Shades of Pink...or Not.

Despite the best efforts of my 2 toddlers (who I love and adore), I  should be able to finish all of the wreaths that a local  store  ordered, on time. 

I'm sorry if you're getting bored with all the wreaths "hanging" (ha!..uh, never mind) around these parts lately.  I promise that I have some furniture goodies on the way...I just need time to add the finishing touches.

Out of all the wreaths I've done so far, this one is my favorite...don't you think it's perfect for Valentine's Day...or a wedding, perhaps?
 

This wreath was featured by Courtney at French Country Cottage - if you haven't visited this blog, you're missing out - it's beautiful!  Thanks to Courtney!



I've had a lot of  requests for a tutorials on how I dye the coffee filters, and I'll try to get one put together soon. 

And here's another that the shop ordered...based on this design, but using coffee-dyed filters and book pages.  So, if your valentine isn't so much into pink, you could make this more neutral option:
 




If you're new to my blog and are interested in seeing more wreaths I've created, the best place would probably be my Etsy shop. 

Also, I have created a couple tutorials on how to do a basic coffee filter wreath and how to create the rolled paper flowers wreath.  The coffee-dyed wreath above is just a mixture of the 2 styles.  Now that I've done a lot more, I've changed things a little, and will explain further in an upcoming tutorial.

I'm always available to answer questions, so please don't hesitate to comment or email me.  I have about a bajillion flowers to make, so I'm off....but I miss all of you and haven't had as much time to check out other blogs, so if you have time, please let me know what you've been up to.

I'm plan to share at some of these parties:

TUESDAY:

WEDNESDAY:

I'm with you on that wreath, Erin! Gorgeous..... Can I have one in blue? How do you get things done with a couple of little people running around? I have trouble keeping up and it's only me and the husband and life. LOL
