Ah Spring! What a wonderful time of year. I love to decorate my entry area for changes in the seasons. Here are some posts with spring decor inspiration . . . 

First of all, I like this "Easter without the Easter bunny" decor {click here} . . . 
Annnnnnd another green & white "Welcome Spring" vignette can be found here.

More Church Bulletin Board Inspiration

Pin It!
As I mentioned in my last post, I am now in charge of creating a bulletin board at church every month or so. I have been busily looking for inspiration. I don't know what AMAZINGLY CREATIVE PERSON created these boards, but I spied them in a neighborhood church & fell head-over-heels in love. I thought I'd share them with you too. Here's "Selfless Love" . . . 
It appears that real chalk was used here. The "When we follow Jesus Christ, we love as He would love" quote was written on a separate piece of paper & attached. (Click the blue bar below for more!)

Church Bulletin Board Ideas

Pin It!
When I started my blog I decided right then & there that it would be a platform to share my creative endeavors - whatever they be! That is still true today, so in that spirit . . .  here's the latest I've been working on. I was recently asked to be in charge of decorating our church bulletin board. This is my first attempt. 
My first rule for this project is that I wanted it to look completely different from the usual bulletin board. I started with black butcher paper. These frames were left over from my chalkboard wall {click here if you missed it!} They are lightweight with no glass or backing, so I took a risk that they would stay. It's been two weeks & they're still up there! They are adhered to the paper with command strips. {Click the blue bar below for more!}

Decorating Our Gate for Christmas

Pin It!

Our subdivision has a pretty gate & I like to decorate it for Christmas. Since it is not as straight forward as attaching a wreath, I thought I'd show you a little about how I do it.

Neutral Fall Decor

Pin It!
If you've known me for a while, you already know that I love to use non-traditional color schemes - especially for holidays. Some years we use orange, rust & yellow for our fall decor. But every other year or so I like to use one of my favorite colors - white. {Click the blue bar below for more!}

Halloween Porch Decor

Pin It!
Happy Halloween from Wheadon House!
I have always enjoyed decorating the front of my house for the kiddos in the neighborhood. When my children were small, we would drive by our favorite "Halloween houses" on the way home just for the simple pleasure of seeing them. I like to say that these his & hers skeletons are a likeness of Honey & I in a few years! He he. {Click the blue bar below for more . . . }

A Delicious Keto-Friendly Chocolate Mousse

Pin It!
Soooo we have a wedding coming up & in an never ending effort to slim down, I am giving the keto diet a try. I'm not an expert at all & I'm definitely learning as I go. I started a "Where Did My Waste Go?" page on Pinterest where I am collecting information & recipes for keto. You can find it here.  Anywho, keto food is delicious & really satisfying but sometimes I do miss sugar. {Click the blue bar below for more . . .}

Lemons to Lemonade Activity

Every other month or so we have an activity for the ladies at church. Our last activity was called "Lemons to Lemonade". It was an evening to ponder how even life's challenging circumstances can be turned around for good. {Click the blue bar below for more.}
