Archives for September 2012
Every October for the past few years I have been following some amazing bloggers through a 31 day series about all kinds of awesome topics. The Nester hosts it and I am so excited to be joining in this year.
I have finally come up with a name for my series!
If you want to be encouraged to step out of your comfort zone, start making time for creativity, or even just to realize your creative potential please join me every day in October for tips and inspiration to unleash your creativity!
As homeschoolers it is a fantastic resource, as a mom it is becoming the bane of my existence.
All because of late fees.
The kids so easily lose books, but that is not the only problem. Why is it so hard for me to return the books on time?
This looks like a fun solution.
We already have a library book basket, the problem is that the kids take one out to read and don’t return it to the spot.
Maybe this would work?
There are so many cute printables around this year. I love using them for small gifts or just to send a greeting!
Here are two printable Halloween cards to send a spooky greeting to your friends and family. Not too many people expect Halloween mail so surprise someone special with some fun mail this year.

Pumpkins are the perfect sign of fall aren’t they? I love how there are so many different ways to make pumpkins. I’m amazed at the creativity I’ve seen this year around the blog world! And the pumpkin recipes all sound so delicious. I’ve already made a pumpkin pie and had pumpkin cream cheese bars at a friends house, both fantastic!
Today I’m going to show you how to make a yarn wrapped pumpkin.
- orange yarn
- green and brown felt
- sturdy fabric or batting
- polyfil stuffing
- hot glue
Let’s get started shall we?
For my pumpkin I used an extra piece of batting I had lying around, but you can use any sturdy fabric you may have. Cut your fabric into a square, size is up to you. The larger the square the larger the pumpkin. Mine was about 12×12.
