1.The kids have their customs except “baby.” Pinterest is going to make me work a little harder than usual to create her custom, so I will need more time.
2.We have had a schedule full of Halloween activities, and more to come. This will definitely keep us busy for the rest of the off track season (whole month of October). Did I mention enough I don’t like year round school? And that my kids are on vacation? And that I’m going a little nuts with all the schedule changes that entails?
3. I already have all the materials I will use to make Halloween’s gifts. Tipically, it’s not until a couple of days before that I’m rushing to barely figure out what to make. See how a life can change with Pinterest?
It feels to me that we are almost ready for this Holiday because aside from the above, this is why:
The personalized Pumpkins, with every member of our family’s initials, that I made (which eventually, in spite of my dislike, will get carved the day before Halloween) by modpodging black buttons unto them. They seat happily on my porch.
And because the porch still felt a little empty, I had to make a very simple, easy, inexpensive (my kind of way) wreath.
I used materials I already had:
Yes, that is TULLE you are seeing. All you do is cut the tulle in small rectangular pieces and tie it around the circle (I payed .75 for it at the dollar store last year). At last, I added the orange satin ribbon. I’m sure if you have more time and patience (which at this point I lack) you can add flowers, etc. I’ve also seen this type of tulle wreaths with birds and feathers, etc.
Seriously, this was such an easy project. I’m glad!
Linking up here
A reminder that starting next Tuesday, (and every Tuesday) I will be hosting a link party. Remember this? Reflecting in the past is good, Living in the past- not so much. We will share our stories that made us WHO WE ARE!
In honor of my 1 year anniversary as a blogger, I am having another amazing giveaway. Stay tuned! Details that same week of Oct 18th!
