cutting – circle cutter out there, let us know.  It’s not too late to tell Santa!


Crafty: Wreaths August 12, 2009

B made me a wreath back in the day.  At the time she lived in Seattle and I lived in New Orleans.  She made herself an orange wreath, and I received a green wreath in the mail one day.  I love em (both, although the green one slightly more because it is, well, green!)  They are usually a mixture of different types and sizes of silk flowers witha shiny ribbon to hang it from your door.

Time has passed, wreaths have been given out to friends and family and been sold over on etsy.  B even let me in on her wreathing secrets.   Thank goodness, because this past month, along with moving and painting and floor refinishing, we have been wreathing up a storm!

Both orders have been for brides who are getting married this summer. 

The first was an orange and white scheme with navy ribbons. These three are all 12″ in diameter and are to be hung on the doors of the church.

Wanna see?



(yes this is the mystery wreath featured here.)


The next set of wreaths offered us a new challenge.  (mostly b, actually, she did the hard part.)  These are two 12″ wreaths and one 20″ wreath.  20″ is, by the way, huge.  These ones are green hydrangeas only with small white floors forming letters in the center.  The small wreaths are the first inital of both the bride and groom and the third, larger one is their last initial.

We loved  making these and were sad to see them go!  But, who knows…. you just might see them over at our etsy shop soon……
