Patriotic front door time!

I still had my spring wreath up until earlier this week and I decided it was time for an update.  I had already replaced the flowers that weren’t doing very well in the heat and I wanted the rest of my front porch to look nice too so I grabbed some things at Joann’s on Thursday.

This is what it looks like now!  The wreath is pretty simple and I just made with with things that were on sale at Joann’s.
This little sign was half off at Joann’s too and it cost me less than $10.  I really like how it looks there.

The wreath.  Pretty simple, but I like it.  You can definitely see that red, white and blue when you drive by :)

To the left of the door.  We got the big (and very heavy) letter “B” from one of Glen’s brother’s.  

My new (and not dead) flowers!  The flags came three for a dollar at Target.  I bought the moisture control soil and it really seems to be helping.  Everything in the yard has a bubbler, but these are by the door and have to be watered with the hose.  It’s nice that they don’t have to be watered every single day to keep them from dying.
Well, I hope you like it.  I do!

Busy, but still here!

I feel bad when I go a little while without crafting and have nothing new to post.  This time, however, I have actually been crafting a lot, but it’s either stuff that I can’t share yet, or it’s stuff that’s keeping me so busy that I’m not posting like I should.  Sorry about that!
Today I had a little time so I decided to take the stuff I bought for a new spring wreath and glue it together 🙂  I made us a new wreath for the front door last year, but a little bird decided that it would be the perfect place to build a nest.  I had to start over this year!
So…here it is!

 You may have noticed that I have a thing for orange right now.  I liked the spring bunch of flowers with the orange in it, and I already had the ribbon from Costco, so that’s what I went for.  Last year’s wreath was pink and white.  I guess we’ll see which color combo the birds like more.

My flowers are still alive by the front door too!  That’s pretty nice considering that I planted them in October or November.
I’ll be back soon with more projects that I can share 😀
