Authentic or Faux — My Forsythia Struts Its Stuff

Igot so excited when I rounded the house this weekend to find my forsythia bush blooming! I immediately cut several stems to take the place of the faux flowers I wrote about only days before on my post “Five Tips for Displaying Faux Flowers.”

This cheery card is a perfect way to brighten someone's day. . . complete with a little shaker surprise!

Country Cuteness from Mom’s Garage

I took an old canning jar, a partial can of off-white spray paint, twine and twigs and quickly whipped up a cute little country-style home decor.

    Happy Fall Blocks with a Winter Twist

I used the row across the middle which consisted of the color yellow, clouds and a paper clip. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. . . or not so much. I spent hours on this freestyle layering technique (something I haven’t done much of) and completely trashed my craft room to create this one little scrapbook page. While it may be just one picture and one page, it’s one that will warm my mama heart for years to come.

    Black Tutu Easy Halloween Wreath

    Recently I posted some great Halloween wreath ideas hoping to spark my own creativity in the matter, and I’m happy to report that I actually picked my poison (don’t mind my Halloween reference) and put together my new favorite (and only) Halloween wreath. I love this simple black tutu wreath with the pop of orange ribbon and discovered that it was super easy to complete. It only took three ingredients, a pair of scissors and a few hours in front of the TV to make this fun project, and I am super happy with the result. Materials: 9.8 inch wreath form (or similar size) 100 yards of black tulle (probably won’t use all…
