Hello all,

It is that time of year where the sound of crunchy leaves blowing on the pavement is music to my ears. In celebration of this wonderful season, I thought I would post an outfit of the day:

This outift is one that you will typically see me wearing in the Fall season. It is super comfortable, and the colors make me so happy. 

T-shirt: Old Navy
Cardigan: Target
Scarf: Maurices
Pants and Shoes: Cato

If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments below. I love hearing from you all! Hope you're having a great week and thanks for visiting!

A Quick Post Before Bed

Hello everyone,

I hope your weekend was grand. Here are a few updated pictures of my bedroom mirror:

This mirror has gone from gold to purple to now a very light blue. 

It matches our bedroom colors from our room makeover back in February. I love it and achieved the look by using a dry brush technique over a coat of white paint. The light blue and whitre paint are both Apple Barrel brand, and this was definitely an easy inexpensive project coming in under $5.  

Have a great week fellow crafters, and I hope you enjoy our first week of October.

To Fall and New Beginings

Hello lovelies,

It has been a long absence once again.  The last 9 months have been a whirlwind for me!  I got married to my best friend, graduated college with a B.A. in English Ed., decided teaching wasn't for me right now, and lost 40 lbs.

So now that we are all caught up, how about some pictures from my time away, eh?

My January to May weight loss

My graduation on May 9th

My wedding on May 31st

This past year has definitely had its ups and downs, but it has also been one of the best years of my life.  I want to start blogging more to keep myself busy and start focusing on creating.  A few short term goals of mine are to craft more, read more, and write more.  I am currently reading Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me  (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling.  It is a combination of sound advice and utter hilarity.

A long term goal that I am working toward is starting a YouTube channel where I vlog about my life, give you crafting tips and demonstrations, etc. If you have any ideas about what else I could do in my videos, I would love to hear them! I love the YouTube community, and YouTube has been a big part of my life for the past 7 years.  Youtubers like the Vlogbrothers, Sprinkleofglitter, Joseph Birdsong, ZeFrank etc. (I could really name so many) have given me inspiration, words of wisdom, hope, and laughs when I have needed them most this past year and for the last 7 years. I want to become a bigger part of this community by giving myself a voice and actually making videos, so wish me luck!

I  WILL post another blog post this week. Stay tuned, and thanks for reading!
