Spring Wreath Making

I started this blog last week, but with everything going on (aka me not leaving my bed), it took the back burner. Now that I have moved to the couch, I am able to get a few things done haha.

On a serious note, I am feeling better today. After about a week, things are starting to turn around 🙂 Now to come off the jelly and bread diet haha

~~~~~~~~

With time off from work, I made a list of what I wanted to do around the house. There are big and little odds and ends I have wanted to complete. I know that I wouldn’t be able to do a ton, but this way I had the list for when I was feeling 100%

One of the projects was a Spring wreath for the front door. Of course, saw it on pinterest

It was super easy, and with a Hobby Lobby coupon, it wasn’t too expensive!

I bought a couple bouquets of flowers (instead of one stem with one big flower~money saver!)

I cut each and stuck them in the wood wreath to make them look like one large flower.

I think it turned out great! And it brought some nice weather 🙂

Putting Pins to Use

The first step to “healthy living and not going stir crazy, was stopping by pinterest. You know all the pins you have, that you put on your boards, in hopes you will change your house, start working out, and making crazy amounts of sweets. Ok that might just be a few of my boards haha

I have attempted many pins, but mostly workouts, and so far they have been great! But in the past week or so, I have been really looking at my house. There are many projects I just haven’t tackled because of time, laziness, or no plan. So the past weeks, I have been planning. I am not wanting to overdue it, so I wanted to start with the linen closet.

I didn’t want to go crazy. I also knew that my energy level is still pretty low. I can do about one thing a day, that lasts an hour or two, and then I am done for the day. It is still crazy to me, but I am starting to be ok with it haha.

So I found these pictures, and had dreams of my house

those were just a few ideas I used to gather some supplies. I looked at target, and Walmart, but I really hit the jack pot at Hobby Lobby.

Everything was on sale, except for the large brown tote, but I used a 40% off for that.

Then it was time to assess the damage…

EEEKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So everything came out, the closet was cleaned, and then it took time to figure out where everything would go.

I also have a plan to have a garage sale this summer, and at the same time,

I took many items out and put downstairs for that! Tackling two tasks at once 🙂
