5 Simple Burlap Projects

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of travel for my family. :)

Have I ever mentioned that my husband is a youth pastor?

This opens us up to so many amazing opportunities in the summer!

June was full of local camps…and July has been full of travel.

We spent a week serving an orphanage in Mexico called The City of Children.

From there we drove up the coast of California all the way to San Francisco.

{Daisy won a trip through Pottery Barn Teen for her bedroomthat is a blog post in itself…AMAZING!}

We flew home, unpacked, washed clothes and packed again for New York.

As I type this post, we are at camp Shiloh that serves children from the Bronx.

Fun times!

So today I am sharing some of my favorite burlap projects…

How to Make a Bunny Wreath

I was pulling out my Easter decorations today when I came across this wreath.

It will always hold a special place in my heart.

It was one of my first posts when I started blogging about 2 years ago.

{I can’t believe that I’ve been blogging now for 2 years…where does the time go?!}

So I thought I’d share it with you again today…

…because “Hippity-Hoppity, Easter’s on it’s way!”

Simple Way to Frame a Picture

Simple Way to Frame a Picture

Last Friday night as we were driving home, we spotted a neon pink sign on the side of the road announcing a yard sale the very next morning…

…Daisy and I were THRILLED!

We woke up early the next morning…

…convinced Lila Mae to go with us…

…brushed our teeth, threw hats on our heads and headed out the door!

If there was one yard sale there were bound to be more!

Only problem was…

…there was only ONE more.

And neither yard sale turned up anything that we couldn’t live without.

But no worries…I have a garden shed full of treasures from last season.

And today I’m going to show you a simple way that I framed up a yard sale picture for under $5.

Simple Burlap Bag

I’m not sure if I’d ever get tired of days where the sun was shining

…and the temperature was 70

…and there was a light breeze.

I’m pretty sure that I wouldn’t.

We’ve had 2 in a row and I’m thinking I could get used to this.

I do know that I get tired of cold days…fast.

Like…really fast.

I’m thinking I might try to talk my family into moving to Hawaii.

Until then, I’ll just enjoy these days while they’re here!

Progress on My Master Bedroom

Progress is being made…

…my master bedroom is dangerously close to being done!

Dangerous in the sense that I’m so pleased with where it stands…

…that I might not finish the last  projects on the original list.
