Decorative Pumpkins.....

With Halloween just a few weeks away I am not looking forward to carving pumpkins after last years fiasco. I will be the first to say that I am not a pumpkin carver by far. I ran across these cool pumpkin crafts while waiting in line at the grocery store. I could not wait to get home to get the how-to's from These fun filled crafts require little to no carving and are full of creativity. My favorites just happen to be the one's that require NO carving at all. I can't wait to get my hands on some  cool prints to wrap my pumpkins in this year. Happy Crafting everybody.

Thrift Store Finds.....

I've been on the hunt for a new headboard for months now. When I finally decided to make my own I ran across this gem. I stopped over at Habitat for Humanity looking for some side table that would work with my design scheme on another project, and low and behold the design Gods we shinning down on me. This queen size headboard was priced at $25.00 and I was not about to let it pass me bye. I'm so excited to get started working on it. A little TLC is all this headboard needs and I'm ready to nurture it. Headboard make over take one.  There are plenty of unseen treasures at your local thrift store. If you are a DIYer like myself take some time to shop your local stores before diving into your next project. You might find it a little more satisfying doing the work yourself and a bit more budget friendly by going the thrift store route.
