Customized Easter Yarn Wreath with Leaf-Wrapped Cross

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Tomorrow I get a key to my little shop space; I am very excited and a bit overwhelmed at all there is to do (paint the space, paint/assemble display pieces, create inventory, price inventory and vintage stuff, hang light fixture, finish shredded curtain wall...). But I know that stressing absolutely will not help...the whole point is to have fun and use this hobby/business to glorify God and point people to Him.

On another note, I've been knocking out custom orders so I can focus on inventory.

I took a stab at a spring, more pastel-colored wreath design for my friend's special Easter wreath order.My favorite part of the wreath is the cross I designed by painting a wooden cross,
then gluing on pretty leaves in a flowing pattern.
The pink flower on the left of the cross represents the heart of God.Each wreath has a little bit of my heart and imagination in it!
We were blessed with a breezy, pleasant-weathered day, just perfect for a picnic!
And maybe some trampoline/foam pit play at the YMCA!
