My First "At Home" Craft
Well today is my first day as a "housewife" or work at home mother (although the baby is still cooking). I've successfully managed to wake up early; re-organize the kitchen pantry; plan our meals this week; make a shopping list; grocery shop (and spend less than usual!); get soaked in the rain; and then come home and put away all of those pesky, soaking wet groceries.
I am also in the process of finishing up housework and I've got a nifty meal planned for tonight. Fingers crossed that it comes out good! In addition to all of this so far, I've also managed to craft up my first wreath. I wanted something very simple that could stay out for all seasons until I get bored and want something else, so I crafted up something in about 15 minutes and for under $13.00. It's nothing fancy and it's not even a large wreath, but honestly it works well with our front door (no matter how many mental conversations I had with myself at the store about its tiny size).
I LOVE burlap and I love peacock feathers so while rummaging down the little ole craft aisle at Wal-Mart (because I didn't want to drive to the craft store in the rain) I came up with this. Who knows, maybe I'm the only one that thinks it is cute. But hopefully you do too!
Obviously this isn't my front door.
But it's raining cats, dogs and crickets...so the photo was taken indoors!
