Gotta Love a Pizza Party!

Normally when Travis is home, we have pizza once a week and that day is normally on Sunday when it is football season. 
I still pretty much have pizza once a week but this week I decided to invite my neighbors over for a little pizza party when I saw the awesome deal that Safeway is running. 

Buy 2 Safeway Select Pizzas and get a FREE case of Dr. Pepper, Diet Dr. Pepper, or Dr. Pepper 10 when you use your Safeway Club card.
If you don't have a Safeway Club Card, it is so simple to sign up! You can sign up in the store or even do it online and it doesn't take much time at all.

Fall Ruffled Burlap Berry Wreath

I kept seeing so many great fall wreaths out in blogland and my fall wreath could definitely use a face lift so I decided to go ahead and make a whole new one.

I like this burlap wreath from Becoming Martha and thought I would try something similar. 

Here is my Fall Ruffled Burlap Berry Wreath (say that 5 times fast! lol)

Here is a quick tutorial on how I created it.
Supplies:
-Wreath form
-For the brown burlap, I bought the burlap garland at Michael's.
-Red burlap
-Floral Pins
-Berry garland (also from Michael's)
-Small Glittery Pumpkins (from Hobby Lobby)
-Ribbon

Simple Plate Wall

We have had these silver plates since we lived in KY and I have JUST now got them up on the wall. 

Yeah, it has been a while but with moving twice I just now got around to it.
We bought them at one of our favorite thrifty antique stores and I left them as is with the patina instead of polishing them back to the silver. I liked the aged look and well, I know the patina will just come back anyways.

This was a really simple project and I am sure you all can figure it all out but I will still share how I hung my plates.

 I pulled out all my plates and laid them out to see what I had.

I then took out some craft paper and traced around each plate.

Tasty Tuesday: A Taste of Fall

We have had some cooler weather the past couple of days which has gotten me more in the fall mood. 
I did a little searching around on Pinterest and found some great fall related ideas to help get all of you in the mood as well if you are not already.
Maybe these will help jump start some fall crafting for me. I saw many great wreaths while I was browsing so I think a new fall wreath may be in my near future! :)

Here are the lovely ideas:

Autumn Inspired Hostess Gift

Hey everyone! I hope you had a lovely weekend! 

I want to share my autumn inspired hostess gift with you today.
 
I went and did a little shopping at Cost Plus World Market over the weekend. 
 I ALWAYS enjoy shopping there. They have a little of everything and it is all so fun! Even Travis enjoys going there with me and he specifically enjoys the food section.

I wanted to put together a fun hostess gift and knew that I could find everything that I would need at World Market
When I arrived, I decided I would browse the entire store first before deciding what was going to make the cut and be included in my gift. And boy, was it hard to decide what I wanted to put in my hostess gift since the store is full of awesome items! 

World Market makes it so easy to create a gift though with their fabulous Create a Gift section chocked full of gift bags, boxes, baskets, wrapping paper, cards, and more!

Autumn Subway Art Printable

I thought I would give a go, finally, at making a printable. 
I've loved so many and I played with things here and there but I have never made anything to share with you and with Autumn right around the corner, I decided to make a little Autumn Art.

Click on the image to take you to the download page.
 



By the way, sorry I've been a little hit and miss lately! 
I feel like I have a bit of writer's/creativity block so I haven't been wanting to post just anything random. 
I am hoping that I will get some crafting mojo back and I will have some fun things to share again so bare with me for a while! Please! :)
