As we get closer to The Day, I become like a kid who keeps asking “Are we there yet? Are we there yet?” – hahaha. 😀 Well, you all know me – I enjoy doing this and that, but there is one time of the year where I really have great fun working on my projects. You know what I am talking about, don’t you? Of course you do! Halloween! Yeessss!!!! Today is the day I start posting about Halloween. And oh boy – do I have some lovely Halloween props for you this year! But before jumping into anything else, I want to show you my potted Rosemary (aka potted hand Halloween prop), as it is related to last year’s beloved project: Halloween Apothecary Jars.Speaking of Apothecary Jars, did you see my Apothecary Jars project from last year? Oh you didn’t? I am sharing 80+ jar labels on our blog together with lots of jar filler ideas, so if you are into Halloween, you really don’t want to miss these free printable labels. Here is a pic from that post, so you can see the labels ;-) [It is one of most popular posts - hint hint!!]

Gardeners have a wide variety of "tastes" when it comes to landscape decorations. If you are looking for directions to make a garden buddy out of flower pots, here's a good link:
Since Spring is right around the corner, I decided to let my girls get creative and paint some flower pots. My oldest daughter wanted to get a little more creative than the others and make a Minion Flower Pot. She knew that since all of her little sisters loved the Minion Movies that this would be a perfect addition to our garden area.
We took our boring, builder-grade fireplace and gave it a total transformation to make it feel a little more special! Here are the details on how we got it done (if you're curious about the mantel, it's a DIY project! Click here to see the full tutorial).
As an artist, a musician, and a very busy housewife; I have to admit, I am sometimes not very organized. My desk had become a catch all - everything from bills to band and art supplies.

I nodded and agreed - it was time for a change.
Tis the season to start thinking about Christmas decor and my mind has been racing with ideas. On a trip to my Dollar Store I spotted three different size pails and I started to pile them on top of each other in the middle of the aisle. Yes I got a few funny glances, but I was too excited to care.I struggled for a brief moment with what I was going to use for the base then it hit me. A lamp base of course. I knew this was going to make a great tree!
I was recently challenged to clean with Alka-Seltzer.

Most kid crafts aren't exactly gorgeous, ya know.
