goings on

4:28:00 PM

We've been busy around here. But really, who isn't busy? I'd like to know. In my way, I have many projects started and I'm finishing them little by little. I have tried to limit my projects and finish everything before I started something else. This does not work for me. I just sat around and didn't make anything because I didn't want to finish my projects, when I finally gave in and started something new, I was so refreshed, I finished some of the projects that had been waiting. Anyway... sorry for the ramble.

I've been researching autumn wreaths and found one that I liked here. I gathered around 100 acorns and pinecones (courtesy of unsuspecting neighbors and BYU). I had to start and stop a few times because I didn't realize how many of them I'd need. I sprayed some of the acorn nuts and pinecones and old (dated) berries with copper spray paint and love the effect it added!

Other goings on:

 I finally finished setting up my Halloween mantel.

 Abe clearing his tray of food in 5 seconds. Again.

I bought a half bushel of apples remembering Rob's apple pies and some how (I don't know how) forgetting that he is the busiest he's ever been in his life.

We're finishing up Jack's Halloween costume (a knight). I spray painted some $1 a yard kelly green vinyl metallic silver for his armor.

We're still getting raspberries! It's my daily treat (aside from dark chocolate chips).

I'm hoping to finish Halloween costumes soon. I'm also hoping to have enough energy/time to post them before or on Halloween. We'll see.

  1. i love it all! especially the wreath! how do you think spray painting nylon fabric would go over?

    1. Thanks Mandy! Um, depends on what you're using it for. I would think that if it rubs against itself too much, it would start to come off. You could try in on a scrap though just to see! What are you making?

    2. a friend is making fairy wings and asked what I thought

  2. That wreath is amazing! It would be big bucks at the store. I can't tell you how many times I have gone wreath searching just to come home empty handed.....$80, $120, $160....I don't think so! I can't wait to see the costumes, you always come up with the cutest outfits.

    Glad you all are doing well.
