Not quite the way I'd planned

So...I had these great hopes of getting Christmas cards off to all my sweet friend and family, showing off my precious children and most importantly, sharing in the celebration of the birth of our awesome Savior. Well, alas, it's not going to happen. Time has gotten away from me, the cards still aren't ordered, and I would never be able to get them out on time. I'm not giving up though. I know it's not the same, and no where near as much fun as getting to pull a fun Christmas card out of the mail box (this is the only time of year I like to check the mail. ha!), but here is my blog version of our Christmas card. We hope you have a very Merry Christmas! Love...The Lawler's.

Monogram Wreath

I found this great blog ( of instruction on how to make a monogram wreath, and I absolutely loved it. So... I was on a mission to make one of my own. My sweet and very talented friend, Lauren, cut out the letter for me, and I raided Lowe's for the greenery (Lowe's and Home Depot both have a bin of tree trimming that they will give to anyone- no charge!) to make my free wreath. I was really excited how it turned out and that it was free. I know all you crafting friends are always looking for great ideas, so I had to post this. Thanks "Diddle Dattle" for your fantastic idea!! Merry Christmas and happy decorating!!
