Give Thanks

Fall is definitely here now.  I love the crisp days and the turning leaves.  And I love the fall decor!  This is a little piece that I made last fall.  I got the idea from etsy, but I knew that I could make it myself for way cheaper.  I used chipboard coasters, and stamped the letters.  I chalked the edges and added eyelets to the corners. I strung a ribbon through the eyelets, and done!



Monster Book of Monsters

My daughter Riley set out to make a very special present for her best friend’s 13th birthday. . . . a handmade “Monster Book of Monsters” from Harry Potter.  Riley did the research, determined all of her supply needs, and constructed the whole thing with very little help.  (I advised on glue choices and the husband advised on drilling & mounting the eyes).  Having looked on Etsy at the choices there for this little prop, I feel like Riley could sell these.

The “book” is actually a wooden box, so it can be used for storage.
