Carving pumpkins is an idea that I always love at first – and then before I’m done scraping the insides totally want to be done. So when I saw this post from Living with Lindsay it just spoke to me. I didn’t get the sticky-backed felt that Lindsay recommends, but hot glue worked just fine.
Also, a little note for the fantastic people who follow this little old blog (i.e., mom)…. I love doing this. I love finding little projects to help make my home more comfortable, plus having a hobby of my own is sanity saving! I have to say I would love to have the time and energy to post something creative every day like some of my favorite bloggers.
That being said, when it comes to a home, even if it is a home in progress, the most important thing about a home is the people in it. My kids don’t care if that shutter will tie in the hutch color from the front room – they want to finish that puzzle, go the library, play hide-and-go-seek (a new favorite). So in order to be here more for them, and less for my furnishings, instead of feeling guilty that I don’t post daily – I’m just going to try to have a weekly post. (Until I get better at this time management thing seriously how do some of my favorite favorites get everything done?) So check back on Wednesdays – that’s a good blog post day, yeah?
Thanks for sticking with me – and send me your projects!
