A New Business

...sort of.

And, again, unplanned!

My neighbor Michelle, the one with the Kindergarten daughter that my kids love, asked me a few weeks back if I could make her a burlap wreath she had found on Pinterest.

Being crafty, and crafty-adventurous, I told her "probably."


Well, I finally got that done day. And, feeling some pride for how awesome it turned out, I posted on Facebook.

Well, now I have a lot of interest, and at least one order!




I have no idea how I start these things--seriously!


While the final product looked awesome, let me be completely honest, the first one wasn't exactly what she wanted, so I went a wreath size down and it looked perfect.  Well, I certainly didn't want to waste all that time, and I noticed as I was making it--it matched my new furniture perfectly. So, now I have an awesome decoration for the hole above the couch that I made when I took the old decor down! (it didn't match any more)

Score!


***UPDATE: I now have 3 orders for 4 wreaths (total)!  2 are done, 2 more being planned, and 1 already shipped!***

I love this! You are so crafty!

(You also must know that when I first saw the picture on FB. ....I thought the wreath was made out of panty hose! ) haha. Closer inspection proved that it was indeed burlap. :)
