Open Ended Heart Felt Wreath

A few months ago my sister showed me a blog that had a tutorial on how to make a felt wreath. The blog name is The Idea Room and she has some wondeful ideas, many that I have made a list of items that I want to try. You can see the tutorial here.

My daughter has been drawing these open ended hearts for awhile now and had them up in her room. I decided to expand on that and purchased two heart wreaths cut off part of one side and glued the bottoms together. I was laod up for a bit when my knee decided to give out and was very hard to walk or even put pressure on it, so I knew I needed something to keep me occupied and this was perfect!!!!

I made mine VERY tight and close together, it looks awesme in person. I bought the felt that has glitter in it so it sparkles :)

All that is left to do it put something on the back to hang it and it will find a place in my daughters room :)

Hope you enjoy, and make sure you check out The Idea Room.

Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #109

*****Melissa Do Not Look if you want to see it first when you get it in the mail*****

Hello all!!!! Long time no post :( I know soooo not good. I decided to take a bit of time for myself and many things have changed recently so I just needed a break from blogging and crafting. I did however get my craft room somewhat organized, so that has been a HUGE deal.

My sister and her family just lost a family member this week, Stormy, their family dog. She was a wonderful dog. My family and I have had the pleasure of keeping her at our house a few times to watch her while my sister and the family had to go away for a bit. She was so laid back and fun to have around. We are going to miss her terribly.

My mom came over yesterday to work on some crafts, I decided I needed a break from work and to use my lovely supplies that I have stacked up :) We didn't know what we were going to do, but as soon as we heard about Stormy Monday early evening, we knew a card was what needed to get done.

To get back into the swing of things, I decided to use a sketch, which always helps when I haven't been in the craft room for awhile.

When I saw Taylored Expressions Sketch for the week, I thought it was perfect for the type of card I wanted to make. I haven't made this type of card before, so it was out of my norm which is always good.

Hope you enjoy and I promise that I will be back soon. I have some birthday cards that I have to show you and a few other things.

Enjoy your Wednesday!!!!
