This year I got to be part of an awesome homemade gift tag exchange, there were over 30 participants and I received a giant envelope of loveliness. My tag was inspired by a file I found in the Silhouette Store for Garden Topiaries.
When you walk into my home the first thing you see is a red bookshelf with a giant frame on it. During the fall I had the fingerprint tree from our wedding on display but I wanted to change it up. The frame is filled with a piece of foam core board covered in burlap so I knew what ever I added had to be light weight.
I have a pile of stained wooden blocks sitting just inside the craft room door. Aka, I’ve been tripping over them for about a year. So when my sketch pen holder (finally) came in I decided to use it for the November Silhouette Challenge. The links to all the other posts are at the bottom so don’t forget to check those out too! I believe there were 31 people this time around.
I’m slightly obsessed with Christmas, and especially Christmas Carols. Probably not a shocker if you’re already familiar with my Winter Wonderland Mirror or Jingle Bell Rock Wreath. We’re currently in the process of adding lots of shelves and a full wall of bookcases to the living room so I’m just going to need a lot more Christmas decorations.
And that means I get to start referencing posts from last year (and yes, I’m posting Halloween projects in August)!If you were with me way back in the beginning you might remember I’ve got a thing for spider webs. My first tutorial ever was for embroidery hoop spider webs. If you weren’t one of the 50 people that saw that post check ‘er our!

Ok enough about that!
I decided to spice up my lawn spiders this year:
