Crocheted Christmas Lights!

I LOVE this project - especially for beginner crocheters. It is so quick and easy, and the result is the perfect addition to your Christmas Decor. It's also a perfect little gift if you are on a budget (It literally uses next to no yarn). 

Where is this pattern you say?
I found it 
And it is amazing

Fall Wreath

I love wreaths 
1. They are CHEAP
2. They are EASY

My wreaths sound like prostit... nevermind.

Here is my FALL WREATH!!

My husband thinks it looks "too simple"
I disagree - I think it is perfect! 
What do you think?

Cocheted Bumpy Blanket - Pattern

I LOVE this blanket that I am working on. It's about 1/3 of the way done, and the more I do, the more I love it!!
I know I crochet constantly, but I have NEVER tried a blanket
That's like a person from China who's never tried rice. It is THAT tragic. 

That being said here it is:

****I found the pattern for this blanket on Mooglyblog. It is amazing!! I wish I were this creative when it came to crocheting. you can go HERE to see the original source as well as some instructional videos and pictures that may be helpful to you****

A first birthday is coming!!

Holy crap, it's been almost a year since I pushed my little booger butt into the world! A year full of eating bugs, sucking your own spit up off the kitchen floor (don't ask... I threw up a little in my mouth just thinking about it...), and playing in the toilet. Yes, my child is disgusting. And perfect. Oh so perfect. So in honor of our Halloween Baby we are doing a Halloween party for the Zoster's first birthday.

I am so excited to show you the cake I made today!

It is my first attempt at cake decorating, but I think it turned out pretty awesome! 

I can't wait to show you more tomorrow!

Three Little Pigs Halloween Costume

I have a best friend. She came and visited this week with her super cute family. As a direct result, I have wet my pants no less than 3 times. 
She wanted her family to be the 3 little pigs for Halloween this year. We worked together and whipped these little beauties out!
They'll wear them with some pink/brown.
Pretty easy weekend project - for a grand total of 5 bucks!!

Flowers: Pinned it and did it

Saw this sweet little flower on Pinterest the other day
 折纸 布艺 手工DIY 教程 衍纸  唯美纸艺雪花教程<br/>
It looked just girly enough to make my husband cringe - which means, I HAD to do it.
Here is my go at it -

They were super easy to make, and they turned out beautiful. 

The only thing I did different is I cut the 3-D part and flipped it around (so you'd see the colorful side rather than the white side. How did I secure it, you ask? Tape. Lots and lots of tape. 
Also I added a little swirl in the middle to give it a center. Because I'm an over-achiever like that. 

Anyone else give the flowers a go?

Dresser Redos

I am SO close to being done with our house redo!! 14 gallons of paint and 10,000 brain cells later, we are so happy with the results! 

My favorite redo was the dressers my mom brought from Michigan for our nursery. I searched and searched and searched for a before photo - but apparently, I didn't take a single one. You'll just have to imagine dirty white dressers with royal blue drawers and random stains and paint drips all over. 

Total cost of redo? $30 bucks

Here are the afters -

I love them I love them I love them!!
