Printable Halloween Candy Gift Box

Printable Halloween Candy Gift Box

‘Tis the season for giving goodies so why not tuck them into a printable Halloween candy gift Box while you’re at it! It’s much cuter than a handful of candy and makes the perfect gift for friends and neighbors! I’m loading up a bunch to give out to a few women at my church. I’m trying to be more aware of those around me and sometimes a little seasonal treat is just what the doctor ordered. These would also be great to take to your kid’s classroom or even to the workplace to brighten everyone’s day! Tied with a variety of ribbons, these boxes are a breeze to put together.

One Room Challenge Week 3 featuring: The Mine, Article, Bellecor, Hayneedle, and Annie Selke

One Room Challenge Week 3The fact that it’s already week 3 in the One Room Challenge is making me feel equal parts excited and terrified! We still have so much to do! However, everything is in the works and I can say with full confidence that this office space is going to be amazing. It’s taken awhile to get a firm plan of action, so many decisions! But, we’ve finally gotten a handle on the overall design. Our color palette has shifted a bit from our last post (see Week 2, HERE) and it is going to be quite dramatic, especially when compared to where we started (see Week 1, HERE). We’re all about making an impact here!

Check out all the components and get a peek inside our design process!

Pastel Pumpkin Faces

Painted pastel pumpkin peopleIs there anything more magical than a trip to the pumpkin patch in the middle of fall? Crisp weather, colorful leaves falling, and the spooky anticipation of Halloween makes me giddy! Picking out the perfect pumpkin is something of an art, and I almost enjoy that more than the carving part. In fact, I don’t really enjoy carving pumpkins all that much! The goop and stringy guts all over my fingers is not my idea of a good time. So we’re swapping our carving kits for paint brushes this season! These pastel pumpkin faces are just my cup of tea this season. A pretty palette and quirky faces make the perfect pairing for pumpkins. And the best part? No pumpkin guts! Less mess, more cute, equally festive. That’s what the world needs.

This is the first of a few posts on which we’ve collaborated with the talented Michelle Christensen of My Little Belleville. We collaborated with her a few years ago on our popular succulent painted family post (remember?!) and they are here for a return visit! Stay tuned for more spooky crafts to comes!

Pumpkin Patch Car and spider web decals

Add Spider web decals to your carHave you all gone to the pumpkin patch yet? Fall isn’t complete without a trip to pick pumpkins! I love to scatter a few out on my front porch to ring in the season and welcome me when I get home from work. But what about when I’m not a home? If you’re like me, you probably spend the majority or a large part of your day in your car! Crazy as it may seem, my car is like an extension of my home. I’ve always got a change of clothes, some packages, snacks, water bottles, you name it, and I’ve got it!

With that being said, we decided to partner up with Esurance to give our cars a personalized touch for the Halloween season! If homes deserve to be decorated, why shouldn’t your car? A pumpkin patch atop your car complete with cobwebs in the windows is the perfect way to make memories wherever life takes you this spooky season. So instead of piling your pumpkins in the trunk as you leave the patch, take a cue from Christmas trees and throw them on the roof! It’s sure to bring a smile to every passing car! Another bonus? This is the easiest way to deck your car for a trunk-or-treat!

Check out the full DIY to make your own Pumpkin Patch car and get the cobweb templates below!

One Room Challenge week 2

We have joined 20 bloggers (see the full list below!) for the biannual One Room Challenge. Join us for 6 weeks as we show the start to finish of our office makeover! 

Last week I announced our participation in the One Room Challenge and showed some ahem, glorious, before photos of our office that we will be renovating. We got a late start on the challenge so we are in massive make-up mode over here, not to mention it’s our busiest time of the year plus two major deadlines this week. Doesn’t this crisis mode always seems to happen at the same time every year? Or maybe just every 3 months? 1 month?

I wanted to start with some inspiration for the room like this one above. Read on →
