::Spring Wreath::

I had so much fun making this wreath. I found the idea at NatSprat

She did such a great job, I used the tuts for flowers that she has posted in here post. I love how it turned out, thanks Nat for the fun idea!

::Bows, bows, and more bows::

When my little girl was born, almost 4 years ago now, I have LOVED making her bows. I have occasionally made some for friends and family too. I really love doing it, creating new bows and finding new ways to come up with cute fun bows. Here are some that I recently made for my cute cousin Codi who is having a baby girl in May.

This one I love, I crocheted the flowers (thanks for the help Mom) and stuck it on a band. So pretty and vintage looking!

This fun bow turned out to be one of my favs. I'm not a huge yellow fan but when I paired it with the green I love how it turned out! Some simple smaller bows. I love the lady bug and bumble bee. My little girl was so excited and thought they were for her. I guess I'd better make more! Traditional bows are always a fav in our house! We have tons! Smaller versions of the yellow one. I love how they turned out!

::Organization Day 17 & 21::

I'm finally done! Ok, almost. I need to purchase a few organizational items and then I will be completely done with my 21 day challenge!

Day 17 was to organize my desk drawers. I was dreading this because it was such a mess! But, I just decided I have to get this done with, and did it! I had junk and garbage in all the drawers, and no real organization at all. So, I designated a drawer to different things I needed. For example, in my church my calling is the primary chorister, so I have one drawer dedicated to all things primary music! This helps me to keep things that way and to know where everything is. I just need to get some desk organizers to help me keep everything in place. Here are the before and after pics:

Here is my main drawer, this is a problem!

This is after, better, but it would be so much better to have a nice desk organizer!

These are some of the drawers, I just threw stuff in wherever!

This is one of the drawers after. (my primary drawer) So much better and I can see everything that is in there!

Day 21 was the rest of my kitchen cabinets and drawers. I just took everything out, and wiped them down. Then put stuff back, only the stuff that I use. I got rid of some stuff, threw out some random stuff (I didn't even know what some of the things were!) and just need to purchase one big utensil tray!

And I'm done!!!!! Yeah!!!!! That took forever, but was so worth it! Now I'm ready to tackle some harder areas in my home like my craft room, my storage, my shed and garage! Then I can get started on my spring cleaning. Happy organizing everybody!
