I finally cleaned out my freezer... It was pretty bad, we dont really keep a lot of frozen stuff, so I was ashamed that it was so full it was hard to open.. whoops!
Are freezer is a pull out drawer at the bottom of the fridge, so space is tight anways, but this was ridiculous!
(bad I know.. that luigis box was EMPTY, dont you just hate that!!)
(just added a container to put all are popsicles & other treats in and get rid on all the boxes)
(we had so much food that was freezer burn :\ yikes)
(much, much better)
I guess I need to go grocery shopping haha, but this is usually all that is in our freezer at a time any ways maybe more popsicles & treats :)

Kaidynce Rae will be a flower girl this month, and the bride has this
beautiful hairpiece so of course K Rae needed one too Right?!
This is what I came up with.. what do you think?
I Just Love It and It Looks SO Cute on K Rae, I Will Add a Photo with It on Her Later..
Kaidynce Rae's hair is very thin and the piece alone was a bit to heavy to stay in,
so I had to put in on a headband.. but I think I love it even more on the Head Band and its more
comfortable for K Rae (and I dont have to worry about fixing it all night)
I considered doing a tutorial but wasn't sure if anyone wanted to know how to make it haha...
if there is interested I will show you how I made it

Okay so my porch was just a little bit BLAH.. so I decided to cheer it up a little by adding a few new things.
Nothing major happened here, but I do have some bigger projects I am planning for this space soon..
Here are some Before & Afters:
(just added my DIY Wreath to the door, and changed out the welcome mat)
(just added a new pillow.. the swing really needs to be cleaned, WHOOPS)
(added pillows to the chairs)
(new rug... got this one at Dollar General for $5, can you believe it.. and the colors were perfect)
(dont you just love my flower pot with NO flowers haha.. Im not good with flowers they always die... so my next project will be figuring out a new centerpiece for this table.. ANY IDEAS???)
I just added a few new things, but there is a definite big change!

My Front Porch has been a little blah, so I was on a mission to make it cute and summery!
First project a new wreath, so I decided to make a Yarn Wreath
with some cute Felt Flowers and even an H to customize it!
- Pool Noodle (dollar general $1)
- Yarn ( prices vary.. I got mine at walmart spent about $5 on two colors)
- Wooden Letter (walmart $0.97)
- Felt (walmart $0.94) depends on how big and many flowers you want though...
- Hot Glue
Step One: Make your pool noodle into a circle and tape it. (i cut mine down a little bit because I wanted a little smaller, but I didn't cut much off.. that's totally up to you)
Step Two: Wrap the pool noodle in yarn. This step is a little time consuming but just do while watching your favorite show and it makes it go much faster!!
Step Three: Wrap your Letter in yarn. Some letters are easier than others, just figure out the best way for your letter.
Step Four: Make your Felt Flowers... just follow my tutorial HERE.
Step Five: Hot glue your Felt Flowers and Letter onto your Wreath.
NOW JUST HANG IT UP & ADMIRE YOUR WORK!!!
These wreaths look cute anywhere and they make great gifts for under $10.

I have been making these for a while for all different projects.. mainly my toddlers hair lol.. but other things too! I just LOVE them, they look adorable and they are SO easy!
So I wanted to share with you how to make these little darlings for all your DIY projects too!
The ones I am making today are for my new wreath for the front door, which I will show you soon!
I will be making three different sizes, but you can make them as large or as small as you want to!
All You Need is Felt, Scissors, and a Hot Glue Gun!
(I want to say sorry ahead of time for the picture quality, it was really late and dark when I took them)
Step Two: Cut your felt into circles... the larger the circle the larger the flower
(for my three the approx sizes are: 6 1/2in , 5in, & 3 1/2in)
Step Three: Make your circles wavy all the way around
Step Four: Cut your circle into a spiral... at the end (or middle) of your spiral there will be a circle, leave it and don't cut into it.. that will be the bottom of your flower
(I cut my spiral wavy too, but you can cut it straight as well)
Step Five: Starting with the top of your spiral, roll your felt up... keeping the middle nice and tight!
Step Six: Once you've rolled it up all the way to your bottom circle, hot glue the entire bottom of your flower and lay the circle on top.
Turn it over and There you have it... a Beautiful Felt Flower!
Here are my three finished... a small, medium, and large flower!
I know the white is hard to see all the petals so I will update this post soon with colored flowers!!
