Fall Wreath

I will keep this post short as I'm running out the door with the kids for school.  My poor baby girl was sick the last two days which has exhausted me.  I was up the last two nights with her so i need a rest. Today has been five weeks of her cast so we are heading to the cast clinic in hopes of it coming off!
So here  is a fall wreath i made for the front door.  Not sure how long it will last as Halloween is fast approaching and i love decorating for that.
I used a straw wreath wrapped in ribbon and hot glued all the corks on.  Then made flower rolls from tulle and rosettes from an old canvas bag.  I then added some brown tulle wrapped around it and two ruffles made from the tulle.  And that was it, plain and simple.
Enjoy your Thursday i know i will enjoy my two hours without the kiddies!

Wow, it has been about three months since the time i visited this wonderful website.  I cannot believe how busy i have been and now things are starting to settle down.
I have missed participating in Julia's weekly addiction.  So come on the fun and fascinating  tour of other peoples desks and enjoy our works of art.

It has been literally months upon months of trying to get in the door of the scrap room, but it seems I'm destine to pile more and more things into my creative space.  Now with some free time on my hands i hope to get it organized and tidied over the next couple of weeks.

My son is having his 4th birthday party at the end of October and i need to get the room cleaned to work on some creations for him.  This is one thing i have found time to work on as favors for his party.
My goal is to have it finished and complete by mid October so i can begin Christmas cards and all the fun for the season.
Come follow along on the magical computer ride!

Fall is coming...

Wow it has been nearly three months since i last blogged.  I can't believe how fast the summer went and now my little girl has started kindergarten.

She has absolutely love it!  Two weeks before school started, she broke her wrist falling off the monkey bars at the playground.  It was so sad to see my daughter in so much pain.  They had to put her under anesthetic and that was so hard to watch.  After about 20 minutes of manipulation she was casted and waking up.  Today she still has a cast on but hope to get it off on Thursday.

Now that i actually have a bit of spare time with my daughter in all day kindergarten and my son in preschool two days a week, i get two hours to myself.  So i decided to do some cleaning.  I finally got the dinning room table cleaned and cleared off and made a Thanksgiving center piece.

I used  dried hydrangea plants with some fake leaves and some cat tails.  I put a small maple leaf bowl in the center.  I used a metal wire bread basket and turned it upside down on a green ruffled platter. I am finally looking forward to thanksgiving but only for the turkey!  I don't want our beautiful weather to disappear and the rain start.
