I have been seeing pictures of barn ball wreaths for awhile now and wanted to try one. Here is the one I made, I used white, gray and Aruba sea blue for the yarn. Once I had all the yarn balls attached it still needed something more so I added cream colored berries to accent the wreath. Here is the wreath before and after adding the accents.
I used 1″-2″ foam balls to wrap the yarn around and more than 1200 yards of yarn to complete the wreath. I attached it all to an 18″ floral ring that was wrapped with yarn using hot glue. It went together pretty quickly once I had all the yarn balls made.
After hearing about the $0.01 penny deals at Michaels I had to check it out… who doesn’t want things for a penny!?!? Here is the stuff I got: multiple Easter and Valentine’s Day stamps, door pulls, 4 t-shirts, bath fizz, and a butterfly EK Success punch. Definently worth checking out especially for stamps and punches if you use them. There is a lot of other stuff that’s supposed to be a penny too but this is what I found at my store.
I am loving charm bracelets right now! Here are a few pics of ones I have made recently.
With the recent Spring time weather I was in the mood to make something COLORFUL! I had a lot of random colorful beads which were a perfect for this bracelet. I started with a base of larger beads and then began adding the colored fringe. This one is a total of 9 trips back-n-forth adding a fringe between each larger bead.

The paper pad I used for this mini album was Christmas from MME. On the front cover I layered paper, stickers, and embellishments. This little black photo frame I had worked perfectly with the theme.
It’s in the details…

Memories 5-8. All the numbers that overlap the photo mats are not attached where your photo would go so your photo will easily slide under them.
Memories 9-12.. with more Baker’s Twine, fuzzy brads and rhinestones.
Space for memories 13-16.
Memories 17-20… LOVE this moose paper!
