Almost two years

It's been almost two years since I put pen to paper, or in this case fingers to keyboard. So much has changed in our little big family. For starters this little man entered our family in the fall of 2012.
Then in a blink of an eye he turned one.
There were many birthdays, a business was started again, baseball games, trips to the zoo, Christmas celebrations and we started homeschooling!
I'm hoping to spend more time on this blog over this new year. More time sharing our life and our journey with you.

4th of July Shabby Chic Fabric Wreath

How cute is this wreath?! I am absolutely in love with it!


I finally decided it was time to take down my Easter wreath...yeah I'm running a little behind this year. I however have very strong feelings towards my big ugly brown door. While spending many hours on Pinterest looking and pinning tons and tons of wreath ideas I finally decided upon this style.

Here is one by Sassy Sanctuary. Isn't that one of the cutest Halloween wreaths ever? I am loving this shabby chic wreath. 
What about this one by The Magic of Ordinary Things for St Patty's Day!

These wreaths are so simple to make I used both of those lovely blogs as my inspiration for my 4th of July wreath. I didn't have a wire wreath form so I used a couple of wire hangers. Cut my fabric some leftover fabric that I had lying around into 2in wide by 11in long strips. I used 5 or 6 different fabrics and they were each 1/4 to 1/2 a yard each. Then you just tie tie tie! I added a big "S" covered in Red fabric since I didn't have any red paint. Some red polka dot ribbon and Voila!! A super cute patriotic wreath.

You want to see it again don't you? It is just that cute!

What are you waiting for...go make one!
