Halloween Jewelry with Blue Moon Beads

Hello! It's almost October and I'm excited to be able to wear the Halloween jewelry I made with the Blue Moon Beads Holiday Frights line. 

The Spider hair pin is my favorite piece. I simply used wire to secure the spider to a hair clip. My daughter's Ariel doll is modeling it for us. 

This Candy Necklace can also be wrapped around as a charm bracelet. I love pieces that are versatile :) 

We're big Walking Dead fans at out house and this Zombie necklace and earring set was so easy to make. I just used a black ribbon for the necklace. 

Next time you're at Joann stores, check out the Holiday Frights line and get in the spirit!

September Stack-a-holicChallenge reminder

Hello! I have a layout all about being thankful. 
Who says you have to wait for november?! lol 

This is my take on the DCWV Stack-a-holic challenge this month. This was a fun sketch because the placement of the photos is very different than what I would choose on my own :)

Make sure to play along and you could win some new DCWV goodies. 
Just visit the DCWV Blog for details and more inspiration from the rest of the awesome design team.

Hello Fall!

Hey Everyone! Oh my! It's September...How did that happen so fast?!

I'm looking forward to comfy sweaters and warm drinks. What are you looking forward to this fall?

I thought I would make some acorn treat holders to hand out to a few friends as we welcome fall, later this month. I used the new DCWV & Lia Griffith Fall Acorns stack from Joann stores.

The patterns are already die cut, so all I had to do was pop them out of the stack and  assemble them.
I love to have something to do while I watch TV and these Acorns got assembled during a  Downton Abby marathon :) 

A couple tips:
1. Use a pencil to curl the ends of the acorn tops for a 'cuter' look.
2. I found hot glue to be the best adhesive option. Use tweezers while assembling to avoid burning fingers.

Embellishing the Acorn tops was SO much fun!
 Probably the best part of the whole process. 
I used beads, buttons, wood veneer and wire from my stash. 

Next, fill with your favorite treats. I opted for Brach's Autumn Mix and Mega M&Ms. 

Now, let's hope I can keep my hands off the treats :) 

What would you put in these?
