Beaded Spider tutorial

Beaded Spider Tutorial from Jessica

Couldn't post this before...but here it is!  Thanks Jessica!

Wicked Good

So I will definitely be adorning my weekend attire with these fun little pins.  Made just in the nik of time!  My glue gun blew up in the process.  Inspired from a tutorial by Jessica on Craftily Ever After, I made these spiders, and Betty style...attached them to a fabric scrap pin!  "Trick" out some necklaces (courtesy of my shopping Premier Designs, and White House Black Market), or "Stir" it up on a cute scarf.  Anyway you put it, these pins will make a "frighteningly" fab statement!

Mantle Update

Okay, so I added a few things to the mantle.  Maybe a banner or two...just to spice it up.  Here is the finished product.  The burlap banner was so simple, it took me about a hour total, in between the other stuff I was doing around the house.  Anyone can do it!  Oh, and my 6 year old daughter informed me that I used the word "fright" on 2 signs.  Woops!  Those kids get ya every time.  Too bad she didn't discover it until the sign was done.  Maybe she should be my proofreader for now on.  Enjoy!

A Place to Lay your Head...or Not!

Here are a few throw pillow covers I threw together.  Used a tutorial from peasy! Enjoy!  Oh, making a cameo appearance is our cat Olive.

Halloween Subway Art

This project was inspired by Tatertots & Jello!  Loved the idea and it was a great way to show off my mantle for Halloween!

Love these fabric pumpkins.  Can't say this was an original.  Have been seeing them everywhere so decided to make my own set.  I like em a bunch!


And so the crafting continues.  Oh what a few wood blocks, scrapbook paper and modge podge can't do!  Made these spooky blocks for my friend...just a little jealous I think!  Might have to make my own set:)

Fall Fall Fall

I just love fall! It is by far my favorite season. Being outside on a cool, crisp, but sunny day brings so much satisfaction, and inspiration. With fall comes Halloween. Decorating for Halloween is a blast. Yesterday my two children and I embarked on that journey. It is a complete house transformation for me. Bella, who is almost 7, was a huge help! And it was so much fun to watch Bella and Grace really learn to enjoy this season. And although there was a huge mess at the end of the day, cleaning it up didn't bother me one bit. Will post some pics soon!
