Tutorial for making a Lamb's Ear Spring Wreath

Kim Brush2 Comments

I’m sharing a simple spring flower wreath to make as you wait for your flowers to bloom!

I have a love affair with sunshine. Spring and summer are my favorites! No more cold feet and freezing when I go outside! But the best of all is the color of spring and all the flowers that are popping up in my flower gardens! So far there is only crocus and daffodils so while I wait for the real thing I’m getting out my spring decor to enjoy! I don’t have anything springish for my door so I’m trying a couple of styles to decide what I like!

DIY Personalized Christmas Ornaments

Kim Brush4 Comments

Our family LOVES to make gifts for others at Christmas. It’s economical and it makes it extra special when it’s handmade! We also have a tradition of a new ornament each year for everyone so these DIY Jenga Ornaments are perfect as they are handmade and cost very little to make!

As with many of my crafts I started with the items in my home and then went to the Dollar Tree for the rest of my supplies. I’m always surprised what I find there! What doesn’t surprise me is the great bargains!

DIY Bless You Mason Jar Tissue Dispenser

I have a confession to make. Mason jars are my addiction. I can't NOT buy them at a garage sale. My daughter says that I have "jar" a problem. She's probably right.  Last summer I started up-cycling some of my "extra" jars (Translate: I had run out of space and needed to share some of the love with friends) into Bless You jar tissue dispensers!
