#DIY Spring/Easter Wreath

I am the queen of purchasing dollar store wreaths. I think I have owned every one they have had at one point or another. This year, I just couldn't find one I liked. They were either too big, or not exactly the colors I wanted. So to stop the picky nature I have, I decided to make my own. Here is what you will need if you want to as well.
I bought all this stuff at Michael's. The smallest ring I could find, green ribbon, a glue gun and sticks, plus the flower bunch. Also not shown, I used the elastic ribbon from Christmas time as a hanger. You will see that at the end.
First you take the ring and wrap the green ribbon around it. I used some glue to hold down the end before wrapping, just to secure it.
So you have it wrapped and ready.
Next you cut the stems of the flowers. You won't need the bottom parts with the leaves, just the top part with the flowers.
See the seams where you wrapped the ribbon around the ring? That is where you will gently push the flower ends into. I put flowers in every other one or every third one. That spreads them out some and doesn't make it too busy. You can glue the edges down after you put the flowers in, but if you put them in far enough, you shouldn't have to.
Then, it should look like this:
You can see the elastic green Christmas ribbon now. I used the glued part in back to gently slide the elastic ribbon through and create a hanger.
It's fastened and holds up nicely. It took me only a few minutes to make and the materials were inexpensive.
I really like the finished wreath. It looks great on my door. 
So tell me, will you get a wreath for your door, or make one of your own?

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
