Hello! Today, let’s take a look at my latest Flower Crafts. Here, you will find recipes, wreaths, floral arrangements, and more to create for your beautiful home.
It’s about time we step out of hibernation and embrace the current season by decorating, crafting, and baking new ideas.
It has been one of my favorite weeks of March since this week, on the blog, has been all about flowers.
I love flowers (as you can tell), and I can’t wait to show you my most recent projects. Let’s get started.
Hello there! Are you a baker, crafter, decorator, or all of the above like me? Whatever your passion is, I have something here for you to make.
Switching it up for spring has never been easier since all the inspiration is already here in this post.
Without further ado, here are all of my latest and favorite flower crafts from the blog to make you enjoy the season even more than before.
Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 59
How are you doing? I don’t ask this enough on my blog, and it needs to change.
So, how are you?
During this time, it’s challenging to know between the pandemic still existing and the horrific events occurring in Ukraine. Nevertheless, I hope you, your family, and your friends are doing well.
To possibly lift your spirits, I have a bunch of flower crafts waiting for you to make them. And when I say there’s a “bunch,” I’m not lying. In this post, you will find cake inspiration, DIY wreaths, simple floral arrangements, floral pillows, and MORE!
A Personal Note from Janine
I dream of a backyard of flowers this spring and summer. And the funny thing is that I probably won’t have much in the way of garden roses since our backyard is all torn up right now.
Since December, we have begun a long-awaited patio remodel. During the holidays, we had bulldozers and mud everywhere, and our contractor unearthed our pink tile and our pool decking.
We are finally in the final stretch, and the sanded marble tile is halfway installed. So, maybe in a month, we will have our yard back.
So far, my roses are enjoying their sunny spots in the yard. So maybe I might have some blossoms if I’m lucky. I’m hand watering them since they had to turn off our sprinkler system, so thank goodness we are getting rain today.
In a few months, I’ll share our remodel with you all.
But, in the meantime, thanks so much for joining me today. Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, and let’s chat.
