The Latest and Greatest

I thought I'd share a few of my latest crafts! My cousin Andrea is having a little girl in December... so for her baby shower I made this super cute bow holder. Its missing the finishing touch which was a cute iron piece that mounted on the top of it to hang with. And the couple of bows that my mom and I clipped to it. But oh well, you get the picture! (yes those are rhinestones!!!)

Second is my attempt at being artsy. Chase has been wanting me to make something for this office with pictures of us. So I came up with this little photo collage. The wording says "My heart (only its a picture of a heart) Loves Your heart" Kinda cute!

And last is my very very favorite! I painted and modge podged this cute little step stool for my kitchen. The colors don't match but it is very much ME! (the other 2 legs are hot pink, and orange)

And that's it! Stay tuned for more!

A Haunting We Will Go....

I suppose it's been long enough since my last post to make everyone wonder what we have been up to. Well let me just tell ya! We headed to Idaho the first weekend of Oct for a baby shower and family picture (taken by Camille Jaques herself!) I'll post those later when they are done :) Lots of fun to be with the entire family and be together for the first snow storm of the year. Ugh, it came much to soon if you ask me!

And then there was our stellar Girls Night Out!! I can't even tell you how much fun it was because you would all be super jealous and sad you weren't a part of it. Its okay though... we'll do it again soon! Camille, Lindy and I went to dinner at Texas Roadhouse and hit not ONE, but TWO haunted houses! We got some Rockstars and slammed them, and let me just tell you - - - we made so many new friends while all hyped up! Camille got Lindy and I boyfriends at the first haunted house. We will name them Skeletor
and Chain Gang
. We had so much fun at Nightmare Mansion that we HAAADDDD to go check out Nightmare on 13th!! Totally worth it. It was full of colorful language, many trips to the floor, and lots of pushing and shoving eachother!! Who could ask for more?? Seriously??
I went to a Super Saturday that our ward hosted and made this super cute witch hat for my front door. I'm lovin it!! It made me so excited to decorate for a holiday that I went out and bought some lights and a scary window skeleton!! We are the coolest house on the block! (I'm not bragging!)
Chase is currently working weekends at the Haunted Hollow off of 12th street. He pretty much LOVES it! I'll get a picture up later of his character! It's a good one if I do say so myself! I am very excited for the coming parties and get-togethers the next few weeks brings! Not to mention dressing up on Halloween!!!
Also, I made my first investment to my new idea of a business!! What's in that big black bag you may ask... Well I'll tell ya! It's a portable massage table!! For those who haven't heard of my amazing plan, I want to start doing Spa Parties!! Much like the Scentsy, Jewelry, and many other "parties" I'll be going to someone's house and giving spa services at a much discounted rate! Hopefully they will catch on big time!! But anyway... More on that to come. I still have a few more items to purchase before I'm ready for the adventure!
