I was going to be all kinds of crafty on Thursday afternoon...

One of my friends shared pictures of the sweetest spring wreath ever earlier in the week with me. I was going to spend Thursday finishing up my St. Patrick's day cards AND make one of these adorable decorations for my front door.


But...

Instead I copped out, slugged-out, lazied out and went and bought the last cards I needed AND spent the afternoon on the couch with Millionare Matchmaker. Talk about inane TV.

And...

I didn't actually make a wreath either...

And now it's like 7:30 on Thursday night and I'm too tired to think up anything else to blog about...

And I figure it's actually kind of a favor to you...

Because now, since I so thoughtfully spent Thursday being slug-like, you can follow a real tutorial instead of the strange ones I generally write.

You're welcome.

Just click here to be whisked to instructions on how to make your own adorable wreath.

You may have to become un-slug-like to actually accomplish it...

...but I know you can do it!

As for my wreath? I figure I have a while before it's technically spring so I'm technically not really procrastinating...

I'm just being slug-like...which is totally not the same thing.

Sigh...

PS. Did you remember to enter the CSN giveaway? You can't buy one of these wreaths if you win, but you can still get something cool with $65 bucks! Click here if you missed entering or want to enter again.

Top of the mornin' to ya sweetie!!!

Slug...that pretty well describes how I feel this mornin'. My plan was to go into town and 'stock~up'. I go into Tiny~Town every other week to get supplies but it's been almost three now thanks to this stinkin' ful. I'm still runnin' a bit of a temp, ' Might as well be eatin' rocks and still a bit dizzy. Probably shouldn't drive or even try the 'buy out' today. Hope we don't starve! Heeehehehe!!!

Love that pretty little wreath girl!

Have a beautiful day in the Lord my friend!

Theresa said...

Well, good morning sweet Jenny! I love everything you make, or in this cas didn't make:) I am pretty sure that you are not ever slug-like, you are a busy lady!

I gotta go make sure I entered that giveaway... BIG HUGS! ME!

Very pretty wreath Jenny:) I have slug days too!

Jojo said...

Uh, hold on. You send St. Patrick's Day cards? If you got those in the mail, you are way ahead of most.

I wish JDaniel would have a slug day.

Shay said...

The wreath IS adorable...I wonder if I can work up the motivation to gather supplies.

Of course Im going to have to make mine an autumn wreath since Im on the other side of the world...and our weather is about to get chilly for the next 6 months.

Is it strange that I dont think your tutorials are strange?

Jocelyn said...

Good morning sweet friend.....the rain has stopped here and now I can get to my internet...we kept losing service all day yesterday!!!

Wishing you a Fabulous weekend!!!

Donnie said...

I find myself looking at all these beautiful things but not really doing them. Doesn't mean I haven't enjoyed seeing how some one made it. Have a great day.

Pondside said...

We all need a slug-like day once in a while. We can't be Susie-Homemaker, Whirling Dervishes of accomplishment all the time!

funny you mention making wreaths. I made (if I may say) the most beautiful wreath for Thanksgiving like hmmm 5 or 7 years ago...liked it soooooo much, it blended soooo well it's been hanging on a door off the kitchen ever since, until the other day....my daughter made a really cool hanging thingy that has finally replaced it! Isn't making art just the best?.....I know when you do it, but the thought of doing it is so wonderful too!

Your friend's wreath is so fresh and beautiful! It immediately caught my eye.

Jo said...

Everyone needs a slug day every once in a while. I had one a while back and it was wonderful :)

I love this little wreath. I wish my boys were a little more into crafts.

Sue said...

I've been a bit of a slug myself lately.

Is your sore jaw feeling any better?

Willoughby said...

The wreath is adorable!

I'm feeling rather slug-like, myself. Once spring finally arrives, I think I'll be fine.

How is your mouth/jaw? I hope you're feeling better!

Busy Bee Suz said...

The wreath is pretty...but really, what if you have to fix up one of your millionaire blog friends? You need to know how to do that as well.

What a sweet wreath! I need to make one of those. But at this point, since a move is impending, I think "what's the point?" Sigh. Maybe I am feeling a bit sluggish as well.

That wreath is adorable. I actually thought it was made with real live grass. DUH! I never thought it was yarn. I want to make one too! I've got that page bookmarked, but I probably won't get to it for a while.

Yhe nurse just came in and said, "I've got a stack of cards for him." He's sound asleep, but they'll be waiting for him when he wakes up. THANK YOU SO MUCH JENNY! (You keep making me cry.)

Hope the infected bone is getting better and that's not why you're having a slug-like day.

Country Dreaming said...

It will be ok.
You'll get there. Sometimes being a slug is just what has to happens.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Pixie said...

That wreath is too cute!

And don't worry I'm in the slug club too...I'm behind 3 knitted blankets 0_o

knitwit said...

Thanks for the link--I totally need a wreath for my door! And thanks for stopping by my blog so I could find yours!

Holly said...

I might just possibly be able to give up blogging if I could watch Bravo all day long (and not be interrupted) they are the masters if inane TV and unfortunately I am addicted.

Super cute wreath...I wont even pretend I am going to make it, but I am goignt o check it out because it is so darn cute!

Sometimes being a slug is exactly what is needed!

I made the wreath yesterday (Sunday) evening. I used white daisies and yellow quilt pins instead of the pink. I am NOT a crafter, but mine turned out well and it is hanging on the front door. The only problem was the yarn kept tangling coming out of the skein.

I'm making another for my Mom.

Jennifer said...

We all have lazy days. :) Today was the first weekday of my Spring Break and I slept until 3:30. :D
