DIY Fall Wreath for FREE






































Fall is fast approaching! I love this time of year.  Everyone is back into their school and work routines after the summer.  Yet the hustle and bustle of the holidays has not yet arrived.  I love that the weather is starting to cool off, well in some parts of the world it is.  I made this super cute wreath for $0.  I was so excited that it turned out so cute.  There are only a few supplies that you need and all of which I already had on hand.

Fall Mantel Ideas



I finally got my mantel ready for this wonderful fall season!!  You may remember when I showed you how I distressed this blue picture frame, and how I made DIY barn wood.  If you haven't seen those yet, you should go check them out!  Well, I really have liked how that whole project turned out.  I decide that I would try to incorporate it into my fall decor this year.

DIY Barn Wood


I am really loving this greyish old barn wood color.  I have got some amazing projects lined up to use this DIY Barn Wood finished look on.  Today I am going to show you how I made this DIY Barn Wood in a picture frame as well as how I achieved the old barn wood look.

New Look



Oh I have to admit it, I like change. Can you believe that anyone would say that!!?  It is weird because I am the type of person who likes to plan.  I always like to know what the plan is.  If we are on vacation, I want to know the plan.  If the plan is to relax and sit around then ok, I am fine with that.  I just want to know what to expect.

I am always up for a challenge and a chance to try something new.  I think this is why I don't mind change.  I have had a few experiences where the change was not the funnest in the moment, but I got through it and grew.  Looking back I can tell it was good for me.  Now, a silly blog layout is not that big of a change, but still.  I am working on figuring out my style, and I still don't know what it is.  Hopefully there wont be too many more changes around here.  Tell me what you think.  I can take it, so lay it on me.

Cloth Diapering- Oh My ( Guest Post)

Today I am guest posting over a Whistle and Ivy.  The topic is a little bit different than what I usually talk about.  If you have kids or know someone with kids it might be a good read.  I was totally against cloth diapers but once I decided to go for it, I LOVE IT!   I give my insights into cloth diapers and the system that we chose to use.

Lovely Color and Gold

I am totally swooning over Oh Joy's newest fall line for Target.  I think I might have to go get one of everything!!   My favorites are the cups, pitcher and lantern.  But what can I say I love gold, and I love bright colors.  I guess that means I love all of it:)   Her stuff usually sells out quick so you better hurry and get it while you can!! What is your favorite piece, that is if you can choose just one!!?

  • I am a girl who loves to craft and create. I enjoy paper crafts, wood projects, creating home decor, sewing, gardening, you name it, and if I haven't done it before I probably am interested in trying.When I get going on a project it takes up my whole life until it is finished. That can be a good thing and bad thing. I whip out my projects usually pretty quick but leave the disaster of a tornado behind me.
