Spring Foliage: One Way or Another

Happy Spring!

I know I have been lamenting about the lack of spring foliage and sunshine lately. Spring is very late this year in the Buckeye State.

I decided I’d fool Mother Nature and make my own spring garden indoors. I know…I know….It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature, but my patience (Mo) has run out. What more could she do to me?

Don’t answer that!

Several weeks ago, Jenny wrote about the wreath tutorial she saw on Patti Schaffer’s blog. Because I always do what Miss Jenny instructs me to, I hopped right over and read Patti’s post.
The following weekend, I went to JoAnn and purchased my supplies. This is MY kind of craft project because it takes less than an hour to complete. I’m all about instant gratification.
I enjoyed making this one so much I made one for my sister-in-law and a smaller one for work.

Take THAT Mother Nature!


I will be linking this to Blue Mondays.

  11. That's so cute! I'm totally with you on the quick craft thing. If it takes too long I lose interest and never finish it. Thanks for showing that!

  12. Oh la,
    you made me laugh so much: "Take that, Mother Nature!" She answered angry. But that is what will come: spring. And sure we all are wainting so much for it. Your wreath is very springy and hopefully Mother Nature will remember now, what date we have and start her spring in your area, too.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  13. I absolutely love my wreath although not if Paco does or not! He discovered it yesterday when the win blew through the screen and it hit the door. Paco jumped out of his skin and barked at it for 15 minutes straight! Of course, I laughed until I cried.
