I had made some Christmas Countdown blocks last year… but I wanted to create something I […]

Is it just me…or do you end up having more than one wreath for each holiday? I love to craft…so I usually end up making a new wreath each year. The problem is… I only have one front door. This year I decided it would be fun to hang a wreath in my vignette and […]
