Countdown to Halloween!

Here is my Halloween advent calendar! I used a ton of Halloween scrap paper and my circle cutter. I then glued them to two 12 X 12 scrapbook pages and strung them together. Each day we will open the circles and have a fun fall craft, recipe, or adventure to do!

Hutch Shelves #30--DONE

The bottom cabinet of my hutch pretty much had become a place to toss things that I didn't have space for! Just a big mess. After reading this post at The Idea Room I decided I needed to clean it out and make it more functionable! I even had bought the same little drawer containers from Target (mine are black) and even though I had less space I was determined to make it usable!


Just a big random mess! So I cleared it out and labeled my bins. I feel so organized now:

Quick Fix #4 DONE

So I bought two of these frames at Target on clearance. I thought they were super cute and wanted to put them on either side of my hutch. The only problem is that they would only hang one way:

Its bothered me ever since I hung them up that they were facing the same way. I've wanted to change it every time I looked at them. I decided to just do it:

Awwwww so much better! I couldn't get good pictures though because of my dining room light fixture. It was hanging in my way but you get the idea :)

Cork Board LOVE

I found this four pack of 12X12 cork board at Rite-Aid when I was looking through the school supplies and I just HAD to have it:

I've been really unhappy with the space on the wall above my scrapbook table ever since I re-organized the area. So I decided to use the cork board to hang unused/duplicate pictures.

So I went through my scrapbook stash to find some inspiration. I decided to go very simple and just spelled out the word LOVE down one side. Then I used coordinating border stickers down the other side:

Close Up:

Really plain, simple, and easy but I LOVE the way it looks now:

P.S. I know the pictures are silly and put on funky but that is how I like it!

Interview Your Toddler!

I don't know why it never occurred to me to do this before now! I had to interview Jaden for his "special day" at Pre-K and his responses surprised me. They also made me feel proud and laugh! I highly recommend interviewing your child! I think I will do this twice a year and put it in his scrapbook as the first page. Here are some questions to give you some ideas (plus my son's hilarious answers lol)!

Favorite thing to do with your feet (smell them)
Favorite thing to do in the kitchen (rocking around)
Favorite thing to do with your parents (sit on Dad's lap)
Favorite thing to do outside (play with our dog)
Favorite thing to do inside (play in my room with chewbaca, monkey, woody, and buzz)
What makes you giggle (when Dad tickles me and I tickle him too)
Favorite toy (monkey because I got him at the zoo)
Favorite food (peanut and butter jelly sandwich)
