Pinterest Project #2...

I've been wanting to make a wreath to go above the TV since we moved in...that was almost 2 years ago. There's a hook there and after the Christmas wreath comes down it just sits vacant for the next 11 months. So why not start with a 8 for {B}'s big 4th birthday! The theme this year is *surprise* Cars...shocking, I know! The pin I took this from used a 14inch wreath and I didn't pay attention when I went to Michael's and bought an 18in wreath. It was SUPER easy and went really quick once you got it going.
18inch straw wreath with plastic still on
about 225 balloons (I used three different colors)
about 225 florist greening pins

Pinterest Project #1...

Like everyone else I'm in {love} with Pinterest. How can you not be? So many fantastic ideas I never would have thought of myself. Not to mention a great place to store everything else I find online. It can also be a HUGE time waster ;) Luckily, I have a lot of down time right now at work so I've got a big chunk of my 8 hour shift to use checking out Pinterest!

I tried my first project on January 10th. I pinned this what seems like a LONG time ago and never got around to ordering the frame. Justin, being the wise man he is, ordered me two for Christmas. They both came broken. One had broken glass, the other had the easel broken off the back. Good news was I didn't need the easel so we kept that one.
The frame came from Wal-mart.
I used some paper from the DCWV Cafe Mediterranean matstack
For "Our Week" I used the Mickey Font Cricut Cartridge
For the days of the week I used the Designers Calendar Cricut Cartridge
I used black vinyl for the words so I didn't have to mess with gluing them down.

Now I just write on with a dry-erase marker what's going on during the week and erase and start again the next week! Will be even more helpful when we've got a foster with their own schedule of visits and appointments as well!
