Welcome Fall 2019

We are 8 days into the Autumn even though temperatures are sometimes confusing to us as to which season we are really in. Today we welcome a new month. It is almost hard to believe we only have three months left in this year before we will be ushering in 2020, Lord willing. Fall decorations are being put out in many homes and on porches. I love all the pretty colors of Fall; the bright yellow and orange mum plants and the brown, green, and yellow leaves on the trees and the ground. I love the cooler weather and being able to shut off the air conditioners in the windows and letting in the fresh air through open windows and doors instead. There is nothing like a cup of tea or coffee early in the morning enjoy that fresh crisp morning air.

Plans are already in the works for Thanksgiving 2019 which is a mere 8 weeks away. I love the family gatherings and all the fine delicious foods and desserts that many Moms and Grandmas will be making for their family. Time moves fast so its always wise to plan in advance so that you the planner can also enjoy the day with your family. Browse my website and see if there is anything I can supply you with in decorating your home for the holidays. If it says its the item is no longer available and you desire that specific item contact me so arrangements can be made to make and supply you with whatever it is you see that you like. Late this month and early next month I will be listing items to be used to decorate your home for the Christmas season so be sure to check back in the coming weeks to see what items become available for purchase. Let me help you make your home festive for the Holidays.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month so ladies please get your check up and have your mammograms. Early detection is important for treatment and saving your life.

Thank you for stopping by and I wish you a blessed Autumn Season and coming Holidays.

Peace and Blessings,
Walk in Creativity

Fall is a Month Away.....

Some people decorate early for Fall and I am one of them. I decorate so early for Christmas that I started decorating early for Autumn so I could get a chance to enjoy the fruits of my labor before the end of October when I start transforming my home into a Holiday Haven. I have even started making things for Christmas as well as a few things for Fall that I have shown you in previous posts.

Project #1 My Square Pumpkins

Love my square pumpkins and that mailbox in the background I will be transforming into a Santa Box for letters for Santa in a few weeks.

Project #2
My Country Christmas Signs.

Project #3 My Tic Tac Toe Board

Signs, Part 2

Had fun making signs for my home. I love the open houses and boxes I found at the dollar zone stores. I pulled out my chalk paints and glue and got to putting together the signs I wanted to display.

#1 My Welcome Sign

#2 The EAT sign I made for my Kitchen

Signs, Signs and More Signs

Signs seem to be in and there are a lot of beautiful signs in the store. I bought a few and I made more then a few. I love making things and displaying them in my home. It brings me joy in doing it and a smile to my face when others visit and admire my work.

#1 Sunflower signs for my Daughter

#2 Gather door sign

#3 Farmhouse Chair

Found this blue chair at a thrift store. Perfect Farmhouse decor bones. I popped the snowman and wreath off the blue chair and painted it with black chalk paint and decorated it. PERFECT! Just the look I imagined when I saw it in the store.

#3 Farmhouse sign

Found these two cute farmhouse animal shaped dishes 1/2 price, went home found an old sign painted it black and used E6000 to attach the dishes to the wooden sign when it dried and hot glue  the rope on the back so I can hang it on my wall.

Decorate Without Breaking The Bank

When I am in the early stages of thinking what new projects I will embark on to come up with a design I desire to showcase in my home  the first place I go to before I go to the store or the catalogs to order something is my basement and garage. Its my best place to shop free of charge. I find that I usually have on hand something I can re-purpose to develop the design I am aiming to achieve. I recently decided to decorate my home in the Farmhouse Style. I have always loved country and Farmhouse is close to decorating Country Style.

I found all I needed was wood, chalk paint, a glue gun and Gorilla glue to make what I wanted. I started pulling out old wood signs and began painting. My Farmhouse colors are black, white and green. I already had green and white in my home so I really just needed to add some black.  Farmhouse decor seems to be the craze now when I was already decorating farmhouse style to a degree for years so it didn't take many projects for me to do to achieve that perfect farmhouse look.

I had my first trip to Hobby Lobby this month and I must say I am hooked. Kirklands is a nice place as well. This time of the year you can catch a lot of seasonal sales because the stores rushed to get fall stuff out. I loved all the 60-80% discounts. I am not ashamed to say I love the Clearance section in the stores. You don't have to spend a lot of money to design or redesign your home, re-purpose what you already have. I have been having fun going farmhouse!

Hydrangea Wreath

This wreath is the perfect every day wreath for your front door, above your fireplace mantel or on any wall in your home that you are trying to make a focal point. It is created with three white and two green hydrangeas upon a bed of green leaves and ferns. Although it would be lovely to display this wreath on your outside door I recommend you hang it on a door that is covered by a porch to protect its beauty from the elements. The wreath is approximately 24 inches in diameter. Let me custom make a wreath for you.

Prices can range from $25.00 and up depending upon what you want.

Don't Let Fear Hold you Back

Don't be afraid to try for fear of failure. Nothing and no one is perfect. Mistakes and do overs help us perfect our craft. We learn from mistakes what not to do the next time. Even if it takes you several tries before you get it right that's ok. That is how we all learn. True, some learn faster than others but never let that make you want to give up because you are not one of them. Keep working at it. Don't let what you see others do or the attention they may be getting discourage your journey. If first you don't succeed try again and be proud of yourself for trying and not throwing in the towel. All things take time. You can do it!
