Thursday Night Thanks to Pinterest

I enjoyed being able to do some crafty projects over Fall Break - not as many as I had hoped, but hey! I have not crafted in so long and I just missed being "crafty."  I made this banner for our mantle using the Billionaire and Mini Monsters cricut cartridges.  I thought it turned out pretty cute for my first banner.

Thursday night, some of my friends and I got together for a Pinterest Autumn party.  It was so much fun.  Everyone brought a food (recipe found from Pinterest, of course) and a pumpkin to decorate (idea found from Pinterest, of course).  We had a blast!

We enjoyed a lovely meal with fabulous fellowship around gorgeous fall themed tables decorated by Kristen.

Then, we got busy.  It was so fun to see all the different ideas and supplies used to make the pumpkins.

A Child's Year cartridge inspired this pumpkin

I love that I did this on a fake pumpkin so I can bring it out every year!

I used the Storybook cartridge to create my pumpkin

Plans are under way for another night with food, friends and PINTEREST!
