DIY Holiday Wreath

I decided it was about time that I got into the Holiday spirit so, I picked up a bunch of greenery to make a wreath with. I ended up buying far more greenery than I needed. I used a 14″ wreath frame, 18 gauge wire, greenery shears, wire cutters and gloves.

I was pretty grateful for the gloves, the branches had a lot of splinters that were tearing apart my hands.DSCF2751

This was the first wreath I attempted to make and while I’m no expert, after you sort of get started you easily see how it all comes together as you build on top of each other.DSCF2758DSCF2767 DSCF2764


I am so sad, this is my wreath after the downpour we had in the city… now it’s a very droopy looking wreath.DSCF2782

oh well, with the rest of the week forecasting rain, there is no reason to try and fix it, I’ll just live with the imperfection.

Welp, Happy Holidays!


Trip to Colorado

I went to Colorado for Christmas, then procrastinated on uploading the images. My tardiness is unacceptable, but hey, it happens right?DSCF0103 DSCF0101 DSCF0123-2

This was my first time witnessing snow fall, isn’t that sad?! I really am a California girl.DSCF0141 DSCF0145

Every trip back to Colorado to see Cody’s family means we make multiple trips to Taco Johns, it is a Cody Favorite.DSCF0179 DSCF0191 DSCF0221 Boys will be boys, they always like to play on big toys, haha this is Cody playing around at his old work and making dust *Cough*DSCF0226

Lily and Cooper are pretty adorable, can’t get enough of these two.DSCF0232DSCF0267My PH100 lesson on high contrast lighting situations, this is a photo fail. I’m not a very good instructor whilst modeling, as you can see.

For any of you currently in California please do a rain dance, I think we need quite a few more days before we are all caught up on this drought!
