In my last post I talked about feeling crafty...wow was my last post really that long ago! I swear I get busy and start running around. I then start a few blog post a month that never get published. I think of things to blog about all the time, but when I come to type it out it never goes as planned. Life takes over and I get side tracked and before I know it it's been almost a month since my last post. I wish I could say I've been up to something brilliant, but in all honestly I've just been running around doing mommy and wifely duties, which I guess in itself is pretty brilliant.
Oops back to the subject at hand...crafts. So I've been feeling crafty. I've been to Michale's twice in the past week. I have purchased things for two wreaths, and for some magnets I plan to make. The magnets are taking me a little longer to get together because I can't find the magnet sheets to work on them. They will be used for some organization I plan on doing, but more on that in a later post.
In my last blog post I posted a picture of a cupcake liner wreath that I loved. The one shown was specifically for Valentine's day, but I ended up buying different liners, and it will now be my Easter wreath! I had so much fun making it, and found it to be super peaceful and calming. No fear baking is not taking a back burner to crafting, but it is nice having a calming hobby that won't expand my waist line as well!
It took me a few tries to figure out how to bunch up the cupcake liners but after a quick discussion with Jess I got it down!
It was beautiful and lovely and sat on my table for two days as is. It was lacking something but I wasn't sure what to add. I finally made it back to Michale's today and this is what I ended up with...
I am in love with the finish product. Of course I had to add butterflies to it. I almost walked out without the butterflies, but on my way to the register I saw all their spring bouquets on display and saw butterflies in them, and just knew they were SOMEWHERE in the store. I did one more walk through and found them! They add a special touch to the wreath don't you think! I will hang it up tomorrow, but I'm already sad that it will have to come down after Easter. I'm already trying to figure out how I will store it so I can use it again next year!
