How to Make a Burlap Bag

Posted by on Mar 10, 2014 in burlap, crafts, wreaths | 8 comments

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!

And continue to show you how to make things like this burlap bag!

And hope that tomorrow holds more sunshine and warmth!

As for Hawaii, maybe they get tired of all of the sunshine?!

Maybe one day I’ll know. :)
