It was my moms birthday last week.

To honor her I made her a pillow.

Chantelle over at Mommyx3=insanity had an awesome idea!

Which she was inspired from on pinterest.

And then I was thus inspired as well.

Mason Jar Soap Dispenser

It's getting to be that time of the year where we start thinking about fun, inexpensive,
original gifts to give for the holidays.

This is what I have made first.

This is my Life: Pumpkin time

Funny conversation I just listened in on:

T examining his new toy spider - "Why is dis filled wif little balls?"
CM - "Maybe it's a boy spider."
T - "Daaaaad, all spiders are boy spiders."

Silly boys.

Back to my post.

We took the kiddo's to get pumpkins the other night... and I forgot my camera.

Sorry for the crappy ipod pics. 

And the bad exposure. But we got our pumpkins and everyone had fun.

Autumn Pillow

Writing this blog has been great for getting unfinished projects done.

I started this project a few years ago.

Best Cookie from 1915

I love this cookie recipe, not only are they soft and yummy but they don't
contain a whole lot of fat and sugar.

Gone Batty... Seriously

I am already amending my recently written "Blog Schedule."
I had Thursdays down as "Quote of the Week," but I have decided that since this is primarily
a crafty blog I should have 3 days of crafts and projects.

So Thursday will be "Easy Crafts" which I'm really excited about.

I love an excuse to crank out a 15 minute craft.

Try a Tray... or Three

I went shopping with my neighbor Jami one fine morning. 

She likes the same things I do so we hit a few thrift shops and found some awesome things.

We found some baskets, some picture frames, some vintage pyrex, a cool table cloth
and some other fun things.

She convinced me to buy this vintage cooky book and it it so much fun. 
Can I tell you how my kids eyes lit up when they saw a whole book of cookies.
And the recipes are great. I'll have to post my favorite sometime.
It was voted the best cookie of 1915 or something like that.

I also bought some greenish/blueish candle stick holders that I had no idea what to do with.

But then I had an idea. Sort of... This is not an original idea, I have seen these all over pinterest.

But here is my take on it.

Pumpkins and Creepy Mice

I saw these "fabulous" creepy mice on Martha Stewarts website.

Actually I saw them at my neighbor Jami's house as I popped in one day while she was hanging them on her walls and she showed me the website. Jami is awesome.

And from that moment on I had to have creepy mice scampering all over my house too!

A Walk in the Woods

One evening earlier this week we decided to skip homework and go for a little hike in the mountains.

CM was at work so it was just me and the boys.
Which was nice because usually he takes the kids on hikes when I can't come.

Salsa, Ole!

Last week CM and I canned some salsa.

I grew plants in our garden especially for this purpose.

This is good salsa. One recipe makes about 24 - 26 jars. That should last a few months... I hope.

We eat it like it's candy here at our house.
