Fall / Thanksgiving / Baby Shower / Halloween

2 Comments

= busy! Another month over so soon!!! Seems like since I’ve been blogging the months are going even faster.

September was a busy month but not as busy as October is going to be with Thanksgiving next weekend and the baby shower the following weekend.  Needless to say I’ve been hanging out in my cave a wee bit.  Good thing it’s my favourite place to hang out :)

I made 60 of these shower favours.  I don’t think there’ll be that many people at the shower but I’d rather have more than not enough.  I was so happy to get them done.  I filled them with candy.  I couldn’t find a variety of candy in blue wrappers so I wrapped alot of them myself in silver paper, overtop of the original candy wrapper. Once I got the knack I was like a candy wrapping machine.  It was pretty monotonous but worth it I think. I’m looking forward to seeing them all on the table at the shower.

These were my Etsy orders.

My customer wanted quotes on one side of these bulbs and names on the other.  I wasn’t sure the quotes would fit but they did. It was hard to get a good picture but they turned out really cute.

The rainbow door knocker is something new I added to my shop.

This glass block night light was a gift for a sweet little girl on her 1st birthday. I etched the front of the block to give it a frosted look, drilled a hole in the back with my glass drill bit,  added 2 sets of battery operated christmas lights and some strips of tulle inside the block to help keep the lights separated. I added velcro to the back of the light and to the battery packs to hold them on.

This weekend I started to get ready for Thanksgiving, Fall and Halloween.

I added some berries to my glasses

and I got my Fall decorating done outside.

My wreath needed a little updating so I sprayed it with some gold glitter and added some varnish spray and then glued the scarecrow on that I took off an old decoration.   He’s cute just sittin’ there chillin’.

I varnished my pumpkins with gloss varnish so they’re nice and shiny and decorated them with some black vinyl words and dots.

I made this fall tree a few years ago.  It was a green tree but a lot of the branches had fallen off so I went to the dollar store and bought a bunch of fall leaf branches, plucked the old green ones off the tree and replaced them with the fall ones.  I picked up some orange lights from Party Packagers and there she is looking like she’s on fire ;) I love it! A beautiful fall tree that the leaves don’t fall off of :)

Anyway ;)
