Home is Where the Anchor Drops Mat and Wreath

So a couple of weeks ago, I was out shopping with Elisabeth at Hobby Lobby for a Valentine’s Day wreath she had in mind. I didn’t need anything,` was just browsing. We were looking at ribbons, and I saw this anchor ribbon, that I knew I absolutely needed, and I needed to make a wreath out of it! Sometimes inspiration hits just that quick! I happened to find the wooden anchor at Hobby Lobby too, and of course they had the wire form wreaths too.

Mickey Mouse Fishing Cooler

With summer quickly coming to an end, I wanted to share the cooler I made for my Aunt at the beginning of the summer! There are three things my Aunt loves; Mickey Mouse, fishing, and beer!

One thing my Aunt Lori and I enjoy doing together is fishing. She has a large piece of property with a lake and two ponds full of fish. One day we were getting ready to go fishing, and I watched my Aunt make multiple trips from the house to the pond we were going to fish. She had to go get her pole and tackle, then get her cooler for beer, then a chair off the porch. I began thinking there had to be an easier way for her to get fishing! She shouldn’t have to work so hard to relax!!

Scrap Burlap Monogram Wreath

So, if you follow this blog regularly, you can see that we love our wreaths!! Elisabeth, Cassie and I have wreaths for every season/holiday. Weeks ago, I joked with Elisabeth because I have made a wreath for everything imaginable and now I don’t have any more occasions to create a new wreath! Lucky for me, Elisabeth and I were out with my best friend, Jill, and we were talking about the Americana Wreath we had made and Jill made a comment that she wanted a wreath like that. She said she loves seeing all the nice wreaths in her neighborhood and wanted her own. Her birthday was only a month a way, so I now knew what I was going to get her!

So we had a contest at work yesterday to see who could make the best dessert… The managers competed against each other and the team voted on what they liked best. Spoiler Alert: I won!! Since there were so many people trying the food, the dessert needed to be bite size, grabbable, and room temperature. So this was my submission- Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Bites!

Patriotic Mason Jar Citronella Candles 

So my Aunt absolutely loves the Fourth of July. Every year it’s a big extravaganza at her house on Independence Day. Everyone gathers around and spends the entire day outside…. Then at night we set off fireworks. Problem is, bugs eat us alive!! I wanted to make a practical gift for her that she could keep out for decoration and help with the bug problem. So here are the mason jars I turned into citronella candles and painted like the American flag.
