Putting It All Together.....Craft Style

Tonight we put our little pumpkin project together. Excessive with the flowers? Maybe, but after much deliberation, Jordan and Jackson decided that this was the best way to go.....ALL OUT....and that's how I tend to be anyway.

Michaels sells these kinds of arrangements for around $250-$300 full price and I've always been tempted to buy one. This one has WAY more on it so I don't know what it would sell for at the store. I know I spent so much less and it was fun to make it and make it the way I wanted.

How to store it??????? Better put that on my list.

Now if someone bought me the scroll saw on sale at Canadian Tire this week, I would make a little sign to put on the front. We shall see.

Goes by the front door in the morning.

There was a lady at the Farmers' Market in Duncan who sold fresh flowers in real pumpkins. I loved them. She used Gerbers and Sunflowers in bold fall colors.

That looks fantastic! Are you for hire? What a little creativity and store coupons can get you... Fall is inspiring, don't you think?

There is a saying that goes something like: if you want something done...ask a busy person. You, my friend, take the cake!!! You are CRAZY talented!
