The Journey

Change of Address

change-of-address

Our blog web address has changed!  I’m excited to announce that you can now find our blog at http://www.onceuponacraftblog.com.  While you will still be redirected to the new address via the previous http://www.onceuponacraftblog.wordpress.com, now it’s a little easier to remember if your just typing it in.

I hope everyone is doing well and loving this fall weather as much as I am!  I was finally able to get my porch decor put together and have switched out the decor in my wood box table centerpiece!

I bought these darling fabric pumpkins from JoAnn’s while they were 40% off a few weeks ago and gathered up the pine cones in the forest where my husband and I stayed in a cabin for his birthday in August.  He was so amazing and patient to drive me around on the ATV to hunt out the perfect cones.  I came home with a grocery bag packed so full I could barely tie the handles!

I made this cute “Happy Fall Ya’ll” sign using a blank sign from Walmart and the design image purchased through my Silhouette Studio design store.  I cut the image in vinyl and used as a stencil to paint the lettering with Fairy Chalk Mother’s Paint in Taos (aqua color) and Merba Lerba (orange color).  Walmart has really stepped up their craft aisle in my area and is now becoming a quick go-to for me in a pinch.  I also got the pumpkins and straw bails from there.  It was the first store I saw carrying them and I had been WAITING to be able to buy them!  The tin with yellow mums was purchased at JoAnn’s as well as the wood planked pumpkin.  The door, reclaimed wood planter (turned upside down), mini milk can, wire pumpkin and ladder all purchased from various local vintage markets and collector friends.  And the Antique Fair Flea Market sign is a surprise purchase from my husband when we were camping in Lava Hot Springs, Idaho earlier this summer.  He found it in the clearance section of the KOA store for $5!!  All of the mums purchased are from Home Depot.   img_4341

New tutorials are coming soon!  I already have all of the pictures collected and now just need to write the post.  What do you want to know how to make?  Let me know in the comments!
