I've been buying supplies and making wreaths getting ready for the craft shows this fall.  Here are a few of my newest.


My daughter had gluten issues all summer, so I could not do my normal baking.  Our church's bake sale gave me the perfect opportunity to create my favorite summer treats. I adjusted the watermelon cookies recipe slightly, but here's a link for directions on making them. They were really cute in the packaging I found at HomeGoods.  

I also make these Coconut Lime cookies that were wonderful! Check them out and this link for the recipe.


I also love making these Sunflower cupcakes!


My daughter said they looked like mini-cupcakes, but they were just smaller than usual.  I don't know how they all did at the bake sale, but I was glad to get some baking out of my system!  Here's the instructions for the sunflower cupcakes.  It also works great for poinsettia cupcakes at Christmas too.

Here is a new wreath for the Fall!  This is a huge wreath.  Fun to make and fun on the door!  It's over 35 inches wide and really pops!

Here are a few of the Summer Wreaths.  I love working with Deco Mesh and with the jute ribbon.  I've see some quick ways to make jute/burlap ribbon wreaths, but I "sew" them onto a wire wreath frame with wire so they are more durable when I add additional decorations.  Hope you like them.  I have more new Fall wreaths coming up soon!
