Two Truths

This week I've realized two obvious truths about myself: I'm addicted to wreaths and I'm a borderline hoarder. Let me explain. 

I had this great idea to use each night this week to clean out a different room in my house. First, I wanted to start with my kitchen, then move to my room.. blah blah you get the idea. Well, as I was tackling my closet I was picking and choosing what to keep and donate to Goodwill.  I found myself clinging to everything. My poor friend Emily had to listen to me on the phone while I was talking myself in and out of keeping things. After realizing that it's just a t-shirt and not the ticket and/or experience from which I bought the shirt... I started chucking clothes in trash bags like it was nobody's business. Take that hoarding! Just when I thought I was making serious progress, I still had crap (pardon me) everywhere that I just couldn't part with. Don't get me wrong, I'm making quite the donation to Goodwill, but there's a lot more work to do.

 I dare you to come over to my house when I'm 80. Actually, I triple dog dare you because I'm probably going to need help cleaning out my crib.

Now, my second obvious truth. I love wreaths. Since spring is popping up around the corner, I did what any logical wreath addict would do... I made another one. (This also adds to my hoarding issues). I used a basic natural wreath from JoAnn's and hot glued a few fabric rosettes on top. Now, my front door is welcoming spring and the occasional postal worker who comes-a-knockin'. 

Here's a great tutorial for rosettes! Click here

The hot glue really glistens in the sun, doesn't it?

Happy It'sAlmostFridayAndICan'tContainMyExcitment Thursday!

  2. Jordan,

    Do you make your own rosettes or do you purchase? If you make you own, would you mind sharing a how-to??

    SUPER cute! Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Hi! I make them. Use this tutorial from Little Birdie Secrets..

      Thanks for your comment!

  3. I'm a hoarder too :) But every now and then after I watch Hoarders on tv then I get with it!!! It's time for a clean out here too :) Love the wreaths!
