Instead of shopping yesterday, I was creating! While preparing for Thanksgiving all week, I told myself that on Friday, no matter what, I was going to do nothing except play with paper...which I did!
I made one of these calendars for myself a few years ago to put on my fridge and have been wanting to make more since. Just listed a few in my Etsy shop.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!

Who doesn't love pink!!!??? Ever since I was room, pink carpet, pink clothes, pink bike...Everything had to be pink! I was never really a girly-girl but still had to have everything pink. I remember once for Halloween I didn't know what to be so I dressed in all pink, wore pink makeup and even sprayed my hair pink...I was the first "Pink". As an adult, while antiquing or at tag sales, if I found something pink, it was mine! Now being the only girl in a house of four men (3 little, 1 big), pink is the only feminine thing that I've known. But frankly, I am getting a little tired of all the pink and have decided to start parting with some of the pink stuff.

Some of these pink items can now be found in both of my Etsy shops and hopefully another pink lover can give them a good home!

Better late than never!

As you can see I am a little behind on my blogging! Never seems to be enough time in the day! *sigh*. As always, my boys are really into getting dressed up for Halloween and I love that they do. I thought this would be the year that my 10 year old was going to tell me he wasn't dressing up anymore but as long as he was in camouflage he was happy!!!!!!!!

My youngest, for the past three months, was insisting that he was going to be Chucky for Halloween. Yes, that mean little doll Chucky from that horrible movie! I couldn't give in...just didn't seem right. I didn't even think they made a Chucky costume but when we went to the costume store he found it within seconds. I some how coaxed him into believing it was only made to fit teenagers and it worked. Right after he found this mummy costume and was thrilled. But he still keeps drawing pictures of Chucky....what's up with that?

My 8 year old loves to be something that stands out a little more. When he was younger he used to be so shy and would never do anything that would make him stand out or be noticed. Now he's the complete opposite!

As far as decorating went this hardly went at all! I kept it very casual with a ot of white pumpkins, acorns, and some mice here and there.

Hope yours was a good one!
