30 Days of Thanksgiving Day 5 and my first craft.

I am doing 30 days of thanksgiving. Just as a warning some of my entries are serious and some are fun ! I think it is important to be thankful for even the simple things.  Today I am thankful for Facebook. Yes you read that right. If it wasn't for Facebook I never would have connected with my ex sister in law Melissa from House Full of Searls . Melissa opened me up to the world of blogging after reading her blog. She also inspired me to start getting us out of debt with many of her money saving tips. She also inspired me to start crafting .

Here is the first thing I made, a burlap wreath for out front door.

I got the idea off of Pinterest. Here is the original pin, Burlap Wreath. I didn't get any pictures during the process I completely forgot to do it. The wreath cost around $12 to make. Originally it cost me $2 but I tried using some leftover burlap and cutting it down to strips but I didn't have enough to complete the wreath.  I ended up buying 6 inch burlap ribbon and redoing it. I found the ribbon on a 50 % off sale at Hobby Lobby.

  1. I am so glad for Facebook too :) I love this wreath. I have yet to make one. I guess I will have to put it on my list of things to try!
