Welcome

Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

A Touch of Fall

This past Saturday morning I woke up to the most wonderful discovery! A cold front had come through our part of Texas and lowered the temperature by 30 degrees. Delight! Instead of 100 degree temperatures, we were in the 70's. Which totally made me in the mood for Fall! Fortunately, I had visited the Hob Lob (Hobby Lobby) a few days before and picked out things for a new fall wreath. My other one looked a bit worn and faded. I also stopped by Starbucks enjoyed a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Hello Pumpkin Spice Lover....it's been too long! I am loving the mesh that Hobby Lobby is carrying. Thanks to my parents, I have the mesh covered for Christmas decorating, but I thought I would try some for Fall too. Here is what I did:

I purchased this ready made wreath for 40% off but thought it needed something. It was too flimsy for my taste:



I also purchased a grapevine wreath and two rolls of orange mesh. I already had some orange ribbon in my craft closet. I simply made loops out of the mesh and attached them, with my orange ribbon, to the grapevine wreath.  No, I didn't measure each one.


This is what the grapevine wreath looked like covered in mesh loops.  I then added the pre-made wreath from Hobby Lobby and secured it to the grapevine wreath with the mesh and added a cute little scarecrow:

And then hung my new Fall wreath on my door.  I think it took longer to shop and purchase the items then it did to put it all together.  Happy Fall, Ya'll!
