"A BOO-tiful Night" kit

Can you feel it? My favorite season is approaching! Even though it is still above 100 degrees here in Arizona, when I read on my calendar that September 23rd was the first day of Fall, the gears in my head switched over to the new season. I have already baked a batch of pumpkin bread this week, and our Halloween decorations are already up (I can proudly and embarrassingly say that I think we are the first and only in our neighborhood to have done so)!

This will be a busy month for me (we're celebrating 3 of our kids' birthdays tomorrow, and mine is this next Wednesday - yes, you may shower me with birthday wishes! :) (just don't have to...but seriously, if you want to, it would make my day)! But, aside from the birthdays, the rest of the month will be busy, so I thought I'd throw together a Halloween kit a little bit early...I hope you don't mind!

Also, I kind of went a little slap-happy with my paint bucket tool, so there are a LOT of papers in here. So, sorry if it takes awhile to upload the whole kit, and sorry if it takes up too much space on your computer.

With all of that said, I hope you have a wonderful October and a "BOOTIFUL NIGHT" on Halloween!

"Dryer Lint at Tiffany's" kit

Over the summer when all the kids were home, it felt like there was ALWAYS laundry to do. Instead of waking up and wearing ONE outfit for the day, it seems my kids chose to wake up and put on their outfit for the day, then change to a swimsuit (which of course meant they needed towels), and then after they played in the water, they put on ANOTHER outfit. YIKES!!! (I know, I should be more strict and make sure they have one outfit only for the day, and we did sometimes, but other times I didn't think twice about it).

Anyways, with all this laundry, and having all the kids home all day, some things got put on the back burner (hopefully I am not alone with this issue). It got to a point where as I pulled the dryer lint out, rather than throwing it away, I had a little pile that I kept adding to. One day I looked at that little pile and decided that I LOVED the look of all the different tones of gray together. I knew once the kids were back in school and I had a little more time that I was going to create a new kit called "Dryer Lint" and it was going to be all shades of gray.

As I began it, it seemed too blah, too black and white. It needed one little splash of color. I love the color Tiffany blue (like from the store Tiffany's). So, that was where this inspiration came from! And instead of the movie title Breakfast at Tiffany's, I am calling this Dryer Lint at Tiffany's!
