Today we have accomplished:
- cleaning the living room and family room (they are both smallish rooms)
- cleaning off the counter that attracts all of the junk
- continuous laundry washing/drying/folding/disbursing
- dinner halfway done (we're having the missionaries over tonight)
- dessert in the oven
Just a couple of things to share. First, my book wreath. The picture isn't great, as usual since I'm obviously not a photographer, but I love the look of the book wreaths, and I've been wanting to make one for ages. I finally busted out the glue gun and a Reader's Digest Condensed book from the '60's (after reading it) that I bought for a quarter at the thrift store.
I looked at some tutorials from Living With Lindsay and Apartment Therapy, then decided to do it my way.
Sometimes not the best ideas, but I made it work. I used a straw wreath form, and not remembering what sized they used in the tutorials, bought the largest size.
Not the best idea, but again, I made it work. I recommend using a smaller form so the wreath isn't as big and gangly like the wreath I made. I made the whole wreath from one book and lots and lots of glue sticks. The finished size is about 3 feet across.
This is one of the Valentines that I made for the kids. I pulled out some pink, red and white supplies and put them together for a simple card.
The house mini album that I made for my mom is on the Say It With Letters blog today. Go check out the post! Thanks, Deb, for liking it so much!
