A brief post to share my Saturday night crafty activity… We had some friends up for the weekend, and i wanted to use up some glitter! I read a bunch of tutorials online, and in the end decided to just try a very easy technique of brushing some Mod Podge over the pumpkin, sprinkling it with a lot of glitter, letting it dry and coating it with a light layer of spray on glaze. I have more photos of all the weekend s activities, crafty and otherwise, but for now, am so proud of the sparkle on my front steps, I couldn’t wait to share!
My, how time flies! It feels like just yesterday we were carving pumpkins and my nieces were dressed up for Halloween like a couple of cuties from the ’50’s.
Now here I am worried about getting all my Christmas shopping done in time for the holidays. Where does the time go?
In between, of course, was Thanksgiving– our first in our house! With a little help from both sets of parents, our dear Cynthia and Giles and their cute pup Lola, we hosted a feast to remember. Good times!
Everyone wrote what they were thankful for in 2012 on my new chalkboard
making do with what we had, and with new plates from The Apples, a Thanksgivign table was set!
