Yarn Wrapped Letter Monogram

Elisabeth and I are busy getting ready for our first craft booth next weekend. We’ll have some really great posts coming up about our booth design and booth crafts for displays. We are having a lot of fun but are quickly learning the amount of time and work it takes to have a craft booth.

Today’s craft is an oldie but a goody. It’s a monogram wreath or display that has been wrapped in yarn. I think this would love great with sayings like “home” or “love” or initials in a nursery or on a mantel. So many great ideas!

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!

Adriana’s Bachelorette Weekend Floating the River

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending my friend, Adriana’s, bachelorette party. Let me tell you, we had a blast despite the unusual May rain we were experiencing in Texas. Adriana chose to have her bachelorette party floating the river outside of San Marcos, in Texas hill country. We stayed for two nights at some great cabins, Hideout on the Horseshoe, on the Guadalupe River. The best part about these cabins is you can stay and float which means your tubes to float are included and you can get off right in front of the cabins! I wanted to not only share our fun trip, but the crafts some of us made for Adriana and the girls attending.

Unboxing My New Embroidery Machine!

I’ve been wanting to get an embroidery machine for quite some time now. This year for my birthday my mom took me out and let me pick one out! To my surprise it wasn’t as easy as walking into a store and picking out the one I wanted. Turns out, I had no idea what I wanted and I actually needed to do a decent amount of research before deciding on one. We spent a couple of days over several weeks visiting sewing centers before I decided on the Husqvarna Viking Ruby Royale embroidery machine. I bought my machine from JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores, in the Viking Sewing Center and I like to call her Ruby, original I know 😉

Monogram Cork Board from Wine Corks

I made this monogram cork board for my mom after finding the idea on pinterest. I collected wine corks and got several people to help collect corks for me as well. All I had to buy was the frame and the gorilla glue.
