Today I have another amazing guest blogger today! Since today is October 1st, I thought it would be great to have Jen, from In God's Time...Not Mine, visit us and tell us her amazing story.
I just want to start with a huge thanks to Bonnie for letting me guest post on her blog. My name is Jen and I am the author of In God's Time...Not Mine.
Wow…What a story! Jen, our prayers are with you. God Bless You!
Please stop by Jen’s blog today to leave her a nice comment.
Hello! How are you doing today? We have been really busy lately, as usual. I have been keeping my facebook fans updated but we have had broken bones lately including me breaking my foot. I will write a whole post about what and how that happened as well as other things going on around the house. Because I was not walking for a while, blogging has been slacking. We also had crown molding installed and I love it. I posted a pic here. I also have been busing organizing too.
Anyway, I have another guest post for you today!
Here is one of her recent posts…
Last week I showed you my barely successful attempt at hanging the thingy above my cabinets. This week I am still working above the cabinets but I actually know the name of the product that I am working with this week, letters.
Yes, I am working with letters, glue, magazine clippings, and scissors.
Hard stuff right?
I pulled out all of my tools and got to work on my first grade art project. I had been eyeing this particular project on Pinterest and I finally decided that it's time that I stop pinning so much and actually do some of these projects on my board.
This one seemed easy enough so I took it on.
I also had my eye on this one below but something about this one just didn't sit right with me. I couldn't actually imagine putting real money on letters with some glue. I mean we are in a recession and that change comes in very handy when time to mail a bill or put a quarter into the thingy to get a buggy while shopping at Aldi.
Now let's get into how I made these...
First off I brought the letters from Hobby Lobby for $1.99 a piece. The rest of the stuff I already had at home. I contemplated many different ways to get the look I wanted, one of which included spray paint. My husband vehemently declares that I am a fake gangster because I like to spray paint everything so I told him that I nixed that idea and decided to use magazine pages and glue. (Nanny nanny boo boo Mr. Scott!)
First, I decided to use colors similar to the color scheme I have worked up for the kitchen. Second, I cut them up in various shapes and sizes. I was really random and didn't have a precise method for this step.
Third, I put glue on it.
Yes, I recognize these instructions are elementary sounding but how could I possibly make this stuff sound like rocket science?
Fourth, cover the letters in whatever fashion you choose.
Last, let them dry overnight.
Now hang them wherever you like and enjoy!
Next week I am going to give you step by step instructions on how to build a rocket;) Just kidding, kidding... that rocket would definitely fall apart!
Thanks Latoya! Your letters look great!!!
Have a great day!
Good morning everyone! Today, I am back with my fall tablescape! I really liked how it turned out and I used it as my inspiration for my new fall header.
I LOVE decorating my tables. So does my daughter! I just say, “Grace, do you want to help me decorate?” and she comes yelling, “YEEESSSS!” She is totally a little me, lol! LOVE IT!
We decided to do a very simple and nature looking tablescape today.
She helped my with the pinecones.
I just love the simplicity of it!
I also love these dishes. I bought this set at a garage sale for only $15.
The kids loved smelling the cinnamon sticks with me.
My baby wanted to throw the pinecones, lol!
That’s ok with me as long as it is not a plate.
I am really enjoying the straight lines of the plates and bowls.
The centerpiece is also nature inspired.
I used more cinnamon sticks, pinecones and acorns.
I just placed everything into a rectangle platter along with this arrangement.
I think they go well together.
Here’s another view.
OK, last one! I promise.
So, there is my simple, nature-looking talblescape.
This is not too fancy. Just simple and fun!
What do you use on your tables?
Have a great day!
I was also thrilled to discover a pear tree on our new property. It is a good sized tree, about ten feet high that was laden with large pears. I think it is a Bartlett pear tree but will get a positive identification from the nursery. Like the peach trees, the pear tree likely needs a bit of pruning. I will be following the pruning guidelines for fruit trees by the Ontario Ministry of
Good morning! I am here today with another guest blogger just in time for fall!
Say hello to Jaima!
Hey, y'all! I'm Jaima, and I blog over at Ring Around the Rosies!
Today, I am going to share with you an old post of mine to inspire a little Fall creativity!
Believe it or not, the leaves are turning colors and the weather is already getting crisp here in Middle Tennessee! You can find the original post here. I hope you all enjoy.
But first, I have to give Bonnie a huge "thank you" for letting me guest post today! It is kind of unbelievable, actually. I don't remember where I first saw the idea, but in prepping for the cooler Fall weather, I decided to do a little decorating today!
I took this...
…and turned it into this…
How’d I do it?
I simply spray painted the flower pot with Rustoleum’s flat black paint.
For the pumpkin, I decided what font I wanted using plain ol' Microsoft Word and printed it out.
Then I traced it on to wax paper and cut out the “S” with an exacto knife. I taped the paper to the pumpkin and simply spray painted it.
Next time, I will definitely hand paint the letter on, because as you can see, the spray paint ran a little. There's many ways you could do this though. I bought the pumpkin with a 40% off Michael's coupon. This way, I can pull it out year after year, but you could definitely use a real pumpkin too.
What do you think???
Thanks again to Bonnie!
Please stop by my blog and say hello sometime!
Thanks so much Jaima!! What a cute and simple idea!!
Thanks so much for sharing!
Please stop by her blog today and let her know that I sent you!
Have a great day!
