Halloween on My Mind

Yes, we are still in the month of August and here in Texas it is triple digit heat every.single.day. yet I am already thinking about Halloween.  Actually, I have been thinking, planning, web searching, and pinning all things Halloween.  Folks, that is what happens when all the stores start displaying all of the Halloween and autumn décor before school even starts.  My kid started school last week and I found all his school supplies alongside the Halloween items.  Now that school  is in session the Halloween aisles have expanded even more so.  Oh and do not get me started on the Christmas décor.  Ay ya yay.  Well that marketing thing is working and I cannot wait to get started in my home.  Yep, I'm a sucker.

Check out some of the ideas I have come across while scrolling the web and are making my creative wheels spin:

Witches shoes decor from Better Homes & Gardens

Eyeball wreath also from Better Homes & Gardens.


Good Housekeeping shows a creative way to fill that fireplace.


From All You.
I think I'll incorporate this somewhere inside my house.


Last but not least a fun lantern project also from All You.
I know my kids are going to like making this one.

I have also seen lots of mummy inspired decorations and I thought of a cute craft I can make with my kids for their classroom Halloween parties.  I'm getting excited but first let's get rid of this heat!

Glass Vase Snowman Decor {Craft DIY}

Hello peeps!  Who is still stuffed from all of the Thanksgiving deliciousness?  Or broke from those fab after-Thanksgiving sales?  I don't do the whole crazy shopping thing but I am stuffed and happy.  I got to watch lots of t.v. and in my jammies.  Woot!  

On to my latest project, except I made this last year so I'm kinda lying.  I never got to share this with you guys because of lots of computer problems.  Anywho, I made a snowman using two floral vases.



I was inspired to make this snowman after I saw another blogger make with decor with round floral vases.  She used different glitter for each vase and then topped each one with a witch hat.  It was classy and cute.  And darn.  I wish I could remember that blogger and her site. 
Well here is how I got down to business when making this snowman.

Supplies:
2 - round floral vases 1 - sponge brush Mod Podge 1 - small jar of white glitter 2 - sheets black felt w/glitter scissors craft or felt glue 2 - lids from food canisters (like oatmeal) …

Easter Egg and Vase Decor {Craft DIY}

Happy Good Friday lovely people.  Easter is my favorite holiday and sadly I haven't decorated much for this Holy celebration.  I have been so busy (I'm always saying that!) and I won't dare go up in the attic to get my decorations.  The attic freaks me out so I always send the hubby to get my things; although he too is a very busy man this tax season.  Anywho, I started this craft project a few weeks ago and just finished it this morning.  Seriously.



Organizing da Hair Accessories

Before my daughter was born it was just the hubby, our boy and me.  I only had me to worry about when it came to all things hair.  Then baby girl came along and little by little the hair accessories, combs, brushes and everything else started to pile up and take over my middle bathroom drawer.  Up until a couple of weeks ago my hair accessory drawer looked like this:


It was so bad and I couldn't stand it any longer.  Actually it had been quite some time that I could not stand but I finally got around to organizing it.  While still on holiday vacation in early January, the kids and I took a field trip to The Container Store.  One of my new favorite stores.  Love!

After browsing, browsing, browsing and more browsing I finally got down to business.  Mainly because the kids were getting restless otherwise I could have spent the whole day there and compiled a huge wish list.  I came home with some Linus drawer organizers and after a major make-over our hair accessories bathroom drawer lo…
