I have said that I am not very creative or crafty but I try…

This weekend my daughter and I went to Hobby Lobby (first time for me!)


I had to drive to Virginia, but it was worth the trip!!!!


I found a wreath I liked and then we picked out the flowers to go on the wreath…. We had a good time with this…We found sunflowers, pretty red, purple, yellow, and white flowers to go with our wreath….


Look what we did!!! I am really proud of what we did. I have only made one other wreath…… Not to bad for someone not very crafty….




I even hung it on my door…..(Don’t really care what the neighbors think) I am ready for Spring/Summer….


Oh! It snowed this morning, but my wreath looks Spring/Summer.... I am just trying to give Mother Nature a hint....Do you think she will listen????

You did a FABULOUS job. I love all the colors you picked out. It does look very springy on your door. Maybe mother nature will get a clue. Hugs, Marty

Lynette said...

You and Emily did good - love all the colors and I'm with Marty - "Hellllloooo, Mother Nature - can you send some spring our way now?"

Glad you got to visit Hobby Lobby!!

Staci said...

It looks fantastic! You all did a great job. I love Hobby Lobby but I am not crafty at all, pretty much the only crafy thing I do is scrapbook. It looks great hanging on your door ;)

Kristen said...

I hope she listens...she read my blog post about the rain!

You did a really good job with the wreath!

This look great! I hope Ma Nature takes the hint, I am so ready for spring! Kathy (and don't you just love Hobby Lobby? We finally got one here much to my hubby's chagrin)

You're so not by yourself! I love some Hob Lob, but it's a field trip for me too!

Mrs. Jelly Belly said...

I wish I had a HL nearby. You did a great job on the wreath - very springy!

Welcome to SITS - I hope you will enjoy it as much as we all do!

Hi and welcome to SITS! I'm with the Welcome Wagon and we're so happy you've joined us.:) You'll love it! The wreath is GORGEOUS, you did a great job. I wish I was more crafty but I can definitely appreciate others' good work.:)

K said...

I really hope mother nature takes the hint.

I am really NOT crafty (and I don't usually even try). I think your project looks like Martha Stewart did it. The wreath looks great.

Welcome to SITS! I hope you find lots of new blog friends.

Joy said...

You did a great job! I love how it's already hanging on your front door. ;o)

Welcome to the SITS community!

WishTrish said...

And you say you're not crafty! Au contraire! There's no way I'm crafty enough to do that! I'm so impressed!

Just dtopping in to say "hola" from SITS. Welcome to the SITS world!

Hi Lori! I found out about ya over at Lynettes. Welcome to blogdom! Your wreath looks great! And if that helps to bring spring on more quickly? I'm setting up my front porch like a bower! *winks* I am sooo ready for spring!*winks* Vanna

greedygrace said...

Love the wreath! I am so jealous! There's no Hobby Lobby near me, and people talk about in blogland all the time! I really feel like I'm missing out!

Welcome to SITS! Hope you have fun with us!

sandy said...

That is a very pretty wreath! Maybe if I put something like that on my door spring will come more quickly!

I stopped by as part of the SITS Welcome Wagon! I'm so glad to meet you! I hope to see you again:0)

Monica said...

Your wreath looks beautiful! Hobby Lobby and Michaels are two of my favorite places to be!

Kimm at Reinvented said...

I sure hope she listens!! The wreath is really pretty, I love the sunflowers. Good job! Isn't Hobby Lobby fab? It's really a good thing that the closest one is 30 minutes away, or I'd be there EVERY DAY.

Melissa Miller said...

That is really pretty!
It says Spring is coming.

I have never even been to a Hobby Lobby. I've heard they are great. :)

Julie said...

Hey there and welcome to SITS! Love the wreath, you did a great job. I ventured into a crafty type place myself today (Joann's). I always feel so out of place there :P

Rhea said...

I love the wreath! It must be so festive and pretty next to all that snow.

Welcome to SITS! I'm also with the Welcome Wagon. I'm read so many fun blogs and met so many amazing women through SITS. It's truly an awesome group of women and a great place for support. Welcome aboard!

Aubrey said...

Oh how I hope she listens! I'm ready for Spring too! I was at Hobby Lobby yesterday. I love that place!

Coming over from the SITS Welcome Wagon! I wanted to tell you how great this online community is! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Rachael said...

I hope she listens, I need her to warm up my little spot on Earth because we are getting cabin fever! The wreath look wonderful, great job!

I am stopping by from SITS to wish you a bright and cheery welcome aboard!

Brandy said...

Heck yeah! Bring on Spring! I'm so ready...

Dropping by from SITS...welcome!

tardevil said...

Sorry you've had a headache. Lynette & I talked about migraines b/c we both have them. Maybe they run in the family.

~Ronda~ said...

Beautiful wreath!! Oh, and If you can get her to listen, you be sure and blog me back, cause I'm gonna do the same thing!! Thanks for visiting, and hope to see ya again soon!!

Ann On and On... said...

I hope she will listen, it isn't fun in the cold/snow.

Beautiful wreath, it's your door you can do what you want to, right! H.Lobby is fabulous!

Welcome to SITS,there is always something going on....speaking of that, Just a few days left in my good smelling give-a-way...check it out if you have minute. :D

roy/elisabeth dean said...

Lori! I love the wreath! I am so inspired (though also not crafty) to go to Michaels today and pick up the supplies to make that! Maybe you're right, just maybe Mother Nature would say "Oh, Spring? I forgot about that!"
It's adorable!
