Halloween Crafting Ideas

I am an Oriental Trading Ambassador and receive products to facilitate my posts. All opinions are my own. The girls have been begging for an art activity with painting, so Saturday was art day. I have been wanting to make a Halloween wreath for our barn door. We decorate the barn as a (not so scary) Haunted House for the littles each year, but the entry door is always lacking. I thought what better way to keep the girls occupied while I craft than to have their own Halloween projects? I have been planning this activity day for a few weeks, and it was so easy to order all the supplies we … [Read more...]

Sorry Not Sorry & JennShuey Designs

Hello blog. I'm so sorry to have neglected you, but 2017 got off to a really busy start. I am a blogger, but blogging isn't my business. Blogging is my hobby. Sometimes it's fun, sometimes I want to walk away for a little while, but in the end, I find my way back to the blog. There's just something about putting words down that is a calming release no matter what the subject matter may be, but it doesn't pay the bills. Last year I started a small personalized home decor and vinyl business. I didn't sit down one night and decide I wanted to jump into the vinyl design world. It just sort … [Read more...]

How I Staged an Autumn Theme with Oriental Trading

I love exploring yard sales, but we don't see very many near my house in such a rural area, at least not community type yard sales. I jumped at the chance to participate in a community yard sale with some of my family this weekend. I find they are great ways to get some of the clutter out of my house while also doing a little networking for our vinyl designs and woodworking business. This particular community sale is setup more like a craft fair. There is a theme, and everyone decorates their yard. This year's theme was super easy, Autumn. I want to show you how I incorporated my handmade … [Read more...]

The Glade Autumn Collection Has Arrived

We are only a few days into September, and I am already rejoicing the changes in the air. The scents of Autumn engulf me as I walk through the yard, past the muscadines, pear tree, and apple trees. We have a multitude of pecans and walnuts hanging on the trees, and my heart just isn't in a Summer place anymore. It's amazing how much has changed in one week. Last Wednesday Ben and I spent the morning selling at the flea market. The humidity was so thick by 10 A.M. we were sweltering and ready to pack up early. Two days later hurricane Hermine graced us with a beautifully cool 74° day without … [Read more...]
