wreath and truck

I got my Thanksgiving/fall wreath made and up this week :)
I like it even better than the Christmas one that i did last year. Speaking of Christmas wreaths i am super excited about this years. I am planning to go crazy with sparkles and these swirly curly things i found at Hobby Lobby!

The boys are trying to get the truck working! At least to get it to start so we can take it to the mechanics! So far not so good, we may just have to find someone that can help us tow it down the mountain....errggg...

So here are the Before and After shots of the kitchen. I forgot (as usual) to take before pictures so I had to dig up some other pictures that show the kitchen. So pardon the mess!!! and let me know what you think. It still needs either a 4th coat (evil red!!!) or I am also thinking of doing a faux finish to antique it a little. The back splash that I am planning to do will have more of an antique look, so i will probably just do some sort of antiquing instead of another coat. :) Also I am putting up some paintable wallpaper that will look like bead board below the chair rail and will be painting that an off really these are the before and middle pictures not before and after! haha

The base coat and you can also see the mint blue/green ceiling. I am so happy that is gone!;)

I really think the red looks good and cuts down on the orange look of the cabinets. It is going to look even better with the finish on it and the backsplash. It will be the tin ceiling tile look, white with silver coming through! So excited!

silver spray paint

So spray paint is fun ;)
This is one of the centerpieces for the party. I added some little painted pumpkins and pine cones. I think it is cute and shiny.

So! It is a lot harder than i thought it would be to get a craft done everyday! ahh! especially when all the craft store are 30 mins away and naptime seems to always make me leave the store before i am done shopping. humph! Well maybe I just need to learn to shop faster...hehe
But I have to get several more things done before the Halloween party (must buy pumpkins!) and Lillian's due date is looking closer and closer and her room is FAR from done!
Here are some more pages of her Scrapbook!

Tombstones for my halloween graveyard decorations. I did it a few years ago and it turned out really great. This year i am doing more and bigger ones.

I cut out the shape and then run a black marker along the outside. Then I make crack lines and add the RIP and humorous epitaph. For the party i will be make a black picket fence on a black wall with streamers and arrange the headstones in the background.

Made a cute little tutu for Lillian. I made it larger than newborn so I could fit it to her when she gets here, even still I don't think she will be able to wear it out for a good while. I am planning to take some of her newborn pictures in it. Hopefully it will be all fluffy and cute in the pictures!

October craft-a-thon

October is almost upon us! Hooray to the start to the holiday season!
I think that there are so many holidays in the winter month to stave off the depression of winter that would surely fall on us if we didn't have costumes, turkey, holly and kisses at midnight to cheer us up!
We are planning to have our annual Halloween party again this year and I am open to any fun party or crafting ideas you have and plan to return the favor with (hopefully) a craft-a-day on the blog this October! I figure that between all the project I have planned in the kiddos rooms and a Halloween party to prepare for I should do okay. Plus it will be a great motivator to get all the crafty thing done that I need to do anyway!

Birmingham Zoo

We went with some of our church friends to the Birmingham Zoo. James really enjoyed it and love getting to hang out with his best little friend Raney. The First picture is my favorite! James just loves the monkeys and got to see 6 different kinds. Some where very active and this one in the picture startled him a few times but running quickly down a branch that intersected the glass, it was super funny!

James is acting out the tiger's food being thrown into his cage and splashing in the water. If you look closely you can see the tiger low in the grass eating.

Crafting for Lillian

I am working on several project for Lillian's room...well actually I have 3 rooms going at the same time! I am working on the kitchen nook, finishing James new room and Lillian's. So busy busy!

But back to Lillian's projects! I saw the cutest letters in a magazine (for much more than I was going to pay) and wanted something similar if not better. So I broke out the glue gun and decoupage and set to work at my handy-dandy crafting table.
Here is the end result and if I do say myself they are super cute and so much better than the ones I saw in the mag. ;)

First little Outfit

Even though Mom,Lisa and Gigi have bought several outfit for Lillian already, I can resist picking up some things of my own. This is the first little item to grace Lillian's closet! A little lamb sleeper.
I also picked up so super cute stuff at Dittos for Kiddos and made her a little tutu skirt for the newborn pictures that I am planning to take. She is going to be a well outfitted baby! Though I don't think anyone was worried about that!
