So Thankful

For the last several weeks, I have been visually inspired by so many different things I have seen on blogs, websites, and the all-encompassing Pinterest. I had wanted to refresh and revamp my front door wreath for some time, since the flowers kept blowing out and I had to rescue them.  Besides that, I was just ready for a change.  You know.  :)

So, during one of my crafting moments (making yarn roses) the great inspiration struck.  I knew what I wanted – something that would express not only creativity, but gratitude.  This is the story in pictures…

It’s starting to emerge!

Add a little banner and a large burlap ribbon bow, and voila!

I love that every time I walk in my door I am reminded to be thankful for all that God has given me.  How do you express your gratefulness?


  1. So I searched Sarah Crow Pinterest-- and while there are several Sarah Crows on pinterest, I couldn't find you. Do you have a link so I can follow you? : ) And I would love to share mine with you as well--- I am

  2. Love the banner! What is it made out of?

    1. Just little triangles of fabric. I zig-zag stitched them onto a piece of jute string with my machine. Really simple. :)
