Wishing you and your loved ones a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite times of the year. We should be thankful everyday for all the blessings in our lives, but what makes Thanksgiving so special is it’s a day where we all stop to gather with the people that we are so blessed to have in our lives. It just makes the Thanksgiving meal the more special… fighting over the last of the stuffing that’s left [...]
I love pie. Especially homemade pie. Pumpkin pie being my fave. As a matter of fact, I only like pumpkin pie when it’s homemade. I don’t mind pumpkin pie from the can at all, but nothing comes close to a pumpkin pie that is made from a fresh pumpkin! Other than sharing this pie and my love for pumpkin pie, I also shared with you a recipe that I love to [...]
I hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween! We had a good time trick or treating… checking out the awesome decor, fun costumes… and just seeing everyone having a good ol’ time! Now on to Thanksgiving! I’m looking forward to that. How about you?
I received an unexpected order recently. It was for a wreath. I love wreaths. I do enjoy making them. However, it never crossed my mind to sell them. Nevertheless, I took the order. The order was from a friend who was getting it as a gift for her mother. Her mother wanted a wreath that could be used all year round but with fall colors. Well, this couldn’t have been [...]
Earlier this year (yup, the kid plans ahead!), Suraya decided she wanted to be something “scary” (as she puts it) for Halloween. That something scary is a zombie bride… and I liked that idea! As I was searching for ideas, I came across this Corpse Bride costume over at Family Ever After. I loved it, so decided to use it as the inspiration for Suraya’s costume. First thing on the [...]
A few months ago Suraya had asked me if there is anything she can make out of some newspaper comic pages and comic book that were given to her. I told her there are quite a few things she can do with them so she should save them for a day when an idea pops in her head. On our way home from our pumpkin picking adventure last week, a [...]
Pumpkins. I love pumpkins! As I declared in one of my previous posts, I have an obsession with pumpkins, so I sure was in pumpkin heaven when my family and I went on our pumpkin picking adventure! I picked out a pumpkin, and it’s been all doiled up for the season! Get it… doiled as in dolled..haha! Yeah, I am one to laugh at my own jokes. :P I love doilies… I love lace.. and [...]
Along with County Line Orchard, another fun fall tradition for my family is going to Bengtson’s Pumpkin Farm. We L-O-V-E love Bengtson’s! It’s not your ordinary pumpkin farm… it’s full of fun activities and adorable scenery along with sound effects that adults and kids alike can enjoy! Here a few of the things you will see at Bengtson’s… An old smoking pick up truck going clunkity clunk (well, that’s not [...]
A few months ago I had bought a frame for my mother but it didn’t work out. I didn’t need it so I had planned on returning it, but there was one problem… I lost the receipt. Arghs! It’s from Hobby Lobby, so I was fine with getting a store credit… it’s not like I won’t be using it. Off to Hobby Lobby I went to return it only to [...]
