Halloween Pumpkin Crafting and Sunday Social

Happy almost October! Last night, I was invited to a Pumpkin crafting party and I am not gonna lie, it was a great excuse to go through all my crafting supplies. I really have to start getting this obsessive craft buying under control. My closet looks like a Hazmat Hobby Lobby.

It was nice to meet some new girls, and get our craft on. After spending more time than I would admit looking on Pinterest, I came up with a game plan for not one, but three pumpkins. I only finished one, but I will do the other ones today. I promise. I am also so thankful for my friend Ashley who is a Bow-DAZZLER.

The results were amazing! I decided to get my modge podge on, and tear strips of two different kinds of damask scrapbook paper (shocker) and modge podge to pumpkin. One of the girls did a straight up masking tape one, I think I might borrow!

This was hosted by Scarlett who I have the pleasure of knowing most of her cute life. Her cousin has been my best friend for 30 years. If that is not exciting enough, our husbands are related-ish. But sadly, if I thought about it hard enough-that would make me her kind of sort of new step aunt and that is just silly...Anyway, more importantly she will be blogging soon and I am excited for her.

It's Sunday Social time!!
