A Very Thrifty Halloween

Pinterest. You've done it again. You've styled my house oh so fly & all for less than a dolla.

Holla.

I don't know about you all but there's just something about this time of year that gets me feelin' all crafty. 

On this weeks episode of Pinterest Production, I bring to you the super easy & super cheap....


When I saw this pic, off to the nearest Walmart I went.

A few hours later & lots of practice sketches, I had my witch silhouette.

Supplies: Black Posterboard, Chalk, Scissors, Black Electrical Tape & A Window! 

The hardest part was DEFINITELY the sketching. 


I definitely plan to keep my day job as I am definitely no Van Gogh and boy was that glaringly obvious. I draw like a kindergartner & always have. I'm talking huge balloon fingers & beak like noses. Luckily, you can use a damp paper towel to wipe & re-start. 

Thankfully, the husband came to the rescue & I think it turned out pretty cool!


On another note, a year ago today, we took off on our Caribbean adventure. 



Now, it was no Caribbean Cruise Ship, but we loved our pontoon equally as much. However, it's that time....


Time to pull her out of the water & let her rest for the winter. And as I type, I just realized our boat became a female. 

Girl power. 

But before we pulled her out, we took one last stroll...




There are still moments where I have to pinch myself & ask, do I really live here?!

We are very blessed & thankful everyday. 

On that note, I'm signing off. Happy Monday, ya 'all!! Make it a good one!
