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!
