I made a new fall wreath using some Indian corn and floral wire. I broke off the husks and snapped the corn in half. Simple, but it was time consuming to wire everything. Worth it though because I love it!

I despise the feel of raw/rough wood. I will wrap steak knives in my napkin to avoid touching the wooden handles. Thanks to the crafty genius who invented Plastidip, I’m cooking with wooden spoons!Update: After a few months of use, the Plastidip holds up great in the dishwasher. But, it will melt if left too long against a hot surface.

My dear friend is having a little girl, so her sister and I made these sweet little origami invitations for the baby shower. It looks very impressive, but it was actually fairly simple to make. Here’s a link to the template that we found: http://babyccinokids.com/blog/2012/07/27/flower-origami/

We didn’t have very many Valentine’s decorations. After a very rough day, I headed to the craft store to get some supplies and crafted my frustrations out all over this garland. WIN!
I even did a tutorial (!!!) on how to make it for my friend’s blog: http://perfectimperfectionsjournal.blogspot.com/2013/01/guest-post-diy-sweetheart-garland.html

I convinced Jeff to join me in making some Valentine’s Day decorations. We melted crayon shavings between wax paper and then cut out hearts. Next, I tied them up with some baker’s twine and called it a day. Quick and easy decorations. Jeff even said he “had fun” making these. Win win.
