Stockings Made

I feel guilty every Christmas when I pull out the kid's store bought stockings. This year, I FINALLY got around to sewing the girl's stockings. The first sewing project i've completed without any help! or a pattern! And most importantly, the girls love them. Maybe I'll get the boy's stockings done this yr. I'll post pics when I do.

Painted Hutch



Hutches have always said old lady to me. That's why I dragged my hutch out of the garage, took the top off and gave it a makeover. I painted it white, antiqued it, spray painted the drawer pulls. Looks way better in our entry way than the black bench and shelf combo we had in that spot. I never thought I would really like the mirror above it that Dan bought for me before we were married but I love it where it is.

Paper pumpkins

These pumpkins are super easy, quick and cheap. Just cut up scrapbook paper in 1" strips, stack them up, punch a whole in both ends. Put your ribbon through one hole, tie it off then pull the ribbon through the other hole (making the papers curve) and tie it off. add ribbon for them stem on top.

Happy Fall

I've been feeling super craft lately. I had so much fun making these pumpkin boquets with the girls. They lasted for over a week and were so pretty and fun to look at.
