Spring Craft Idea

Hi all :) With this time on my hands, I decided to channel a little creativity and make a Spring wreath. I have made one for all other seasons, but did not have one bright and cheery for this season. I looked online for some inspiration, and decided on yarn for wrapping my wreath form. I chose blue, as it reminded me of bird's eggs, and found these flowers in the wedding aisle of Michael's. Here are some pictures of the process, and the finished product. I enjoyed myself!

I secured the beginning and the end of the yarn with a little hot glue, and wrapped the rest. It probably took about an hour and a half to wrap that sucker, but it's easy work..and kind of relaxing. Enjoy!

Spring Fever

I have really been feeling under the weather lately, so I decided maybe a Spring themed post would brighten my day, and hopefully yours. Since I haven't been feeling well, any spare time that I have has been spent resting. During these rest periods, I've had some time to look through magazines and websites, curious to find out what this Spring's trends will be. After doing some research, there are definitely some trends I will absolutely be taking part in, and some...not so much. Here are my finds for Spring 2011.

Looks I will definitely be trying:

Electric Pink Lips

Pastel Polishes

"Arm Candy" - brightly colored purses

Cobalt Blue everything

High-Waist Trousers

Colored Denim

Anything Honeysuckle colored

Looks I'm Not Loving


Neon Make-up
