I'm super excited to be here at A Vision to Remember! This is my first
blog swap and who better than to do it with the great Bobbie!
Her's is one of the first blogs I started following. She always has great
ideas and fun parties!
A little about me. I'm married to the man of my dreams. He is
my special helper on a lot of the hair brained projects I come
up with. Occasionally he's finishing them up as I drag myself to bed.
I have 3 daughters 11, 10 and 9 (yes it is as exhausting as
it sounds, ie. DRAMA) and a beautiful 18 month old boy.
I come from a very crafty family, but have only found my crafty gene
in the last few years. I discovered blogging about
4 months ago, and I'm hooked!
I started my blog Mommy Time Crafts and
have been going crazy ever since. I call it
mommy time because that's what I tell my kids when I send

4th of July Rag Wreath
I know it's a little early to be working on 4th of July
decorations, every year July rolls around and
I have nothing to put out and no time
to get anything done

but it's too early to do that, right??? (maybe next month)
This was a very easy inexpensive project I came up with
for our family craft night. We try to get together every few
weeks and eat food and craft.
I bought this fabric at Wal-Mart really cheap. Each wreath was about $6.
If I were to do it again, I would go with more VIVID colors,
although this matches perfectly with my house,
my front door is a burgundy color, and
it doesn't stand out as much as I would like.
Snip your fabric every 1" and rip into strips.
Then cut the strips at 6". I used about 1 yard
total, from 5 colors, for the wreath.
Take some wire hangers and bend them round
