  1. I so need to get pinspired! I love the mason jars and the crayon wreath would be so cute for the classroom (I guess depending on the grade you teach). Very cool.

  2. I love both your wreaths! Popped over from The Nester's after seeing your crayon wreath. Very unique. Thanks for sharing.

  4. So pinspiring! The crayon wreath would be dangerous in our house - many crayons would go missing.... but I love it!!

  6. Pinspiration! This is the first time I heard the term -- I love it! I have more Pinspiration on my boards than I can do in a lifetime. I have an entire board devoted to wreaths, both DIY and ones I just find pretty (and one on my front door). I adore that crayon wreath and am going to see if my friend will let me make one to hang in the classroom where she teaches! Thanks for sharing the cool resources. I'm new to your blog and really enjoy your work.
