Crafty Christmas Wreath

 I am super excited to write this! This was my 2nd wreath to ever make and I think I did really well. First I search pinterest to get an idea of what type of wreath I wanted to make. I didn't want one that was over the top just something simple. I wanted to not use a wire wreath but one with evergreen.
 Micheal's was having a 50% off sale which was perfect. I bought the evergreen wreath, blue wired edge ribbon, and 6 blue and silver holiday decorations. The total cost was $24.90. I came home and couldn't wait to start. I fluffed up the evergreen wreath, then I took my ribbon and wrapping it around 1 green steams and continued the same patten with the ribbon all around the wreath. I only did 1 passed around, you can do two if you like. (just remember it will make your wreath bigger)
 Next I played with where I wanted the accent pieces to go. I knew I wanted to place them in 2 different places. I wrapped each piece around each steam until it came out the way I liked it. This project I was so proud of and it only took 30 minutes to do!

Tuesday Weekly Menu Day!!

I love cooking meals for my family. I love everything from the planning of my weekly menu's, making the grocery list, grocery shopping, to Preparing the meals and eating the meals I make. My menus have not only nightly Dinners but Lunches as well, and I try to throw in a weekend breakfast and a dip. Last week our menu actually was me and my wonderful Husband eating out (week long date night)because all the kids were gone for the week. But stay tuned folks next weeks menu is awesome!!!
