I’m so happy to be sharing my new Spring Wreath with you guys. It took me a little while to come around, but I’m having a ball decorating for Spring! Fresh Spring Wreathf

Y’all know how much I love wreaths. This one is definitely up there on my list of favorites. I think it just turned out so cute and it came together SUPER fast and of course on a budget (that’s how I roll)!

Floral Spring Wreath

I started out with a Michaels coupon. I snagged the grapevine wreath and faux peonies. Seriously though, can we just talk about the faux peonies. I’ve never been really into faux flowers but every now and then I’ll pick up some fake hydrangeas or faux greenery but I spotted these coral colored peonies and had to have them! Then on my way to check out I saw the prettiest ivory feather so I tossed that in my basket too. I had no real plan for the feather but I thought it would give a bit of a rustic look to something…

DIY Spring Wreath

When I decided I wanted to make a spring wreath I didn’t have anything specific in mind. I just headed to Michaels (with coupon in hand) and browsed until something caught my eye. Once I got my flowers and grapevine wreath home, things started coming together. I had some blue burlap ribbon left over from Christmas time and I love the contrast of it with the coral peonies so I knew I wanted to use it in someway.
Spring Wreath

I made a nice big blue burlap bow (say that five times fast!) then to balance it I added a pom pom garland across the top.Spring time wreath

What do you think? Is it your style? It’s definitely different for me but I really really love it.

Now, are you ready to win some spending money??!!!

coverLove Review & Giveaway

coverlovegiveaway Friends!

I’m so glad you are here today. I get to share with you a handmade business that I’m absolutely loving right now.

A couple weeks ago I asked my Facebook community where they loved to buy decorative pillows. Let’s call it a bit of research before writing this post, where I shared with you guys MY favorite places to get decorative pillows.

Courtney (a fellow mil spouse) shared her Etsy shop, cover Love, where she makes customized luxurious pillows (and more)! I clicked over to check out her shop and immediately fell in l o v e. I included it in my post about pillow favs because I thought you all would love her shop too. Turns out, you did! So Courtney and I got together and decided to offer a giveaway!

coverlove giveawayCourtney was kind enough to send me my very own coverLove pillow. I kind of agonized over which one I wanted because really, they are all so cute! I finally settled on the ticking stripe fabric monogram pillow.

And can I just tell you, cover Love includes a VERY nice luxurious synthetic down pillow insert with ever cover. I was so darn excited when I opened my mail box to see a big ol’ package when I was just expecting a pillow cover (that’ll teach me to read the whole description). The quality of the whole thing is top notch!

Courtney doesn’t just over pillows though, her shop has other customizable products like tea towels and baby onesies.

Check out these amazing picks that I love.

DIY xo Wreath [Valentine's Day Decor]

Hey guys! Are you getting ready for Valentine’s Day at all? If so, today is the day for YOU. My blog friends and I have been working on some pretty awesome Valentine’s Day projects to share! They are so “sweet” your heart is going to burst! (a little V-Day lingo for you.)

Here’s my DIY XO Wreath with pom poms

valentine's day wreathLast year I went very traditional with my sweet red and white Valentine’s Day Wreath. This year, I wanted something different. No red or pinks… just GOLD. ahhh…. gold, well and white. It’s probably pretty evident how much I’m loving the gold and white combo lately. Last week I shared how I personalized my Gold Heart “Couples Art”. Today, I’ve got more gold and white. I’ve been wanting to do a project with pom poms for a few months now. I had something in mind during the holidays but got caught up in other things and never got around to it. So for Valentine’s Day it was a no brainer. Time to bust out the pom poms :)

This is a quick project that you can do in an hour or less.

For this DIY XO Wreath you’ll need: cardboard (or any sturdy material), stencil, scissors or exacto knife, paint, hot glue gun, pom poms.

valentine wreath
First, I created a quick stencil with my Silhouette Cameo. If you feel comfortable you can also free hand your letters. You can also just print a large “x” and “o” from a Word document and use that as a stencil. Trace your stencil onto the cardboard, then cut out your letters.

Next, if your material is not already white, paint your letters white.xo wreath tutorialThe next step is to begin hot gluing the pom poms to the cardboard letters. My strategy was to get them as close together as possible and to cover up all the visible cardboard. Continue to hot glue pom poms until the entire letter is covered.xo valentines day hanging

Then I grabbed some gold ribbon and cut a piece about 24 inches long. I adhered the letters to the ribbon with hot glue. I also hot glued a bow to the top. That’s all! xo valentine's day wreath

This would look so cute hanging on a door inside or outside your home. It’s the perfect wreath for my oversized chalkboard.

That’s not all! There are 13 other fabulous Valentine’s Day projects to check out:

May Books {GIVEAWAY closed}

Have you heard of May Books yet? No? Then you are in for a treat! May Books are customizable 5×8  80 page notebooks. I saw these darling books last winter on a morning show and fell in love. They are a perfect gift for your mom or sister (ehmm, Chirstmas is coming) but they are great for YOU too. They offer several different choices for your inside pages including 2013 calendar, menu plan, and journal.

Here’s how it works:

1. You pick your favorite print for the cover of your book.

2. Add a monogram or book title

3. Choose which kind of book you want (agenda, journal, blank, etc.)

4. You’re done!

I chose the Moroccan Lattice Gray for my notebook with a tangerine label. Isn’t it pretty? And I have to tell you that once I saw the new fall prints, I went back and ordered two more books. One for myself and one for my mom! Because as May Books says, “Life is too short for ugly notebooks.”

I am crazy about all of their fun designs. Here are a few of my current favorites.

Another feature I love about May Books’ website is their Instagram Gallery. They have tons of photos of already printed May Books for inspiration.

It is also worth saying that May Books products are all handmade in the United States. Hooray!

I’m always looking for ways to stay organized and May Books are such a stylish way to do that.

Now, who wants one of these darling books? May Books has been fabulous enough to give away a book to one of my readers!

It’s super easy to enter:

Leave me a comment telling me what gorgeous pattern you would choose for your book and make sure you use the Rafflecopter below to tell me that you’ve commented.

You can also earn FOUR more entries so a total of 5 possible chances to win! I will announce the winner on Tuesday!

Good Luck!
