Inspiration from a blog!

So my mother's birthday was September 23rd which happens to be the first day of Autumn {yay} and while pondering ideas, I remember that I had seen this blog post on "A Beautiful Mess" 1. I like this blog because Elsie has cute craft ideas a lot of the time and 2. her name is Elsie and some people call me Elsie. Ok anyways, ever since Fall weather started to come around, I had been wanting to make that leaf garland and amongst pondering what to make my mom for her birthday (home made things can be so much cooler than store bought items occasionally) I thought what better present than the leaf garland?? It's pretty and it's autumn themed. So I headed to Hobby Lobby (a.k.a. crafting heaven) and bought everything I needed. It was really fun to make and she loved it!

you need big open floor crafting space. it helps a lot :) 

 I bought this big bouquet of flowers while I was there and individually cut them to make it look nice in the mason jar I had also picked up. I randomly came up with this myself and thought she would like it. And they're fake so they'll last forever! or at least until the cat gets to them.
clearly up to no good.

the garland is delicately hanging on tapestry hooks in our living room. Brings the feeling of Autumn into the house quite nicely :) I'm really happy with how it turned out and I think I'm going to make some for my bedroom as well!

Tomorrow I'm heading to south side to get some black and white engagement shots of my friends Joe and Laura. I'm very excited, I love them. And my camera. Happy weekend!
