Pintervention Intervention

I see stuff like this and I want to make it. Help! Seriously I need a Pintervention Intervention of some kind. I know I don't have wood like that or lettering rub-ons. Oh, and I really do not have wall space! My walls have so much hanging on them that there is not much free space.

I love to decorate with things I make, photos and crosses. I love sparkly things. I never say no to a knick knack or wall decor at a garage sale. 

As a part of my Pintervention Intervention process, I went to Hobby Lobby and took photos of things I like. I told myself if I took pictures of what I liked instead of throwing it in the cart, and I got home and still drooled over the stuff then I could justify buying one or two of the items later on. Or at least I had something to post about on my blog!

So even though I need this Pintervention Intervention, that does not mean I still cannot "window shop" or ogle cool stuff and share it with you.

Here's some of the coolest finds I have seen lately!

A Christmas tree made of crates and decor. *love*

Get some inexpensive plates (Hi, Dollar Tree!) and let your kiddos use a Sharpie marker
 to decorate. Bake for 30 minutes at 300. Make sure people know these are decorative, you won't
want to eat off them. You can also put a clear sealer over them to keep them longer. 
(Saw this idea on Simply Kinder group on Facebook)

Photo ornaments! Love this diy idea!

Details HERE!

I've been baking a ton lately...made some sugar cookies.

And Loaded Oreo Cream Cheese Brownies!

Photo and details HERE.

Other than that, I have been a busy hamster grandma.

Two Sentence Scary Stories...eeeekkk!!!

I don't know what is scarier than Black Friday shopping but I love scary stories. These are scary ones that are made up of two sentences. These would be good story starters for your students, too (some of the tame ones, anyway!).  Source: Reddit

Turkeys, y'all!

Check out this beautiful Iranian tile piece:

So beautiful, so realistic. I would totally do this if I won the lottery! Something like this would be in my freakin' living room.

Then I would probably never leave my house!!

Oh, and meet my newest Venus Flytrap, Aphrodite!!! I love it.

So I have been feeling the need to bake lately. This week I am going to make one of my much-asked-for apple pies. I did make rainbow fun cupcakes with Harrison.

They were so yummy! I think they lasted a day in our house. :)

And I finally uploaded some pics of me in my Snow White costume...

I am so glad my mom helped me with the skirt. What a pain it ended up being!! Next year, I am either going to be Supergirl (with my blonde wig) or a Ninja Turtle. Definitely something easier since I already own both!

Here is my wig. I know I make a better brunette!!

So we are busy making Thanksgiving prep...

And yep, I have that child that only eats the rolls. 
Happy Thanksgiving!!!
