Spring “in the Making” Here at HHC

Spring has finally arrived!!  With it has come the green grass, tree buds and growing hay in the farm field outside my at-home office/craft area window.  I’m so glad Spring has finally come because I have finally unpacked a majority of our boxes from our move and I am ready to breath a fresh new life into my blog as well as my Crafting and Mary Kay businesses!!

If you check out my Heartfelt Home Creates shop on Etsy (here) and on Facebook (here), you’ll be sure to find links to and pictures of the Easter- and Spring-themed wreaths and other products I just made over the past 2 weeks.  It was so nice finally being able to have my own crafting/office space again, thanks to the custom shelf built for me by my husband so that I may have my own little corner of the house to some of my supplies while at the same time sectioning off my own area from the kids’ new play room. For those of you that have your own work space or at-home office space, I’m sure you can completely relate and share in my excitement!

Aside from my crafting business, I have also been able to restart my Mary Kay business!  I have even created a Facebook page (here) for it so that I can connect with my customers, old and new alike, in addition to emails. I love finding new ways to connect with people!

But enough of the “self-promotion”, that’s not why I am writing this post. Instead, I’d like to just jot down some of my blogging and crafting to-do list items.  First off, I just finished reading a great inspirational book about a Christian single mom who, against many odds and obstacles, accomplished so much — it was great! I don’t want to say much more since I will be writing a review of this book in an upcoming post, so in the meantime I hope that you will check back over the course of the next day or two so that you can read more about it!!

In other news, I have been busy crocheting and crafting up some new fabric squares wreaths.  I am excited that this month marked my 2-year anniversary of my shop on Etsy! Right now I am focusing on Easter and Spring- inspired items, and I’ve been having a lot of fun creating them!! So far I’ve made about5 wreaths, as well as egg cozies, bibs, hats, placemats, washcloths (and I have a lot more ideas in my head waiting to be made!).  I think the spring weather we’ve been blessed with here is playing a key roll in energizing my creative side. (*smile*)

As far as blogging goes, I’m looking forward to trying new recipes and sharing them with you. I won’t be able to post recipes weekly like I have in the past since most of my time is now spent keeping up with our two little ones, but I am eager to get a few posts in soon!  There are also quite a few books I have on my “to read and review” list that I am anticipating sharing with you. I was hoping to write some gardening posts, but unfortunately I am unable to have my lovely garden in our new home.  I’m trying to find a way to remedy that, perhaps with a garden in flower pots… I haven’t quite figured that out yet, so if anyone has suggestions on how I can have my veggie garden in our new home (where I can grow tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, lettuce and such) I’m all up for suggestions!!

Well, I hate to end this rather spuratic and random post so quickly, but my little ones are in need of this Mommy’s attention. With that being said, I hope you enjoy the rest of the evening and will check back soon as I retake my blogging by storm!  🙂

Welcoming in the Fall Season & Our New Addition!

Happy Friday! and Happy Fall!!

The leaves are starting to fall off of our trees and the temps are starting to get cooler.  Football season is underway and my son and I decorated our home inside and out w/ pumpkins and scarecrows!  I LOVE FALL!!

This is the time of year where I get an extra spring in my step and a sense of a fresh start.  I’m already in search of a new planner after receiving some inspiration from this post — “Making a Household Notebook Work for You” — on Simple Mom.  When I get a moment, I plan on making a new schedule to organize my time better, especially since our beautiful baby girl, Emma, was born 2 weeks ago!! 🙂  I’ve had to make a few adjustments, especially where sleep is concerned (although she only wakes up about 2 times a night to be fed, so I’m not going to complain too much!).  As of right now, it looks like my cleaning and cooking time will be mostly when our two kiddos are napping, and my crafting and reading time will be during my evening television and relaxation time.  Bring on the multi-tasking!!  But believe me, I’m not complaining!! The adjustments are worth it and since I’m the type of person who works better when I have a busier schedule, I’m actually looking forward to it!  I’ve already listed a few Fall/Halloween items on my Etsy shop (see here) and on FB (see here), and I’ve even created a page on FB for my Mary Kay business (see here).  There are still more crafty creations in the works or that I’ve been thinking up to add to my shop, including some for babies (and I welcome custom orders too!), so keep an eye on my page and my shop for new additions!! 

I also am compiling a list of Fall-themed recipes that I’d like to post here on my blog. I’ve been slacking on my Recipe of the Week posts and I’m eager to get back into sharing them with you!  Plus, there will be quite a few book reviews and product reviews being posted over the next several weeks.  If you haven’t already, I suggest subscribing to my blog so you can receive all of these new posts and to stay up-to-date with my blog. Now that I’m back to my old self physically and have so much more energy, I’m excited to get back into the swing of things!!

 

Baby Emma

Well, now that I’ve briefly shared everything that’s been churning in my mind and my ambitious intentions for my blog, etsy shop, and Mary Kay business, I would like to bring this post to a close.  But before doing so, I do want to thank all of you who have offered prayers and words of encouragement during the past 9 months, as we had to endure a lot of tests, ultrasounds and worry with our little girl.  My family and I are thankful for and greatly appreciate every one of them and are happy to share with you that we have been blessed with a completely healthy, happy and beautiful baby girl!! We are truly thankful for your help and for God’s blessings!!

 

Enjoy your day/ weekend!! I look forward to connecting with you!!

Wreath of the Month ~ St. Patrick’s Day!

 Welcome to month #2 of Heartfelt Home Creations “Wreath of the Month” !!  This month’s wreath, as you can tell by the title of this post, is St. Patrick’s Day themed!!  I am proud to say that this month’s wreath had some extra-special inspiration! Our son, who was born on St. Patrick’s Day, helped pick out which fabrics “Mommy” was to use, and I’m sure you will agree he did a good job helping out!  

Country St. Patrick's Day Wreath

Wreath Measurements and Details:

Close-up of Wreath Fabric

Each wreath is made of 4 yards of fabric, hand cut into squares that are individually attached to a 10″ diameter styrofoam wreath.  The result is a 14″ diameter, material squares wreath created with love and designed to help bring that extra “heartfelt/ homemade” touch to your home decor!  PLUS, all wreaths will be at a DISCOUNTED price of $35.00 + tax (shipping already included in the price!).
