front door facelift

Hello hello! I've got a non-baby related post today! During my pregnancy I spent a lot of time nesting and hope to share those fun updates with you. First is a welcome sight—adding color to the front door.

This happy door makes me smile every time I come home. And here's a GREAT lazy crafter tip > outsource the labor! By the time you research a tutorial, buy supplies, and then attempt the project (only to end up with quasi-awesome products), it makes the best sense to just skip all that. I wanted a pretty wreath but didn't want to make the flowers myself. The ones pictured were purchased from The Bakers Daughter Too on Etsy. I glued them on a wreath I owned and BAM—pretty wreath done. Low cost too! Probably the same as buying supplies. I added some filler flowers (1" was a lot bigger in my head....!), but the end product is thumbs up.

What do you think? Do you have other lazy crafter tips? Hope you all are enjoying your summer!

Your wreath is great, colorful, cheerful and done, without lots of inconvenience at this time. Looks very pretty on your door. What more do you need? Wanted pretty summer wreath, got one in much less time and hassle.
Can totally understand, sometimes for me having to go to town, find what I need, go back home to make it, I'm out of mood to make it by then. Going to town for us is not a 5 minute drive, more like 20 minutes, then the shopping with grumpy old man. Nope I've taken quicker route.
You have a baby, who's or what's more important? Duh, I'd say your adorable little mr.
How's he doing by the way, how old is he? Is he rolling over, sitting up, all the wonderful things babies do. You only get one chance at his being a baby, it goes by much too quickly as it is. Enjoy that little sweetie. Happy Summer days
