my try at creativity

Last year I won a blog giveaway and got a years subscription to Woman's Day magazine
quite honestly it's one of my most favorite things! 
The amazing recipes that come from it.. mm yum!  And then I get some of my artsy fartsy stuff from it too, remember my watermelon cake for 4th of July?  Well see here if you need to be reminded!

Here are my newest fall decorations.  I shared most of it here in this post....
I L.O.V.E. this wreath, it's creative and unique!  The best thing about it is it has some red leaves hidden there that match my accent wall that is diagonal from the fireplace... it looks great in my living room!

yes, that is a candy corn garland.  The hubs and I had decided to celebrate that I passed my test last week by making some home made nachos, drinking some beer, and watching a movie of my choice!  Well we got close..... we made nachos (my fave!), drank some beer, he watched football and I worked on my garland.  Some couple hours later I had finished it, I love it!  Would I do it again? Heck no!  I have so many little holes in my fingers from the needle, so not fun! lol

thanks for the compliments! Kristen I have to admit that if you go through the womans day for that month the garland is in there so it's not my idea! But the spiders on the end is totally me! = )

Wow, that's all so creative. I want to try some of those things, but I get so overwhelmed at the idea of screwing it up and wasting money. Mostly I buy stuff already made at Michaels :)
