For Baby Bunge

One of my old co-workers is having a baby in a few weeks, or days really, and I went to her shower yesterday! Here's what I made for the baby!Paci clips, burp cloths, a bib, shoes, a taggie blanket and some pee pee tee pees. I loved being able to make them for her. And it's the first time I've gotten the sewing machine out since moving, and for that, I'm grateful for!

Here's a plaque I made for fall. Guess what it is? It's all foam board. Well, and scrapbook paper. I cut out the letters with a sharp exacto knife as well as the backing. I painted it all brown mostly so the sides wouldn't be brown. I Mod Podged the scrapbook paper and finished it with more Mod Podge. Total cost....$2. Can't beat that. The only thing is, I can't find a way to hang it outside. The first floor outside is brick and I don't know how to anchor it out there. Any ideas?

More Fall Decorations

I'm so excited to find new ways to decorate in my house! We really loved our apartment but there was just a lot that couldn't be done there. Here are more of my decorations for the fall. I know that I should be doing more unpacking but frankly, I needed a crafting break. And, having a pretty house is motivating me to do more and more unpacking.
The flower balls I made from some flowers my mom mailed me from Arizona. Funny because they don't get pretty fall foliage over there. I wrapped the ribbon under the ball to make sure it would hang securely. (The first one I made, I just pinned a bow on top which easily came off once I hung it.) The leaves I got at the dollar tree and just hung them with some thin brown ribbon. The biggest leaf I made hang the lowest and the smallest the highest. I really like them. They add a valance feel to the curtain rods. (Which I don't love but they were here when we moved in) Happy Fall!!!
P.S. I'm so sorry for the blurry pics. As soon as I load them on the blog, they get blurry and I don't know why. I promise they are not that blurry on my computer or when I take them. I've been noticing it on the last few posts. If anyone has any ideas, let me know!
