What a Weekend!

With vacation, the kiddos football and soccer practice/games and school starting back I have been MIA, but this weekend I really did "Labor" and finally got some projects done around here!

Some with a little Cricut magic:

Wedding gift for a co-worker

Baby Gift for a friend at church

A little Halloween fun

and some with a little paint!

Hall table and electronic station (loving that green!)

Side table

and more Halloween fun!

I bought these little fellas at the Dollar Tree and painted them white and then used a little water downed brown paint to glaze them. I "borrowed" this little idea from someone in blogland but cannot for the life of me remember who! I browse a lot of sites and if I see something I like I file it away in the mental file cabinet and save it for later but that file cabinet usually does not remember where it came from!

**UPDATE** Thanks to the JohnsonFamily23 for reminding me where I found this cute idea!

These are a PB knock off as well as borrowed from the same site as above! They also came from the DT and were glazed as well because they were a little too white for me..

I still have a few more that are In Progress but whew I'm tired so hopefully I will get them completed for a post next weekend! They are more DT finds with a little cricut magic entwined!


  1. I'm loving your Halloween creations! On the pumpkins and the gift for your co-worker, is it vinyl you used? I'm doing the Stashbusting September challenge so no trips to the $1 store this month and I want, want, want those figurines!

  2. These are great! I LOVE my cricut!!!! I will have to borrow some of your ideas too. Hey, where'd you get your white hall table? it is gorgeous and I've been looking for a nice "half" table for my house...

  3. Wow, your decor looks great. Love the PB knockoffs.

  4. I really hope you got the idea for the Halloween figurines from me :) It was one of my favorite projects! They were so ugly to start with but turned out great. Love what you did with yours.
