Spring Wreath

My friend Becky found this wreath on Pinterest, so we got together last night and made them together, while also enjoying some good conversation. It was so easy! We got foam wreath forms and wrapped fuzzy yarn around them. Then we plucked fake flowers from a bouquet and stuck them into the foam. The result is a festive wreath for spring!

March Projects

So in keeping with my resolution, I've been busy on some art and cooking projects for March. My cooking project was making cornish pasties, just like my dear Mimi. She gave me her recipe to follow and I also found a recipe in a cook book to help a bit. They turned out pretty good...the dough was a bit dry. Nothing beats my Mimi's home cooking :)

My art project was making bookmarks for my mom's women's retreat this coming weekend. I'm speaking Saturday morning and each woman is receiving a copy of my devotional Tokens of Grace and a bookmark to go with it. I hope it blesses them.

One More Month to Go

West is in the home stretch till his first birthday. Eek! How one earth is it possible he is already 11 months old?

No matter how big he gets, he still likes to cuddle in bed with Mama

He's been having fun with his cousins

He loves the playground at the park

He's had his ups and downs this month, but overall he is a happy healthy little boy
