A pumpkin craft tutorial

One of my favorite fall crafts that my daughter has ever made has gotta be this pumpkin from a brown lunch sack (bag.)

What you need:

Orange WASHABLE tempera paints

Brown lunch sack

Green pipe cleaners

Have your child paint the brown paper bag, let it dry.  Open the bag and puff it and shape it.  Twist the top and hold with the pipe cleaner.  Viola!  You have a pumpkin!

My daughter made her pumpkin when she was in VPK (5 years ago) and it is one of my favorite Halloween decorations that we put out every year.

My Fashionable Friday at the office, wearing floral leggings and the beautiful Anthro inspired Amelie blouse.  I absolutely love the lace back on this blouse!  The fishtail hem is great for flattering for the derrière, and looks great with jeans, leggings, or a skirt.

The Birthday Box and a great big RAWRRR!

Here is a really easy and fun birthday box that you can create for that special someone.  You can fill the balloon with just about anything that is small enough to fit in the hole.  You can include a message, candy, money, gift card, or confetti.  Make sure you put the hidden message or gift in the balloon before you blow it up.   You will also need a medium sized box.  You may want to decorate the box with balloons, confetti, or glitter.  Write Pop Me on the inner tab of the box with an arrow pointing down to the where the balloon will sit.  Seal up the box and send it via USPS.  This is a great way to share birthday greetings with that someone special that is miles away.

Just another day at the office…Today I woke up and my son said,  “Rawrrr!”  I asked him what that was for and he said, “because I love you mom!”  I decided to keep the walk on the wild side and I wore my new favorite skirt from Groopdealz  .  I love this skirt!  It is so easy to dress up or down.  The elastic waist offers a more comfort fit and the skirt has a slip liner.  Even the guys like the skirt!  That is right girls!  I got more compliments from the guys today at the office then ever!  Something about a pretty lady in animal print!
