~MAKE IT!...FALL PUNKIN' CRAFTINESS





After spotting some small, tiger stripe pumpkins at the grocery store that were a lovely shade of pale yellow, the idea popped into my head to sassy one up for my sister's two-month-old.

These sunshine-yellow punkins reminded me of Sunday Magnolia (aka, "Sunnie"), so I set to work.






I tied a pretty ribbon around the stem; stamped her name (using a permanent, not a water-based, ink pad); and finished by gluing on a petite decorative flower (which I bought many years ago).

And voila!  Something sweet for Sunnie's first fall!

~ALL IN GOOD FUN...HALLOWEEN HUMOR





It's the day after Halloween, and the candy has been collected and is now waiting to be completely consumed by...

Kids?  Yes, of course, by *children*, people.

Well, maybe not.

I sent a picture of this shirt to my sisters (who are both moms) because we all know that, well, Halloween isn't just for kiddos (wink-wink).

Parents, make sure to share with your littles--BE NICE!

~PUMPKINS + SUCCULENTS = PANACHE!

I think succulent pumpkins are soooo fun.  

While looking over DIY's of them, I discovered that some are created by gluing elements onto the top of a pumpkin (with tacky spray, tacky glue, and/or hot glue), while others involve cutting the top off a pumpkin and putting the ingredients inside. 

You'll find instructable videos of the former method here and here, and videos of the latter one here and here.  In the first video I linked to, you'll also find out how to care for succulent pumpkins.

To make matters even more fantastic, faux pumpkins can be used instead of real ones; the glue method can be used, or the top of the pumpkin can be cut off.

*For the extra-adventurous, a squash can be used instead of a pumpkin.☺

Below are oodles of photos of these fall-festive things...
