I love to decorate for fall! Especially when I don’t have to spend a lot of time or money on new accessories for the house! With just a few inexpensive items from the craft store, you can make your own beautiful fall leaf pillows!
If you want to learn how to make these easy and creative pillows, go and visit Amy over at Positively Splendid for the full tutorial! Just click here!
I know it is only the 4th, but that means that we only have 20 more days to prep for Thanksgiving! I’ve said it before this year and I’m going to say it again – time is flying!! If your family is anything like mine, everyone shows up to Thanksgiving in their sweats and comfy clothes because we all just hang out and lounge around eating all day. Its glorious!!
I have been to a few “formal” thanksgivings and those are really fun too! I love seeing all the beautiful table-scapes, decorations and place settings. If this sounds more like your family, I have a really cool idea to share with you!
I love that these are just printable place cards and if you have a Silhouette or Cricut machine, they are extra easy to make! Just print them out, cut them out and decorate them however you want! I really like how Julie from EAB Designs made the edges of the leaves look a little burned and aged. There are so many options with these cute place holders. Click here for the full tutorial!
Here in Seattle, it is that perfect time of year. Let me paint the scene for you. People out on walks with their dogs, bundled up with scarves and jackets but still enjoying the blue skies and sunshine. Walking through their neighborhoods enjoying the beautiful weather and the changing of the leaves. Perfection! Am I right?
The only problem with this time of year is that its so short! I feel like one week the leaves will be bright and green and within a week or two they are all gone. I wish there was some way I could preserve the beauty of this season….oh wait! There is!!
Becky from The Mama’s Girls shows us her way of preserving the season in this great tutorial! Its super easy and it just requires two ingredients – one of which is water so does that really count as an ingredient? 🙂 This tutorial also helps to bring out the color in the leaves!
In her post, she also brings up a great point that these leaves would be perfect to use in a center piece or other decorating for fall/Thanksgiving! Head on over to The Mama’s Girls to check out the full tutorial!

With the baby only a few short months away from making his or her debut, I have been (and will probably continue) keeping my eye out for awesome baby related crafts. One that I found this week was this tutorial from Sara at House Bella on how to make your own super cute burp cloths! I know its not the most glamorous thing in the world but that’s OK because the cute patterns make it a lot more fun!
Not only am I going to be making some of these for myself but I will also be making them for gifts for Christmas and Baby Showers! If you want some cute fabric for this project,
check your local craft store or you can get your fabric where I’m going to get mine – Click Here!
