It's that time in the year when the fall breeze starts rolling in and the leaves beign to fall off the trees. In the spirit of Halloween I decided to make a pumpkin. I can't remember a memory in my childhood of making a pumpkin and my family doesn't do it every year. Sooo this Halloween I insisted that I carve a pumpkin. :)

Big/Little Gifts [part 1]

So at the campus organization I'm involved in, we have what's called "Adopt a freshmen"... but it always reminded me of the Greek "Big/Little" idea. An upperclassmen gets a freshmen and we become like a mentor to them and spend time getting to know them and really develop a friendship.

Being a senior this year, I really appreciate having the opportunity to connect to some of the freshmen this way because otherwise I honestly probably wouldn't. Not because I don't love the freshmen [actually I'm kinda jealous of them... they are just starting such an amazing experience] but simply just because senior year is CRAZY BUSY!

Anyways! When I found out who my little was [and yes i will refer to her as that!]... I was OVERJOYED! Honestly, she's the best. So because I was so excited, I wanted to make her gifts... [because if I was a little I would want gifts.. and who doesn't love gifts?!] 

So [PART one] of the gifts I made her was this crafty Chalkboard Mason Jar. She loves the color coral so I found the color closest to coral and went for it! I saw the idea for spray painting the mason jars on Pinterest and went from there. So it's super easy and honestly not that expensive!

Fall Time = Craft Time :)

Hello Ladies!
I know I has been about three years since I have posted a blog post and yes you can disown me now (please dont though). So since it is turning fall now..its time for crafts. :) And since some pure genius invented pinterest, there are plenty of crafts to choose from. I stumbled upon a way to take boring shoes and make them gorgeous! (it's inexpensive too!)
