Halloween is coming! It's almost here!!!
I really love this Disney villain mask wreath. I have probably already shared it on here before but oh well. It pretty much rocks!
They painted this pumpkin pink (hard to tell in the pic I took) and glued flowers around it. So beautiful. I love it so much! I just ordered a flower crown to wear for some pics and this reminds me of that.
They used white acrylic paint to paint these pumpkins and then black to make a wood grain design, spider web design and to paint a giant bug! You could also use decals or rub on stickers found in the scrapbooking section. I know Martha Stewart usually puts out some pretty creepy ones this time of year at Michael's Craft Stores!
Here's another take on the wood grain look. They used a linoleum cutter (you can use an Xacto knife, too) to carve the wood grain look into this pumpkin.
They snipped the ends of opaque balloons and attached them to the bottom halves of these pumpkins.
From craftymorning.com, they used tomato cages, white fabric, lights and plastic pumpkin buckets to make these little ghouls!
I have a dream pumpkin! Our local grocery store has them for almost $60 (insert crazy face here) but I still like to look at them.
Check out this silly Kermit drinking tea costume:

So my last post was about how magical Fall is and all that, and it is. It so is. I really do jump in leaves!
Here I am enjoying the leaves a few years ago at my parent's house.
And this weather has me pie-baking like a fool...
I'm really starting to think I need more friends in my life to bake for.
Ahhh...I have a fantasy I am totally trying to make come true for this Thanksgiving! I am going to make this bad boy...
It is a Salted Caramel Apple Snickers Cake. Gosh, wish me luck! The recipe seems a little long but I think it will be worth the hard work. Oh yes, photo is from www.halfbakedharvest.com
But I will totally take a pic when I make my own version.
What else have I been up to? I have become kinda addicted to adult coloring books. Lisa Frank is my favorite.
My birthday is coming up this Saturday and so I have been busy treating my self. I even bought myself a pretty red dress...
I would say I will wear it on date night but we know mommies and daddies don't really get date night. More like yoga pants and Netflix night! :) So maybe I will wear it when I have a rare mom's night out!
