The Biker Christmas Wreath

My husband owns a business called Downeast Thunder Power Sports. Although Paul has a colorful background (motorcycle mechanic, builder of motorcycle racing engines, U.S. Marine, marine engineer, port engineer, etc.) his passion is motorcycles and engines. He readily admits that he likes “turning wrenches.”

Two weeks ago Paul said, “We live in the heart of Christmas wreath country. Everybody else is selling Christmas wreaths. We should sell a motorcycle Christmas wreath for Downeast Thunder.” I thought about the idea and my crazy schedule and told him that it was a fun thought, but that I didn’t think I could handle one more thing on my plate.

Biker Christmas WreathThe next day he came back to me and said that he really wants to do the wreaths and that it would be “his thing.”  Funny how “his thing” has turned into me chasing down the details – a wreath maker, wholesale motorcycle ornaments, ribbons, decorations, etc., all while he’s cheering me on from the sidelines. How do I get myself into these things? Is it because I don’t trust Paul to make a wreath bow? Or is it that I know he can be a bit of a procrastinator? Whatever it is, we’ve collaborated and he’s introducing the first Downeast Thunder Biker Christmas Wreath over at Downeast Thunder Power Sports. Head on over and take a look!

    I just wanted to say that I love your Wreath and that if I lived in your area I would have one.I also wanted to say thank you for the free downloads on your felt animals and especially your birds.Which I am going to see if I can do them for my mother.I live on a really small pension and this year I have no money for Christmas gifts at all so I thought I would try my hand at some small craft gifts for my daughter who is 20 and my mom whom I live with ( my mom not my daughter).So thank you again for the free down loads.I will try to get back to you in the new year to let you know how well they turned out and how much they were liked.
