I Got Crafty

Today was such a beautiful day.  The weather was just perfect and it started to remind me of fall weather in California.  It's interesting, as soon as Utah hit September the weather decided to get wonderful and more fallish.  I am loving it.

So with this nice weather we decided to head out to the local farmer's market and take a ride on the scooter.  It was a beautiful way to start our Saturday.  Being at the Farmer's Market made me get in the mood of fall, Halloween, and craftiness. This sudden mood brought on trips to Micheal's and Walmart to find some of the basic things I needed to get started.  I was determined to make all my decorations this year.  Pinterest has made me desire to be more crafty when I see all the amazing things other people can do. Now that I've done my first project I can't wait to do more.

So with this feeling I made some candle holders/decorations and an Autumn Wreath.  I think they turned out great.  Keep in mind this is my first time attempting to be crafty not on a computer.  It was great to let my creative energy be free...if that is even a real thing.  I think sometimes we all need to let our creative energy out.  At the end you feel so accomplished.  So check them out!  I can't wait to see pictures of how everyone else is decorating their home for the upcoming holiday season.

I thought my candy corn candle holder idea was genius!

I love the way this turned out. It was so much cheaper than buying a pre-made wreath.

  1. Laura I love them all! So creative. Lately I have been in the mood too but I am trying to contain my "creative energy" until I am no longer a student and settled. Then I plan to go on a creating-crafty-mania! :) Btw the candy corn candle holder....could that be any cuter?!! I think not :)
