A couple of St Paddy's wreaths

Seriously, I love playing with this deco mesh stuff for wreaths.  It's so much fun.  I made a couple of wreaths for St. Paddy's Day. 
This one I made for my manicurist.  There will be one for every season for her.  

This one is still up for grabs folks.  It's about 24" across has a metal pot of gold and great sparkly ribbons.  The lettering on the pot is glittered as well.

Road Trip and Some New Places for Me

I've been itching to get out for a road trip for some time now.  Timm's ATV needs to get a new battery...good's under warranty.  Monday, I headed up to Cedar City with Cassy to get the new battery.  It was such a pretty day...warm and sunny.  

I used to sell my crafts in Cedar City at the Cedar Antique and Craft Mall.  Gosh, I miss those days. I've been wanting to find some new stores to add to my day trips to St. George and Cedar.  Most of my favorites have gone by the way side.  :( 

Last time I was up that way I found Dandelion Wishes in St George.  It's a scrapbook/crafty store.  They had some wood, finished goods, great ideas and more. This time I found some good Christmas nativity pieces...I know it's only February but we crafters have to start early.  Cute, huh.
Snooping around on Facebook last week I found out that Wood Creations recently opened up a store in Washington.  It's like Vegas and Henderson...they run right into each other.  I jumped off at Green Springs (I always refer to it as exit 10) and found my way to my newest favorite place...Wood Creations Dixie.  
I purchased some cute kits with the plans on making them for some classes, shows, Etsy, etc.  Unfortunately, they only stock the current upcoming holidays but I can hunt down some ideas from last season on the web.  
I think I'll be keeping this one for me. 
I thought this one was adorable.  
I guess I have some work to do now.  

I have to admit, I didn't hit some of my normal stops.  As much as I love and adore Cassy, it is more difficult to shop with her.  Maybe God meant that for me this week.   :)  

There were some other places I'd like to check out but that will have to wait until the next trip.  If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
