Thank you for stopping by to my little corner of the blogworld. I hope you enjoy your stay. I am a Christian wife and a stay at mom to 5 beautiful children. I just love this journey with all its bumps, twists and unexpected JOYS. We have homeschooled, public schooled and some of our children atttend a Christian private school so we have experienced quite the variety of school options. We have also adopted internationally. That continues to be a defining aspect of our family. We have three sons, two daughters, a cat and a dog.
Today I followed up on another craft. It all started at the Little League field about a month ago. I was trying to keep the kids busy so I asked them to gather some acorns for me to make a wreath with. I make one each year for the public library's silent wreath auction fundraiser. Well, a neighbor boy heard me and said, "I have a whole bunch of acorns at my house. My dad had me pick them up. Do you want me to go get them?" He seemed so eager so I said, "Sure." and off he went. My jaw dropped and the other parents giggled when Dakota came back with a wheel barrel FILLED with acorns from his yard. "Well that certainly will make plenty of wreaths." I didn't want to turn down his generosity so I took them home with me. Fortunately, I didn't have the problems that Michelle at Scribbits had.
Today I took a small grapevine wreath I had and started glue gunning them on. (yes, glue gunning is a word.... and if it isn't it should be.)
Here is the final result.
I want to make a large one for the library's auction. Oh and the fabulous part is that this project cost me $0. I had all of the needed items around my house and Dakota donated the acorns. Maybe I'll make another one for him front door as a thank you.
