And this warm weather has me dreaming of the beach, what about you? Did you ever see the nautical ship helm wreath I shared last year?

Sadly, this will be my last week in this DIY weekend upcycle group. I am finding it difficult to balance everything, especially now that I am customizing wedding invitations over at my wedding site. It makes me sad, since these ladies are so awesome and creative, but I knew something would have to give. Ya know,  so that I may be able to get sleep at some point, haha.

Be sure to check out each project, you will find tons more inspiration at each site. Happy DIYing this weekend!


  1. Katie you always inspire me, I am so excited your wedding invitation business is getting super busy!! Have a wonderful weekend – xo


    1. Thanks Amy! I agree, and these ladies are so talented! I just feel guilty for not being able to put as much into it as I would like and that’s not fair to them. I am looking forward to continuing to check out the series though, and see what they share! Thanks for stopping by!
