Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody! This Thanksgiving is extra special because we're spending it in the Blueridge Mountains of GA with my family. I haven't seen my brother and sister for two years. It will be nice to see my kids play around and goof off with their aunt an uncle. My sister and I are a little obsessed with the Twilight books and movies so friday night at 7pm we have a date with Edward Cullen. Team Edward all the way baby hahaha!!!

Here are a few things that I've made recently.

Making Halloween Tombstones

We made your own Halloween tombstones for a fraction of the costof store bought ones. I found a video that explained exactly how to do it, gotta love youtube lol! We kept ours pretty simply and kid friendly but you could make them as detailed as you'd like. (Note: I found that the spray adhesive I had didn't work so I just used my glue gun instead.)

I will warn you it does make quite a mess. It looked like snow came early this year.

I haven't decided want material I want in my planting bed so it's just sort of in limbo right now. I have to say it does make a good graveyard though hahaha!!

Kids Art Gallery

I wanted a place to display some of the larger art drawings and paintings from my kids. We have a bulletin board upstairs for the small art projects and papers from school but we needed more space. I loved this idea of taking your saved wine corks and using them for bulletin strips instead of boards. I just bought a 12' strip of wood and some masonry screws from Home Depot. I had them cut the strips into three 4' sections, which saved me time.

I predrilled some holes, put in the anchors and screwed up the strips. Then got my glue gun and started putting up the corks. It worked better than I thought it would.

I picked up the wooden sign from a yard sale and of course I forgot to take a before picture, oops. It was orginally black and said Baa Baa Black sheep with a wooden sheep and moon. I just simply pulled off the sheep and moon, painted and sanded it. I had a UL expression which fit perfectly, I guess it was meant to be, and just simply rubbed it on.

I pulled some drifted wood from my collection and added the word ART.

It was all pretty painless and I like how it turned out. The kids were so excited to see their art hanging up.

Design Team Projects

I received my new product from the Scrapbook Nook. I was so excited to work with the new line from Little Yellow Bicycle called Hello Fall. I made a 1-page and a 2-page layout and a really simple card. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I really enjoyed working with this line the colors are so vibrant!

Thrifty Finds

I picked up this house frame from goodwill for 3.oo and the bird cage at a yard sale for .50 cents. I thought they would make a great addition to my Halloween decorations.
