Three Things...

Hey guys! I just wanted to tell you three quick things....First, my kitchen items have arrived!! I was trying to keep it a secret...haha! I'm sure you have no idea what they are so I thought I would give you a hint...lol! Kevin and his friend are going to install them on Saturday! YAY!!
Second... look what I got for Valentine's Day!! Yep...chocolate...Yum!! Kevin picked them out all by himself...although I told him where to go! haha! I think I gained a pound!Third...Remember I am going to do a tutorial on how to make an Easter/spring mesh wreath. I picked up these two rolls of mesh yesterday. I am waiting on Hobby Lobby to put their Easter stuff on sale...I'm hoping it will be next week. Those of you who have a Hobby Lobby know how they switch their sales from week to week. Anyway, I am going to look for some glittery eggs, springy silk flowers, Easter ribbons, and something really cute to go in the middle of the wreath...maybe a rabbit or a sign that says "Happy Easter". If you are going to make a wreath for yourself this might give you some ideas of what to get. There are endless possibilities...I can't wait to show you my updated kitchen!! I hope to post it this weekend if all goes as planned.

Have a wonderful Friday!!

What size mesh are you using? Stores around here carrying about 4 -5 different sizes, ranging from about 2" to 24." Looking forward to your tutorial!

Where did you find the mesh? I only found it at Sam's at Christmas time. Maybe I'm just not looking in the right place at Hobby Lobby. Thanks!

Theresa said...

silly question, but I have seen your mesh wreaths and I love them, but I can't find the mesh at hobby lobby. What area can the mesh be found in? Love your kitchen. I got all new appliances for my kitchen in November. Love it! :)

Kirsten,
The email address I used for you has no access so I am hoping with my fingers crossed you will see this.
Somehere in a comment you named a shop close to you if we were having problems securing the poly flex ribbon and that we could order online from them. I cannot find it again to save my soul. Would you please tell me again who this is?
I live in the Atlanta area and Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and JoAnn's do not carry it.
Thank you so very, very much,
Janet
