buy that purple dress, since I only had 1 dress that still fit me and a good 6-8 Sundays left. Then I was buying a baby gift for a friend and realised Harrison NEEDED to have a few new cold weather basics since Charlie was a summer baby, and then today I really blew it at Old Navy, just going to "peek" if they had anything left in their Halloween $2 sale,

Nanny Goat forever ago) cookies and deserts on another ring, and then the rest just in my recipe box. If you like my recipe cards I put them in PDF file and you can download and print them by clicking HERE.I'm not entirely finished yet, but I got my first batch of recipe cards typed up, laminated and punched and I love them! It's hit me that I only have 3 weeks give or take a few days before my life gets turned upside down and inside out with a new baby and I have several projects hanging out there unfinished, time to get busy! Anyways, I really love my new recipe cards, I'm going to put my top 30 or so easy dinners on one ring, (idea I got from

Edit: 9/10 download link updated! Let me know if you have any problems opening it! Thanks!I played around with a spider web template from Martha Stewart's website and came up with these printable candle shades! I printed mine on vellum, but it would work just as well printed on regular paper. You basically just have to cut the sheet in half lengthwise and trim edges, secure each wrap in a circle with double stick tape and then set your little "lantern" over a tealight in glass. (or if you are like me and have little hands around that won't leave them alone, get those little battery votives and drop one in the middle.) You can download the spider web sheet by clicking HERE. They are my favorite Halloween decoration at the moment! I have big plans for the wall above them, stay tuned...
If you use these, I have one tip, I put the printed side on the inside of mine, so it's hard to see the spider and web in daylight, but when it gets dark they look really cool, and you can see the design inside when you look down at them.

We are on round 2 of the fever bug, 2 kids on the mend and the other 2 down now- today I told them we'd make some Halloween decorations. I can't get out to buy the felt but I love this idea from Living with Lindsey: She made her own patterns to make the Pirate Pumpkin kits she saw in the PB catalog. You can see hers and get the patterns HERE.

My mom has one of these and I was thinking of him last night as I went to bed, thinking about how our week off from school is not looking so fun now that we've got 2 sick kids over here. I think we all feel a little bit like this guy today.
PS Mr C thinks it is the scariest thing ever (besides the skull head who's eyeballs and teeth pop out while he screams) and Miss E thinks he is the funniest thing ever because she is sure he just needs to go potty.

I saw this awesome, sweet print and decided I have another favorite artist to add to my sidebar list- Rob Ryan creates amazing artwork with paper and scissors. Reading this one made me cry a little: You can see more of his sweet work, and read his blog, or find his shop HERE.

So my mom is actually the only one who requested the recipe, but it's the best pumpkin bar recipe out there in my opinion (especially when my friend Gina makes them) and I wanted to share it with you. Plus I needed a reason to show off one of my cute recipe cards! I made 6 different colors and designs, for different categories of recipes and they are simple and cute if I do say so myself! I'm still typing my collection and I can't wait to have them all done, laminated and stuck on rings!
