garland challenge part seven.

And here’s the rest of them – for a total of 366 garlands! I can’t take all the credit because the Hubby helped, too – remember the cheese garland? ๐Ÿ™‚ Catch parts one, two, three, four, five, and six, too. Which one is your favorite? I think mine is any garland with food. Yum!

garland challenge part six.

Oh, hello there. It’s been a while since I’ve posted, I know. Did you miss me? ๐Ÿ˜‰ 2017 has been rocky so far (my car was stolen on NYE!), but also filled with love and happiness (Hubby and I celebrated our ninth love anniversary on the 2nd AND bestie got married on the 7th!). So, I’m easing my way back into writing. Today, I’m sharing another edition of my 2016 garland challenge — a garland challenge within a challenge, if you will. For this challenge inception I wanted to feature a local business for each letter of the alphabet. Perhaps you’ll spot some familiar artisans. I’ll have to wait and see what 2017 has in store for me, but I’m predicting and am hopeful for lots and lots of colorful projects; spending time with loved ones and making new friends; and exploring new skills, places, and ย ideas. Happy New Year, everyone!

purple puppy pawty.ย 

Pebbles turned three so Puppy Mama Laura threw a party and I got to be the garlandier (that’s “maker of garlands” in “French” ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). There was a purple theme! Laura made the birthday and tassel garlands; I made some scallop, polkadot, and doggy bone garlands. It was so fun to hang garlands everywhere! What does one eat at a puppy pawty, you ask? Hot dogs and pupcakes, of course! Rosamunde catered and provided all the fixins plus sides. We were also celebrating one year since Laura adopted Pebbles from the Berkeley Humane Society, so in lieu of gifts, Laura set up a donation fund. Here’s Pebbles all pooped from the pawty and all the love and attention. Fur Mommies & Daddies – how do you celebrate your fur babies? Share below!

garland challenge part four.

April wasย was crazy busy. Work trips (bleh!), birthmonth (yay!), wedmonth (yay-er!), visitors (wee!), taxes (eep!)…. I got way behind in the garland game. And May may have been just as crazy. Butย Iย made it! All 61 garlands are here for your viewing pleasure! My favorite: hair buns! I rock these on the daily. What’s your favorite? Share below.ย And follow my garland challengeย on Instagram with #ftfgarland366.

garland challenge part three.

Whoa. March flew right on by. This month was a bit more challenging and I found it hard to keep up with my garland project. I had to double up some days and Feyoncรฉ created a garland to share, too (the cheese!). Here’s a look back at this month’s garlands. How was your March? Crazy busy? Crazy chill? Share below!

garland challenge part two.

Month two is complete! I honestly cannot believe I’ve kept up with my garland-a-day project. I was already feeling behind on day four, and now I’ve posted sixty garlands since the start of the year. Here’s a look back at my February garlands. Which one is your favorite? Be sure to follow along on the daily on Instagram. Comment below if you have a garland request, too!
