Got some Halloween running around done today. While we were at Michael’s this morning we found a cute little Halloween themed Mat Pad (see right) for $1.99. Been seeing a lot of craft paper chains in Pinterest lately and decided it would be a super fun project for Will Haven. Worked out pretty well I think, he sure loves playing with glue sticks!
Here is our finished product which now resides over our front door. (sticky fingers not shown.)
So, I got lazy with Helo’s costume, but only because WH decided that he wanted his baby brother to be a pumpkin and he saw a Pumpkin costume on an outing to Costco last week, so it was decided and we bought it. The end.
On the bright side, one down, only one to go. While I absolutely LOVE making these guys costumes, I’ll admit that I tend to get overwhelmed with all the things I have to do and how little time I have in which to do it!
So, that brings us to WH’s costume… Can you guess what it’s going to be?? Hint: It’s not a cow.
For me, we’ll see what I can scrape together at the last minute, as usual. I bought some face paint on my lunch break today. I’m think a mime…..or maybe I’ll just do sugar skull makeup. Speaking of which….I wonder who all is going to the Petaluma Dia de los Muertos event this weekend. Lots of fun is sure to be had!
First Off, We are renting our house, so there are soooo few things that I can do as far as decorating goes. I’ve taken a few liberties that perhaps I shouldn’t have, such as putting up a few curtain rods and an Ikea rod organization system in the kitchen. Nothing a little putty can’t fix when we decide to move!
Anyhow, I’ve been brewing up some ideas for the kitchen mostly, with a few more for the rest of the house. Here find my inspiration!
Blue Kitchen Ideas
I’m currently in the market for some lovely new knobs for my kitchen cabinets. I’ll share my finds as they present themselves!
I have a new love: PINTEREST!!!! It’s an incredible place where I can collect all the random bits and pieces of the interwebs that call my name. I’m finding so many beautiful and inspirational blogs and websites, I only wish I had more time (and money!) to delve more deeply into this world.
I have so many things I want to do: Decorate my house, landscape the front lawn, finish Helo’s sweater and blanket, finish reading The Count of Monte Cristo, clean the carpets, and countless other projects already started and not. Alas, with 2 small children it may be some time before any of this comes to fruition, but here I am, in my bit of free time to share with you PINTEREST!!!
