Last night, very late I was still up working on projects.  I have so many things churning through my head....I want to try this, and this....AHHHHHH I wish my brain would just relax sometimes.  It's so hard when you have these ideas of things you want to try and be successful at, but know that it takes time, money and prayers that you don't waste any of them.

I have such appreciation now for wreath makers.  I have never really been a picky wreath person.  I could see ones that I thought looked pretty or thought, "Wow they really put a lot into making that look nice."  But since I haven't ever really had the time or money to decorate as I would like, I've never put that much focus on it.  I would see where people would put their wreaths on Facebook, or I would go to the Ginger Bread House in Danville, VA. and think, "Wow really? That much for a wreath?"  But wow was I wrong!

I'll never have a beautiful wreath for my front door if I have to pay those prices.  So since I've gotten on this farmhouse style kick I'm on, I decided I wanted to try and make a couple of wreaths for the house.  I have been to Hobby Lobby and a couple other places gathering things to make them.  Well once I started looking at cotton stems and pretty floral stems the prices started to add up! Then the time it takes to put it all together.  I said at 1 and again at 2am last night, "No wander these people ask so much for the their wreaths!"

Just looking on the computer for 1 cotton stem was 8 to 10 dollars.  So now that I'm trying to make a go at making a couple of these, if I sell them that's great, but if not I'm learning to have more of a appreciative heart towards others who have taken their time and money to make special gifts or decorations for their homes.  I'm putting a picture of my new front door wreath and a couple of others that I have made in the last several days.  If you are interested in any like these please shoot me a email.
