Do you ever just feel like you need to do something artistic just to give your hands something to do and maybe calm your mind a bit? Well I had alot of that going on today. I happen to go over to Big Lots to see if they had anything that I might help me fix my kitchen window issue. (I am currantly in search of a good curtain for the back window and also one of those spring tension rods.) I though I might be able to find these at Big Lots, so I walked in and did find a rod, which was great! I also found something that might work for the back window, but I am going to have to do a bit of sewing on it first. Once I found what I specifically was looking for, I wondered into the Halloween decorations, which I just love. Next to them of course are Christmas decorations, which I feel is a bit early for, but whatever. I was looking at their fall wreaths and thought that this would be something nice to hang on the door. I looked at the ones that they had, and while reasonably priced, they just didn't seem to have a whole lot of creativity. So I thought that this might be a nice little addition to my journey of becoming a good homemaker. Good homemakers have pretty holiday decor and can make it themselves right? Well this was it. I was going to make a pretty wreath for my front door. I went to Michaels and found all of the fall silk flowers 50% off! Must be a crafty calling! So I picked out some flowers that I liked, as Samantha is beating me with a bunch of glittery fall leaves and brought them home. I put Samantha up for her nap and got started on my project. I turned the tv to the 90's music choice station and I was set. I started arranging the flowers and leaves and little berry type things in different ways and got to a point where I think it came out way better than those ones at Big Lots. Here is a picture of my creation. What do you think?
