Pumpkins and Falling Leaves

Tonight we took grandma to Lynx Lake and discovered that fall actually does come to a few of the trees in this corner of Arizona. After being in Phoenix last year, it was so nice to see some sort of seasons again!

Last night for FHE was pumpkin carving. Ben did a fun treasure hunt to the pumpkins that the kids were so excited about. They handled the guts pretty well.

Boutiques & Bows

So I'm officially crazy, but having so much fun :) Here's what I have for the boutique so far, not including the I Spy Bags. I still have flower clips and pillows to go.

This is my note to credit Andrea... thank you again... so much.... for showing me how to make bows. LOL, I was going through my ribbon box and found the bows I'd tried to make a year ago. Just so you can all enjoy my laugh, I've pictured them below :)

Ric Rac Bow Holder

Thank Jessica for totally encouraging me! I'm meeting with a boutique this week to show them a whole bunch of stuff and I'm so excited and nervous. I made up this bow holder to go with the bows I'm taking in and I'm hooked. It's only 8 x 10" but I'm loving the idea of making a collage of bow holder frames. I've got a purple check one under way already :)

Look closely, the ric rac is pink also, so it blends in, but it's there :)
