It's a..........

We are so excited to finally know that we will be having a girl! This little one was very difficult at the ultrasounds so we had to wait an especially long time to find out! With Braxton we found out at 22 weeks, and that was with a two week wait for the party. This time around it was at 25 weeks. I know it's only three weeks but it was killing me!!

We did very quiet reveals with our parents this time around, versus the huge party we had when we were expecting Braxton. I just did not have it in me to do another huge party this year, especially trying to get things done around the most "helpful" toddler ever. But everything was perfect.

I cannot wait until our little one gets here, only 14 more weeks to go. And I just scared the crap out of myself thinking about how much there is to do and how fast this time is going to fly by. Better get my butt of the couch and get some work done.

Boo Sign

Welcome back and happy Monday again. Hopefully everyone had a nice and relaxing weekend. If not, hopefully you got a ton of things accomplished. It seems to always be busy here, even if we have nothing going on.

I wanted to share a craft I did a few days ago on a whim that I am actually quite smitten with. I had a small scrap piece of wood sitting around that I thought could be used somewhere, so I sanded it down weeks ago. It has been sitting around waiting for a new purpose. While finishing my scrap wood ghosts inspiration hit and now I have this cute little sign ready and waiting for Halloween.

Scrap Wood Ghosts

Hi everyone, I have finally gotten back to some crafting, which I am loving! Sometimes you can get so sidetracked with life and other things that you forget when you enjoy something so simple. I am excited to get back to doing something that I love so much.

Now as much as everyone hates to admit it, the weather is a changing and certain colder weather holidays are coming up. I skipped ahead a bit and made a fun and easy Halloween craft that will add a fun and spooky element to your house this year. All you need is some scrap wood, sandpaper, white paint and black paint. That's it.

Velvet Pumpkin Tutorial

Hello everyone and happy Monday. I know, not the best day to say that but I always like to wish you guys a happy day. Maybe it makes a difference, who knows.

Back when this blog was even smaller than it is now (and it's still pretty small!) I shared these velvet pumpkins, but never did a tutorial. I am making more and decided that I should show you guys how to make these on your own.
