Halloween procrastination.

So, what happens when you start a Halloween card in September and don't know how to finish it until the week of Halloween? Your heat gun breaks and you don't have a coupon to buy a new one and you're too cheap to pay full price and you're stuck with an unfinished card ;)

We've been pretty busy around here. Mike and I were able to go to San Francisco last weekend and see the Royals play in game four of the World Series. It was pretty awesome!!  Things have hectic since we got back, as it usually is the week of Halloween :)

I did pick up a couple of fun pages of stickers for my planner and a small punch, I think Tracy has this one :)

Anyway, I have a ton of things on my crafty to do list, but I'm still struggling with my new work schedule, and the job in general, so here's to hoping I have a productive crafty weekend!!

Thanks for popping in!!

Notebook for a friend.

So Landry head had some friends giving her gifts at school lately, and she wanted to give them something back. We made a few notebooks one morning before school, but I only snapped a picture of one :)

Hope you're having a good week!!

Project Life. Week #41 and #42

Hey all. Happy, happy Tuesday!! I'm sharing week #41 and #42 of Project Life today. Mostly marathon pictures. After I finished I realized Mike had gone to the Royals game on that Wednesday and I forgot to add pics in, so I'll be going back and doing a separate layout!!  So excited they are going to the World Series!!

Hope you have an awesome day!!

Chicago

Good morning! I hope you had a great weekend :) we were in Chicago for Mike to run the marathon for the second year in a row. We took the girls with us this year and had an awesome time!!

Mike set a personal record and finished in 3 hours and 12 minutes! So proud of him!!

Here are a few pictures of our weekend. I probably won't have a crafty post this...  Hope you have an awesome week!!

Craft room.

Good morning!! In an attempt to get my desk looking a little more clean-ish, I moved my caddy off and tried to streamline things.  My caddy is now right behind me on another desk and that's working out great so far!!

I also took a look at my room and decided to add some fabric around the bottom of a table I have and I LOVE it!! I just used tension rods and simple premade cafe curtains that I found on clearance!! I only have my rolling tote stored under that table, but the curtains help hide all the cords from my electronics :)

Have you made any changes to your craft room lately?

Witches hats.

The girls and I made some witches hearts over the weekend with foam cones card stock bases and feather boas.

I love the way they turned out, except one seems slightly off in proportion :(

I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet. I may just leave it ;)

I have put the other Halloween decorations out yet, so these are on my craft table for now.

Have you made any new Halloween decorations this year?

Votives

Happy Tuesday! Good morning!! I made these easy votive holders over the weekend, with some fun burlap ribbon. I just got glued it in place.

I'm not sure yet where I'm going to use them, but I love the way they turned out! They have this burlap ribbon all over and in tons of different widths and patterns! Perfect for just about any project!!

Have you used burlap on a project yet!

Dollar notebook.

Morning!! Now you guys know I love a good notebook, right? I'm a total sucker for anything that's $1 too. So when I find a notebook that's $1 AND it's made out of Kraft, I'm just beside myself!

I picked up this notebook at the Dollar Tree Saturday and quickly decorated it that afternoon with some fun items I found in the dollar spot at Target. Like I said, sucker :)

Hope you have an awesome day!!

Fall banner.

Happy Monday friends!! I hope you had a great weekend!! We sure did :)

Today I wanted to share with you a banner I made. A few years ago I made something similar to this, but sadly, my dog ate it last year :( literally.  This one is exactly the same size and shape, different materials.

Hope you have a wonderful week!

The girls'fall door decorations.

Last weekend the girls put the fall decorations up in the house and asked if they could decorate their bedroom doors.  I showed them how to work the Cricut and off they went.  They did a great job!!

Landry's is the first picture. She made extra flowers and hung them on her walls.

Abie's is the second picture.

Hope you guys had a great weekend. We had beautiful weather here and the girls each had a friend over for a sleepover and smores in the fire pit :)

Hope you have a great start to your week!!

Fall lantern redo.

Last year I picked up a couple of lanterns at Michaels for $2 apiece, in white. My plan was to paint one, but I didn't get around to it until this past weekend.

Let me tell you, painting it made ALL the difference!! I'm keeping one white, for spring/summer decorating, but I sure do love the darker, oil rubbed bronze "new" lantern.

Below is the before and after picture :)

Adventures in laminating!

I've been wanting a laminator for quite some time now. I started researching and found the Purple Cows Hot/Cold laminator 9" for $28 at Walmart.com asks I think Amazon had it for the same price. They also have a 13" size, and I debated on that or the smaller and ended up with the smaller size. The machine came with 50 sheets and was super easy to set up and use, right out of the box!

The girls made book marks, I laminated a to do list (which I had seen someone on Instagram do) I also made new dividers for my Filofax (not pictured)

For the price and ease, I don't know why I didn't pick one of these up earlier!

I also have to say, I found these Ultra Fine Tip dry erase markers and they ate pretty awesome!

Do you have a laminator? What do you laminate around your house?

Thanks for dropping by today. I'll be back later in the week with a post about a redo of a fall decoration. Have a great Monday!

Week 33 of Project Life

Morning!! Today I wanted to share week #33 of Project Life. I meant to do this last week and didn't get around to it :).

I loved the pictures from this week, because we had gone over to my sister's house and the girls talked her into making pillows. It was so cute :)

We have a busy night tonight, but an easy weekend!! Hope you have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by today!
