--get November birthday cards and gifts

Thursday Tutorials--Paper Trees!

I found this online and can't wait to try it out for holiday decor and craft shows. Looks like you can make this from thicker cardstock/ paper or fabric using nesting scallops. Enjoy!

Inspiration Tuesday--Pinterest!

I'm beginning to really love Pinterest lately and find that I'm searching there more and more for just about everything. It's my inspiration for new crafts, household projects, and more. This week, I found some new ideas for a few of my organizational pieces from my last Willow House party, and I can't wait to use them around the house.

Almost Back to Normal!

After a whirlwind month and a half, I'm wrapping up the Heartsy deal. All vouchers must be used by Nov. 1st, so I'm finishing up current orders and getting the last of those Heartsy orders coming in. I finally feel like I'm seeing the light and able to get caught up. I have 2 craft shows in November to prepare for, as well as getting the online shops ready for holiday orders.

Back to normal blogging this week!
