Did anyone else completely miss October??? I feel like it was just the beginning of pre-school and THEN......today it is almost November. Weird. I think 2 thinkgs contributed to my lost month. ONE....sick kids. Nothing ruins a month like puke and mucus!!! And number TWO...THIS....
Amongst the chaos I was able to finish up a few more projects. Nothing Earth shattering, but some fun quick and easy crafts. You know...the kind that make you WANNA be crafty again. First off was a baby gift for my neighbor. Julie is cute and crafty and nice (and brings great dinners after I have babies), so I wanted to make something....WELL cute and crafty and nice.
THIS BLOG (btw..she has the numbers available in girl colors too). THEN, I borrowed the cute note from THIS BLOG. I just opened it in paint, erased her words, and typed my own message. AND....I even managed to get it delivered to her before her kid was a month old....score!!!
Pinterest and grabbed my favorite ideas and got started. I found this subway art on Pinterest and printed it right up on my printer. I am not a wood cutting kinda gal, but wanted to make this RIGHT NOW. So I grabbed the first square (actually my pre-schooler would actually tell me it was a rectangle) thing I could grab and got mod-podging. I used a shoe box lid as my base. I had to dig it out of my garbage can to save it for this proect. I wasn't sure, but it worked great. I spray painted it quickly so that it would be a brownish color, then mod-podged on some scrapbooking paper I had around. Then I sanded the edges and put some wood stain on with a paper towel and my finger. Since it was tecnically free, I kinda love it. How can you not love something made out of garbage????
Pinterest!!! I had the black ribbon around. I actually just taped it around the jars (since I want to change them soon for Thanksgiving and then use the jars year round). The tags I printed from HERE and I just taped them onto the jars too.
this wreath THE MOMENT I saw it... you guessed it...on Pinterest. I didn't make mine interchangeable, I just glued the flowers right on the wreath.
Last but not least is our infestation of bats. I saw THIS over on MADE last year and liked it. Then she did it again this year and I decided it was time to get it done.
Happy Autumn Everyone!!!
