Easter Wreath

Again, I have been wanting to make an Easter wreath since last year... I bought a bunch of plastic eggs, thinking about changing them, either by paint or fabric, so they don't "look" plastic.

But then I changed my mind. :) 
I like the flowers and the little duck. 
You can't read it, but the little sign under the duck says "welcome spring"

This one is very simple. And after next week, I am going to take off the egg and pink flowers and add some pretty sunflowers I got at Hobby Lobby. 
This wreath should last until I change it to the red,white,blue one I want to hang in May. 
Of course, need to make that one... hehehe

Jewelry organizer

This is another attempt at a Pinterest craft. It took me forever to get it done. Mainly, I kept putting it off because I was intimidated....
I got the bulletin board and 5X7 frame at a local thrift store. I had the green tule that I bought a long time ago only because I liked the color. (hehe) And I used some screen material we had left over from fixing our window screens. I have seen it with chicken wire, and I would have preferred that. But I didn't have any of it.
I don't have a lot of jewelry, but where I had it stored, it was a mess and I would rather go without wearing any than to tackle the mess. So I thought maybe this way, I would be more inclined to use the stuff! lol

It's cutesy, nothing fancy, but I am happy with how I came up with ideas to fix issues with it in the process.
