Wreathing @ 1am

Yesterday was a very productive day. I worked in the morning from 7am-9:30am. After work me and Anthony drove to Smithfield for my cousins wedding. On our way home from the wedding I picked up some yummy smelling wax from Tai Pan. Once I got home I cleaned the bedroom, front room, and kitchen. The house smells like pumpkin spice and I couldn't have been happier with my productivity. After I finished working I picked up some items at Roberts. At home with my craft goodies I put some headphones on and jammed out along side some paper, modge podge and my wreath that I dug out of the storage cubby. This is the final project. Around 1am-ish I finally hung the wreath outside.

Looking back I think I would get a bigger letter. Also, font of this "L" is wrong. I hate how the horizontal part is so short. I want to do another one. It was super easy and fun to do. Maybe I will make one for Mom, Sister and Sister in-law for Thanksgiving. A Halloween one would be adorable too. I wish wreaths weren't so expensive. Does anyone know a cheap place to find some? Luckily I had one. I looked at Roberts and the one I loved was $50!!!! Insane!

On a side note, when I showed Anth his response was "Oh, good! So when someone comes to kill us they will know whom they are killing."  It sounds like Anthony has been watching too many datelines with me....

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

Linds, I LOVE IT!!!! I want to make one with our name. I know what you mean about wreaths being expensive. I think $50 is actually kind of decent. If you buy like a berry vine and make one yourself it is so much cheaper. you can get those for like 15 to 20 dollars. I think you should have a CRAFT party and invite me :)

That is soooo cute!!! I want to make one now too, but probably wont. I always need a buddy to do crafts with I know its lame. Wreaths really are way too expensive. Oh invite me too :) lol

Very Cute Wreath! And by the way, if someone was going to kill me I would at least want them to know my name first. It is the polite thing to do.

Ahhh stop it! You must savor summer! That is a cute wreath... I'm jealous. I have no cute decorations.

Check TJ Maxx. I saw several berry wreaths for $12-$15 when I was there yesterday. I was in Logan, of course, but you may have some luck there.

Yes, it is an awesome feeling. I totally didn't want to work today, but I managed to drag myself out of bed and go.
