Hi again everyone. I know it’s been a while, but like many, I now have much more time on my hands than I thought possible this time last year, and even more since my last post and the time in between.
It has now been 2 years since my fiance and I bought our house (I know, I know, we still haven’t tied the knot), but that’s a story for another time, possibly not too soon from now. Since then, we’ve made attempts at revamping parts of the house, but only a few have stuck. I had a promotion at work, then left and started a new job, much like many of you probably have had to do. I’ve reconnected with an old friend and our friendship is now a teenager (haha…things that make us feel good, but also remind us of our age and the fact that time seems to speed up as the years go by). And, also like most others, I have started a new hobby.
I have always wanted to be, and have tried to be, crafty. When I was younger, it was school projects. I tried crocheting but didn’t get very far. I did learn how to hand sew and have continued to hone this ability since, even going so far as to make my own masks during this pandemic. But the things I attempted have never made anyone go “WOW!” until this year’s worldwide Corona quarantine. While listening to a friend’s podcast which reads a Harry Potter inspired fan-fiction, I ran across Deathly Hallows inspired wreaths in the house colors.

Thinking something similar might be fun to do for my house, I showed the idea to my fiance. Although he wasn’t as keen on the Harry Potter idea 😒, he still encouraged me to try my hand at it. While I will make one down the road for my own enjoyment, I decided to focus on my favorite holiday, Christmas! This is the first one that I have completed to my satisfaction and while my friends like it (they’re kinda obligated to), I wanna know what you think! So leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts 😉.

If you have any other ideas for styles or themes I might enjoy, let me know that as well.
Stay safe and God bless.
