Live Laugh Love

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about dancing in the rain.

I'm not crafty. Unless you count pinning cute things on pinterest. But, I'm trying. I'm trying to be crafty so I can explore new hobbies that I may actually like. I'm also more proud of things when I can say I did them myself.  I found the easiest fall craft to do.

it was a messy craft

Glitter fall pumpkins! You can always buy really cute fall decor, but I like to find bargains and those usually mean diy. Joanne's is having a 50% off Halloween sale so I bought the pumpkins for $3(6 in a bag), glitter for $4 a bottle(I had a 20% off entire purchase coupon too), and Whitney brought the modge podge. We had a lot of fun doing the craft together and adding some sparkle to our fall decor.
I bought Halloween decals to keep the boys distracted

I mentioned Whitney above. Now, she is crafty and often talks me into doing them with her. A couple of weeks ago she asked if I wanted to make a skirt with her. We got the tutorial from Leanne and spent all day entertaining our boys and sewing these cute maxi skirts. Oh, did I mention she had to teach me how to use my sewing machine? I was taught but hadn't used it in, ever, so she had to re-teach me. She's the best. I love my skirt. The end.


  1. Shar! That centerpiece is adorable and the skirt looks fabulous!! Where'd you get your fabric? SO CUTE!!!

  2. Ok, I love your skirt!! Can you send me the link and maybe I'll try out my skills? .....OR better yet, I'll send you twenty bucks and you can just make me one because you love me! :)

  3. LOVE your skirt. haha you are my inspiration!

  4. Love the stripes! Were you with Whitney Asay? We were also in the same ward back in our old place (the same one that I was in with Lia Barlow). What a small world! Great job on the skirt!
