Wicked Wisteria Halloween Wreath

affiliate

I’m fighting another allergy/head cold attack and I found day-time cold medicine to be oddly motivational. I didn’t have the wherewithal to make step by step tutorial for this one but I’ll walk you through it. Someday I might even figure out how to make a video and put together a start-to-finish of my creative fiddling. I think the drooping flowers and cheeky crows are perfect for Halloween but the muted purple and cream flowers would be a perfect for the rest of fall as well.

Sweet Cream Pumpkin Parfait

Back in July I shared a recipe for a Black Raspberry Fool made with sweet berries and cream, at the time I though “I should make this with pumpkin”. Which is actually a pretty common theme in my head. This is a spin-off of that recipe. It replaces yogurt with cream cheese and raspberry with pumpkin for a slightly heavier creamy dessert.

Paper Pumpkin Banner – Separate & Duplicate Tips for Silhouette

affiliate

I recently joined a Silhouette Group on Facebook. I’ve had mine for over a year and I’ve only used it a few dozen times, that’s pretty awful for such a versatile (and expensive!) machine. For my first project I wanted to do something I’ve never done before. I love all the designs with stacked paper, different pieces cut and glued/taped etc together but I’e avoided them in favor of things I can cut in one piece and use.

Burlap Stamp – Crafty Cornucopia

This event features bunch of my fellow bloggers, and I’m really excited to be kicking off burlap week. If you missed last week the theme was Buttons and you can check out the tutorials over at The CSI Project and My Favorite Finds.

When I picked burlap I knew I wanted to do something a little different. I’ve already covered half my house (and roughly 3/4  of my wedding) with the stuff and I wanted to step out of usual box. I have a 45 minute drive home everyday and this little gem popped into my head on the way home one day.
