fabric pumpkins

These fabric pumpkins are great. I love them, I just wish I could get them to stand up better on their own. They had actually proven to be great toys for my little girl! :)

give thanks

After making this cute Thanksgiving banner...

I had to make some cute blocks too. I loving all the great 2x4 ideas out there, so here's mine. Just all the same size, but covered in different papers and notions. I had a lot of fun doing this and am happy with the results. Funny how the things you just "do" without thinking turn out to be your favorites!

"Giving Thanks" is something that I don't think you can have too much of around the house. I'm glad we have a season for it.

personal art work for fall

I took each one of my kids on a walk and we talked and collected leaves. We then chose our favorites to make our own leaf collection. It was such a simple thing to do, but they felt so proud of themselves. For a few days after, anyone who came over had to come into the bathroom and admire their work! :)

thanksgiving placemats for the kiddos

These placemats are so stinking adorable. Cheap, easy, and fun.
My kids love them because of the slots for their utensils. So happy I made them. They are one of those things that just make you smile every time you see them.

fall outdoor decor

I love outside decor as much as indoor. I am so happy with how my "harvest" banner turned out. We get a lot of wind where we live and I love how it is fraying the edges of the burlap.
Happy fall everyone!

milk and cookies baby shower

My son's primary teacher (and new friend) is expecting her first baby so we put on a shower for her. It was so fun. I needed a party to get me excited about something. I love to put on a good party, and it's even more fun now that I am getting better at it.
I was inspired by this cute party my friend, Amy put on and knew right away that was the direction I wanted to go.
I made my own printables and rest was easy. Collecting jars from friends, getting a few milk bottles, fun straws, ribbon and tubs from the dollar store, a home-made banner and goodie bags, some puffs, cute napkins, and of course yummy cookies....that's it.
