Blog Hop - Celebrate the Everyday

Happy New Year!!

The We Create Blog Hop group has committed to another year of fun, inspiring blog hops, and I can't wait to see the awesome projects my fellow demonstrators and I come up with this year! This month's blog hop is up a few days later than usual to accommodate the crazy holiday schedule.  We also bumped the date back a bit because . . .

our Occasions Catalog debuts today!!

Check it out in my sidebar! There are SO many great stamp sets, project ideas, supplies, and tools in there! The theme is great too. So great, in fact, that we stole it for our Blog Hop this month! There's always a reason to celebrate, and this catalog encourages you to "Celebrate the Everyday." Sounds like an excuse to party to me!

One of the first things to catch my eye in the new catalog was this fun Burlap and Blooms Wreath. I've been doing a lot of home decor projects lately, and this is the perfect thing to hang on your door to welcome in Spring! The fact that we're just starting Winter is irrelevant - ha! The pastel colors and the fun blooms make for a welcome addition in all this white snow and ice. It took longer to put together than I originally thought, but it's super simple. Just folding, gluing, and wrapping - easy, peasy!

I haven't put all the flowers on yet, but I thought it was pretty darn cute as-is!
Lots of opportunity for customizing and personalizing this fun wreath.

I'll be hosting a class to make these adorable wreaths in March, so stay posted for updates!

Here's wishing you a fun, happy, and creative year in 2014! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Great job on the wreath! I am excited to hang mine on my So Saffron front door. Can't wait!

  2. Very nice!!! I made my first wreath ever right before this mini arrived and have been eyeing this kit! :) Not to mention how nice the spring sounds right now! :)

  3. This turned out so cute! I've been wanting to get this kit. I love the close up shots of the flowers. Nice job!!!
