Spring Wreath

A while back, I saw a wreath on Create Craft Love that I absolutely adored.  It was a fun spring wreath made from a garden hose. So, I thought I would give making one of these a try.  Of course, I managed not to rememeber to print off a list of the things I needed Read More …

New Look

You may have noticed that I’ve been playing around with some updates around the site over the last few days.  I’ve changed up some of the artwork in an attempt to create a look that I feel reflects me a little better than the previous design did. Not that I didn’t love the old design. Read More …
