Family Time at the Corn Maze

I {big, puffy heart} my family.
What I love more, is spending great, quality time with them.
We had a chance on Sunday to  put our crazy, busy lives aside, and S-L-O-W down briefly for some fun time together.
What better way than to visit one of the local corn mazes.

So grab your candy corn and enjoy the photos.

Welcome to the...

 A view of the property from the hayride.
 Ahhhh- serenity!

Hubby is trying his hand at the rubber duck race.

And the winner is...Hubby Jagger!
 (No one was really racing him because the other pump was broken. Ha!)

The football toss~

Sid takes a shot.


And then Jess gives it a whirl...

Then on to the tractor track!

And Jess is rounding the corner...

Sid at the finish line...(not really!)

 Entering the corn maze!

 Our first stop~

Strategizing over which path to take first.
We had to answer trivia questions to determine which way to go!

An old abandoned shack in the maze.
A little spooky if you ask me.
I'm glad nothing jumped out at us!
We would have created a new path in the maze~

(Christmas card quality. Don't you think so?)

Can't wait until our next family outing~

While you're here check out the new items added to my etsy store~

More Frames...{FALL} is Framed!

I want to show you another set of frames I created for the Fall Display in the Field of Poppies booth.

Check out my "BOO" frames {HERE}

I printed the letters for this display using my handy, dandy inkjet printer on book pages from a foreign language book.  Using acrylic paint, I painted the frames with a fun, Autumn green with a little distressing. More burlap rosettes embellished with buttons finish off these rustic-style frames.


Stop by our booth in person or on FACEBOOK!

"BOO" Wooden Frame Tutorial

It's October.
I almost thought October was going to boycott showing up this year.
Summer lasted F-O-R-E-V-E-R.
It's actually still in the high 80's here.So it still feel like summer. YIKES!
Fall was taking sooooooo long to roll around.
Fall brings some pretty cool holidays.
Get it "COOL?" (Lame, huh?)
That means Halloween is around the corner.
I {heart}Halloween.
This is my MOST favorite holiday.

Currently, I'm on a frame kick.
You know those small wooden craft frames from Michael's?
The possibilities are endless with those little guys.
I've done two projects with them thus far, but tonight I will share one.

I created this project for the Halloween display in my booth.

I elevated the frames on my handy dandy bed risers and margarine tub in the garage.

I spray painted two coats of black front and back of each frame.

I found some orange Chevron patterned scrapbook paper that would be great for this project. I cut it to fit the frame.

I cut out the letters that spelled "BOO" from the Cricut. The letters are 3 1/4".

I ran the letters through my sticker maker.  This is a handy machine to have in your craft stash of goodies.

I peeled the letters and stuck them to the chevron paper.

I then laminated the sheets for durability.  The frames don't come with glass, so the lamination will serve that purpose. Just ignore the numbers.  I don't waste laminating sheets. I'm also laminating math centers for school.

I placed the letters  into the frames, but the frames looked too plain.

I quickly made a few rosettes from burlap scraps.  Not sure of whether to place the rosettes on the top of bottom, I consulted my partner in crime, Melodie. She suggested the top. I agreed with the placement.
