Free Fall Printables


Welcome! Hope you are having a lovely week. I thought I would try creating some Fall printables for you to enjoy. I don't create printables very often, but I like how these turned out.

Fall Pretties

Hello! I'm so glad you're here! Did you notice that I changed my blog theme? I went with simple and blue. It's so calm and soothing, don't you think? I changed my profile picture too. I probably change my blog theme too often, but I get tired of it and need a change from time to time. Just like my decor around the house.



 I'm going to share pictures of my Fall Pretties around the house.

Halloween Treats



Hello!



 We're having some cool, breezy Fall weather here now. Leaves are turning bright, pretty colors of red, yellow and orange this year here in Indiana. I love this time of year! It is so colorful. And I love wearing my sweat shirts and jeans while we are siting around our fire pit more often!

Kendallville Apple Festival

Happy Sunday! Hubby and I had a wonderful day together today. Our day started out by going to church. We were greeters today and it is always nice to open the door and see all the smiling faces of our friends coming in to worship the Lord!! It was a beautiful service.

After church, we went to Kendallville, a town about an hour north of us, to walk around the Apple Festival.

Shoe Organizer turns Craft Paint Organizer


Hi! I bought this shoe organizer at a garage sale for $3. 




It was dirty, so I cleaned it out (every compartment) with a wet rag and touched it up with white chalk paint from Walmart. This paint isn't Annie Sloan (to be honest, I really wouldn't know that because I have never used Annie Sloan chalk paint, YET) but it is nice enough for projects like this, and smaller, from what I've read.

After the cleaning up and painting, I got together all my craft paints and a few other craft items, and organized them in the "new" paint organizer.




 I got my idea for this on Pinterest. When I saw this at the garage sale I was at, I decided to go for it!

So, what do you think? How do you organize your craft paints? I would love to see your ideas.


                                Before                          After


Thanks for visiting today. Hope you are having a very nice weekend so far!

Halloween Pumpkin Decorating Sticker Kits

Hi! Gracie here!  I'm 2 1/2 years old.

I went to grandma’s house and we went in her craft room and she let me put stickers on 
pumpkins that she bought at Dollar Tree. 

The stickers come in a package with eyes, mouths, noses and even teeth! You can also make mummy and skeleton pumpkins too.

Halloween Pumpkin Decorating Sticker Kits

 Here I am placing the stickers on the pumpkins. It was so fun!

   

It was easy for me to do all by myself!




"I did it!"

I was so proud of myself. And Grandma was proud of me too!

Thank you for visiting Grandma's blog today. Come back again soon!

Love,
     Gracie
