I love, love Fall so much. Bring on the pumpkins, the crunchy leaves, the hot apple cider AND the juicy apples. Oh yes, the apples. One of my earliest memories was eating an apple, carefully saving the seeds and then planting them in our backyard. Nothing ever grew, but I am pretty sure my dog King dug them up when I was done.

Apple pie is the one thing I love to make in the Fall. I pretty much combined like 3 recipes to make one I like best. My husband loves the cinnamon crumble top that I drizzle icing over. I love the regular crust best. But honestly, apple pie is ALWAYS good. I am in the mood to make an apple run at the grocery store and to have my house smell like cinnamon apples for a day. 

Last year, I posted some Halloween costume ideas and one of them included a jack o'lantern with a smoke bomb inside it. I found out about an article on how to do smoke bomb photography! You can read it HERE at Shutter Bombs.

Today is my birthday and I am not sure about becoming wiser....but hey, I get some cake! :)

Fun-o-ween ideas!

Squee!! My favorite season is upon us. 
And my favorite month in the whole wide world guessed it...October! I love the colors, the candy and the cooler weather.
Of course, I found some fun Fall and Halloween ideas online to share!
Okay, y'all know I am a rock freak. I have most recently been collecting small pieces of meteorites. So in my rock group, someone shared that she had been painting rocks into pumpkins. I really am going to attempt this one because rocks are free, I have paint and some time. Also, the idea of hiding them in my community is fun!

See? I told you this was cute idea!

And here are some more...
Make ya some Jell-O worms with straws.
Instructions from One Little Project.

Oh...check out this nature spider web. I saw the idea on
Facebook from Mud and Bloom, but it would be fun to go on a
nature hunt and make your own.

Handprint vampires! You can teach triangles, too.

I adore this one! You can find potato smashers at the dollar store or thrift store. I never ever would have thought to make spiders out of them. Cool idea from Young School Art.

Okay, I really like how they made a tree and then the kids made owls from paper towel tubes. I think it would be easy to make the tree in Fall colors, too. From Hello Wonderful.

And Hello Wonderful has this Boo handprint art idea!

AND they also have this very trendy and easy-to-make Halloween costume! You can be a fidget popper! Click HERE for instructions.

You can use pipe cleaners and pony beads to make some nifty pumpkins!
Great idea from Cutesy Crafts.

This is a creative art idea from The Pinterested Parent--make pastel resist mosaic pumpkins. Magnificent!
Before you go, check out this house in my neighborhood. My frame cropped out the Michael Myers inflatable...

And this is a fun one making fun of the crate challenge from Tik Tok.
