Independence Day Wreath

Talk about a blast from the past! This Independence Day wreath was the second project blog post I’veΒ ever written (originally posted on The Creative Cubby) and gave me the bug for sharing my creations with family and friends. Even more importantly, this wreath still gets hung with pride very Independence Day! Hopefully, it will bring as much inspiration and joy to your home as it does to mine. Enjoy!

Coastal Christmas Decorations

Christmas is in full swing in our home! Decorating for our Coastal Christmas theme was fun, easy, and little sandy. We’re spending our last Christmas in our small San Diego apartment and wanted to capitalize on the smaller canvas for our beachy theme.

Collecting the materials to bring the vision to life was fairly easy. No – I didn’t go to the beach. Real seashells and starfish are an important part of the ocean ecosystem. Instead, I opted for ordering manufactured replicas from Oriental Trading or shopping in person at Michaels.
