i will admit, i have never really liked halloween and a few years ago my kids decided they really didn't want to dress up anymore. i was secretly excited because i didn't have to worry about costumes anymore. i know, i am a bad halloween mom!! a few weeks ago, my son (who is in fourth grade) decided he wanted to make a costume for the school halloween parade. i thought it was great, the best costumes are hand made. so this is what he came up with. super easy and SOOOOOO cheap. i LOVE it!!!!
i am sitting here on my day off watching our first snowfall trying to think of something wonderfully inspiring to write about. i have been seriously lacking in this area lately. i feel a little boring and dull. i have no new pictures or stories so i will leave you with these beautiful snowy pics i found on pinterest.
have a super fabulous week!!!

i was so thrilled to find this little fossil necklace the other day. i love it! the color, everything! it simply makes me happy and think of summer. our weather is getting COLD and as you know i am not too fond of the winters in alaska. this winter we are going to be super busy with basketball and traveling to gymnastics meets and hopefully we can squeeze some trips in to our ski resort.
what are your winter plans????
last week one of our friends insisted that we watch this documentary called catfish. while flipping through the channels they found "catfish" on hbo and couldn't stop watching. we don't have hbo so i ran to blockbuster after work and picked it up. they refused to tell me any details of the film and of course i was super interested. i wasn't sure what to expect when we watched it, but it kept our attention the whole way through and i recommend that you see it too and no it is not about catfish!!!!! so many emotions ran through me-wow!!!!!

believe that the universe is friendly
and life is on your side.
what is life for?? it is for you.
believe theres light at
the end of the tunnel.
hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. you wait and watch and work; you don't give up.

about a year ago i made this little jewelry holder. i can't find the before pictures of this frame, but trust me it was the ugliest 70's framed fabric picture you could imagine.
i popped the picture out, covered it with this cute fabric i found at joann fabric, painted the frame and it was done....sooooo easy!!!! the best part is the frame only cost $3 and both the paint and fabric was left over from other projects. i hung this in my closet and have been adding fun new accessories to it ever since!!!! love love
