The Calm After the Storm

This morning dawned bright and clear after our winter storm.  My boys are home for the 3rd day and we are still waiting for the snow plow to clear our road.  Today will be an icy, cold day with temperatures climbing up tomorrow.  I am so ready for some warm weather!  My muscles are aching from all the shoveling yesterday.  What a workout it was!  Thankfully, the strong males in my house did most of the work!

Pink Primrose

 This primrose blooming in my little greenhouse gives me hope that spring will come with all of its beauty.  In the meantime I have been working on a Valentine's Wreath.  I was so inspired by this that I set out to make one for my front door.  If you go to the link she has a wonderful tutorial on how to make it with clear photos.


Supplies

 I started with a larger wreath than she did since my front door is a good size.  I bought the 18" straw wreath at Michael's.  The other supplies I bought at JoAnn's.  I bought 1/2 yard of felt in white, baby pink and red.  The ribbon and tulle I am using for a different project that I will reveal next (if everything goes well today!)  It was good to keep my hands busy while the storm was raging.  It was also good to try something new to chase my winter blues away.

So, here it is!

Valentine's Wreath
 Thank you Sarah, from Best Bites, for sharing this!  Their website is just loaded with awesomeness!  I invite you to take a look if you haven't before.

Blessings!
