I kept this wreath very simple and used minimal supplies.
14 inch foam wreath
Bernat Tizzy Yarn in the color Dandelion Yellow
Birdhouse wind chime
White paint (not shown)
Burlap ribbon (not shown)
The wreath foam and birdhouse wind chime came from Michael's.
I simply added some FabriTac glue to the seam of the foam wreath and started twining my yarn around the wreath form. When you get all around the wreath, add some more glue for the final piece.
For this 14 inch wreath, I used the entire roll of yarn.
I painted the wind chime white.
I cut the top string on the house in half and looped it around some burlap wreath to help hang it in the middle of the wreath.
This yarn is so much fun. It is soft and reminds me of shag carpet.
I love how simple this was to make and how pretty the yellow looks against my red front door.
The birdhouse wind chime is not noisy at all but definitely gives it a touch of spring to the wreath.
Here is the yarn close-up. Doesn't it look like shaggy carpet? Love it!
I enjoy quick and simple projects like this. I completed this entire wreath in an hour.
If you are looking for a simple, but pretty wreath, this would be worth trying.
Thank you for looking.
See you on the next post.

Today I want to share with you my spring layout for my vintage sign holder.
Here is the YouTube video showing you how I put this together.
I started the layout with this new 8x10 ready to frame word art print from My Mind's Eye.
I cut it down to fit my sign and then pulled some of the Follow Your Heart paper from My Mind's Eye that matches this art print.
I also pulled other elements such as frames and rub-on's from my stash.
I cut up some of the paper and stitched it together and added rub-on's.
I had fun layering!
I used this beautiful picture of Emily from our family photo session back in November.
Here is the sign sitting on my antique hutch.
For added spring decor, I used a vintage camera, white ceramic bunnies, and a "church" birdhouse.
When I put spring decor away, I will pull out this layout and add it to a 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper and add it to my album.
I love how the layout turned out and I love personalizing my home decor.
Thanks for looking.

In this post, I am sharing the last three months of my project life 2013 album.
The black wood grain card has an Ali Edwards stamped saying (every day ordinary life) on it that was embossed with kaleidoscope embossing powder so it was hard to photograph.
The kraft heart was already printed on the card so I just stitched around it with some gold thread.
This is an Ali Edwards digital file that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo. It says "so love our family."
The "the story" is an Ali Edwards stamp that I stamped with versamark ink and I used black embossing powder.
I added a wooden arrow to the yellow polka dot card and one of my favorite family picture from our family photo session.
Thanks for following along with me as I shared my project life 2013 album with you all.
See you on the next post.

I am back to share more project life layouts.
If you want to know about all the products used on these layouts, please watch the video. I share a lot of them at the beginning.
We started off July with Emily's first trip to the emergency room. She had a little rollerblading accident but was fine.
By July 4th, she was fine to go swimming with friends and have a family get together.
This layout was a fun week of summer pics including shoe shopping, library, school supplies, playing the Wii, relaxing, jumping, and dog bathing!
In this spread I shared some new vintage goodies that I found. I took some cute pics of Emily painting my toenails while the pugs supervised. Emily got a new ceiling fan and we got new landscape rocks.
I caught a pic of a sleepover and the aftermath in Emily's room and a fun picture of Emily jumping off of the diving board.
On this layout I covered some back to school shopping and having fun on the boat with friends.
On the next set of pages, I covered a road trip that we took to The Woodlands, TX to meet up with a friend and her family.
We stayed at The Woodlands Resort and it was so much fun!
I used a Design H page protector to complete the layouts for this trip.
This layout covered Emily's first trip to the dermatologist. We also visited a new Taco place that heart shaped chips and Bahama Bucks. Emily loved it that she got a little umbrella in her snow cone!
I also captured our last trip to the pool before school started back and a trip to a classic car show.
This layout covered a trip to the dentist for Emily and some fun shopping with my Mother-In-Law before Emily started school. I also captured my scrappy space.
This layout covered the first day of 6th grade for Emily.
In this layout, for September, I took a fun picture of Emily's new flute. I captured a baby shower for my cousin, lunch notes from Emily, a family photo, my crepe myrtle, and Emily practicing her flute.
This layout captured the front of our house decorated for fall, Emily practicing for band, a fun trip to the park, Mac and Emily, and my fall decorations.
I am almost done sharing my 2013 album!
See you on the next post.

I am back again today to share my April through June 2013 project life layouts.
Here are the pictures of each layout.
For this first layout in April, I covered our spring planting, some trampoline art, a current favorite (chicken salad stuffed avocado), and some fun at home pics.
This layout covers a couple of trips to the park, a new bike for Emily, my new fitbit, my Heidi Swapp album, and my adventure of stopping school rush hour traffic to help a Momma duck and her babies to get across the road.
This layout covered my Mom and Dad's anniversary, Emily helping Andy, a walk, Emily reading and working on a science project, and a pretty sunrise picture that Emily took.
This layout covered a language arts project by Emily (lots of school projects this month), my husbands birthday, Emily playing putt-putt, playing with her duck tape, and our unexpected expense of a new A/C unit.
This layout covered Mother's Day, a text from my Dad to Emily, and a fun hike.
This layout covered a spring dance for Emily, her flute rental purchase agreement, my Mom teaching Emily how to cross-stitch, and some home pics.
This layout takes us into June. It covers school award ceremony and last day of school parties, pics with teachers. I also captured Emily playing archery and fishing.
I captured a last day of school picture of Emily on this layout. I always make her a card for the last day of school, so I included that and Emily getting her hair done (her request for the last day of school gift), a sleepover, and my summer wreath.
This layout starts our summer and vacation pictures.
Our ultimate destination was Tybee Island, Georgia but I included a picture from the Duck Dynasty headquarters and a peach orchard in Georgia.
The next few layouts are all about our trip.
We celebrated Father's Day and our 18th wedding anniversary while on this trip.
We took a lot of trips into Savannah, GA. I fell in love with that city.
For this layout, I have some fun pictures of our day trip to Hunting Beach and Beaufort, South Carolina.
On this layout, I captured a few more pictures of our trip and ended it with by taking a picture of the miles we drove for this road trip.
This layout shows some fun summer pictures with my niece and nephew and a trip out on our boat and a DQ blizzard. Yum!
Thank you so much for looking.
See you on the next post.
