DIY Turkey Goodie Bags and Holiday Kid's Crafts

Hello, it's me. Hello, can you hear me? Hello from the other side.
I must of thought of posting a thousand times.

 If you don't get that reference above well then we simply can't be friends anymore.
As far as for the rest of you, hi, pals! I'm back! Hard to believe it's been quite a few weeks since my last post but man has this month been rough. We just got back from the Virgin Islands where I was forced to sleep in, spend long hours in the sun with a cocktail in hand, and swim in the crystal blue ocean. PURE TORTURE, I tell you. But enough about that, let's talk about this simple Thanksgiving project Little B and I created a few weeks ago.

I have a stash of white glassine bags hiding out in my craft room collecting dust and I thought it would be fun to create some cute Thanksgiving goodie bags; you know something to keep the kids entertained while they're waiting for dinner or to keep them out of our hair while the adults are STILL trying to enjoy their meal (we have a 2, 3, and 6 year old at our holiday gatherings).

I call these "Fowl Play" goodie bags. Haha, get it? Oh, I crack myself up.
I know the word "blissful" isn't exactly what comes to mind when attempting to craft with a two year old, which is why I try to keep our collaborative projects quick and simple. These goodies bags met both of those goals. 

At this age, I find it's best to just let tots go to town when it comes to painting. Thankfully, the watercolor trend is still going strong these days because that's exactly what Little B's "artwork" reminded me of.
Then I finished up the bags with the turkeys that I cut out using my Silhouette Machine.
The bows were left over from my no-sew bunny ear gift bags.  
Then just fill the bags up with little treasures and trinkets ( play-doh, bouncy balls, Matchbox cars, etc...)

Love to see more holiday kid's crafts?!
I'm super excited to share the fun, holiday series I'm a part of over on Instagram

October 2015 DIY Projects and Decor in Review

Happy Monday, friends. I hope you all had a delightfully, spooktacular weekend. We headed out of town (actually out of state) to visit with my best friend and her family for the holiday.  It was loads of fun but like exhausting- kind-of-fun. Little B had his first sampling of candy this weekend and let's just say him and his spiked blood sugar pretty much shut down their Halloween party in the wee hours of Sunday morning. Needless to say I'm yearning for a weekend from my weekend!

In case you missed it, here's what went down in the month of October.

I shared a candy-less Halloween idea for ghouls! Insert nail in the coffin jokes here.

I joined the cool kid's hand lettering club and spilled the beans on how you can join too!

Last month, my anatomy lab opened for business. Unfortunately, we received an eviction notice and it'll be closing down this week. All lobotomies have been postponed until further notice. Muhahahaha.....

Gave Little B a boost with this fun DIY step stool.

Wrapped up the month with a simple but charming project; hanging drawer knobs on the wall!

November is gearing up to be an even busier month! As always, thanks for being a friend and dropping by to read all about my DIY and home decor shenanigans. There's even more to be found on Instagram...come hang out with me!

Happy Halloween Eve! Let's be many of you need to make another candy run before tomorrow because SOMEONE already ate all the Snickers bars? I admit I've been that person in the past #dontjudge Well, I'm assuming most of you have a weekend full of holiday festivities so let's get to it; this week's Dose of Delight!

Here's a round-up of favorite projects, links, and reads from this week.
In the spirit of Halloween, I'm keeping with the theme all things spooktacular!
53 Spooky and Creative Halloween Projects from Country Living
Doesn't this send chills down your spine?

I haven't seen many of these but I'm thinking maybe sometime this weekend  I need to pop some popcorn, turn off the lights, and throw one of these on!

I'm not sure if hanging a sign like this on your door is a guarantee for your house to be egged  or your pumpkins to be drop-kicked across the yard, BUT it's cute none the less!
You can download the free printable here.

Speaking of treats, aren't these darling?
I mean I don't usually say that about spiders but they're just as cute as a button!
