I sure hope not, because I FINALLY finished this little craft I started two weeks ago! Yep, it's a fact. And not because it's a really complicated one, because it isn't. It's mainly because I literally did a bit here, a little there, in the middle of all of our home improvements! :)
I had so much fun making this banner! After seeing other bloggers do them~ namely Kim from One Woman's Cottage Life, and Cherry from Cherry's Jubilee~ I just had to give it a try! Cherry made a couple of Halloween ones, so of course, I played copy cat! I decided to spell my currently favorite Halloween word!
The trick was finding letters large enough, but I finally found some at Michael's. (Cherry used similar ones in her last banner.) They have them in quite a few colors, which is good, because I am making one for Thanksgiving. I love how they sparkle! It was also fun to add the little adhesive gems to them!
And though it's true, you've seen these candle holders before, I moved them again! This was five minute decorating (meaning thrown together) but I thought I'd show you it anyway! :) It probably breaks every last rule of decorating, but what to do when five minutes is all you have? :)
Next year, every room of of our house will not be uh, "decorated" with cans of paint and containers of joint compound, screwdrivers, mesh tape and hammers!
(I hope!) Next year, I am looking forward to doing more decorating! Although I really should not complain, because I am so blessed we have this house! :)
Oh, I wanted to show you this picture of our Japanese Maple. I have never been a huge fan of this tree, but my husband loves it. Even I have to admit, the color is amazing in the fall, and this year, it's especially vibrant!
(Please ignore the sad state of my garden!) The fall colors have been so gorgeous this year! :)
Well, I hope you all had a marvelous weekend, the last one of October!
