I love decorations that can be used for more than one holiday. It was easy to make these blocks into fun pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns by putting vinyl faces on one side of the blocks and decorative scrapbook paper on the opposite side. These 4×4 2-Sided Pumpkins are fun decorations for both Halloween and Thanksgiving.

A lot of people do a big Spring Cleaning once a year but I prefer to do several specialized cleanings throughout the year. Once the kids have gone back to school and before the craziness of the holidays start I like to do a good Fall Cleaning and Maintenance of my home. I feel good knowing the house is clean and maintained before the weather turns cold and holiday guests start arriving. Plus I have more time to enjoy the season and spend time with my family once the house is in order.

You know how an event can create a snowball effect and before you know it you’re rearranging and changing 4 rooms in your house at the same time? I can’t be the only one. This Master Bedroom Office Space is one of those areas. I’ll share the whole story with you in another post but we’ll start with the little office space since it can be done quickly and on a small budget.

Since October is sneaking up on us I’ve gathered 13 of my favorite Halloween Kids Crafts. They’re for all different ages and abilities so pick the ones that will best fit your kids or grand kids interests. Confession time: I love Halloween crafts more than any other holiday, even Christmas. I think you’ll love these projects especially because most of them require very little supplies.

Hi Friends! Welcome to my Fall Home Tour 2016. I love Fall and decorating for Fall is an added bonus. My decorating style is much like my organizing style: simple, minimal, and use what I already have. I love the colors of Fall! Although I’m not a huge fan of orange I love adding splashes of it here and there, especially since it’s hubby’s favorite color.

Favorite Roasted Vegetables

in Recipes

If I had to pick only one food to eat for the rest of my life this would probably be it. My Favorite Roasted Vegetables are healthy and full of flavor. And it isn’t unusual for my family to eat the whole tray of veggies in one meal. Apparently they like them too. I always hope for leftovers but it only happens every once in a while.

I don’t usually have a problem keeping everyone’s schedule straight and as the kids living at home dwindles, it’s getting even easier. The problem is the kids and hubby sometimes have no idea what’s going on. I’ve tried other ways to help my family keep things organized but they were all too complicated so they would just ask me the schedule anyway. This Weekly Dry Erase Board is simple, to the point, and decorative. It hangs by the garage door (where we go in and out of the house) so it can’t be missed.

Halloween Sour Cream Containers

These Halloween Sour Cream Containers have been on my list to make for years. I can’t believe it took me this long to get around to making them. Since Halloween is the next big holiday I decided to go with a Halloween theme, but they would be easy to custom make for any holiday or celebration by simply changing the paper you use. You could also add tags or labels to them.

It’s technically not Fall but I couldn’t wait any longer to start creating and decorating with leaves, pumpkins, and cozy colors. I needed wanted a new wreath for the front door so I decided the monogram that’s been laying around since last Winter was finally going to be used. There’s just something refreshing and welcoming about crisp leaves and a pretty monogram on the door. I hope this Monogram Fall Wreath welcomes lots of visitors this Fall season.

Just something small to show you’re thinking of them can add more meaning to the holiday to make it special and memorable. These Pumpkin Candy Pouches are easy to make and fun to fill with favorite holiday candies or little toys. Kids will love them, maybe even the adults too.
