Well, it's finally here...FALL! It's been incredibly hot here lately...every day for the past 2 weeks, it's gotten to just over 90! However, today it is soooo crispy and cool ~ it feels like Fall, so I'm taking advantage of this moment (because it won't last long), and having some Fall Fun!
Do you like the wreath I made for my front door? If you don't thats "OK", just don't tell me ~ I'm really sensitive! LOL... BUT, if you do like it, can win one just like it!!! WELL,...sort of.

Ok let's all sing-a-long ~
"How much is that doggie on the door step...the one with missing can't have the doggie on the door step...that sweet little girl ain't for sale!"
~ you don't know that version?

Ok, ok, back to the giveaway!
I have packaged up ALMOST everything you'll need to make this pretty Fall wreath...ribbon to hang it with, flowers, leaves, little orange ball seed thingies, and the sparkly butterfly for a little "bling". I'll also include step-by-step instructions with photos to help you along the way.

Here's what's NOT included...but you're gonna need this stuff...

Hot glue gun (yup, you're gonna need glue sticks too)
Wire cutters
Creative Music...
YES, you NEED that! I got this CD at the dollar store, and it "inspired" me to create!
Last but most certainly NOT least, you will need a grapevine wreath ~ I got mine for $5.00 at Old World Pottery. Sorry, I thought packaging that might be a bit challenging!


A box of Starbucks Chai Truffles...because who can possibly create something without chocolate???


A container of Sweet Cinnoman Tea from "Boston Tea Party"...because it's Fall and this sounded REALLY good!

instruction. For the time will come when they will not endure sound
doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for
themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their
ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths."

  12. Hi Kathy! what a great give-away! I love your wreath. If I win I would try to make date with my daughter-in-law to make a wreath for each of us to hang on our front doors. We could use your step by step instructions and buy a few more leaves, flowers, etc and make 2--one for each of us.

  13. Oh that is lovely!!



    I have everything except the cd. Hmmm. When I first *glanced * at the cd, I thought it said Italian men. Which I thought slightly odd, but I gathered Italian may very well sing well! lol. Then I re-looked when I finished the post.
