Follow on Bloglovin


Hello everyone! I am so excited to be back for another week of the Get Your DIY On Challenge! This week’s theme is PUMPKINS! And I bet that there will be an amazing plethora of pumpkin designs to share – I can’t wait to see what you have to share tonight!

But before we get started, thank you all so much for linking up your spooky outdoor decor this past week. It looks like there will be some pretty fun houses to trick-or-treat at this coming Thursday.  Are y”all ready for the big day on Thursday?  I need to pick up some more treats… we have been snacking on ours the odd time around here:)   It is dangerous to buy them too early!!

This week I shared how I got ready for Halloween with some beautiful textiles and pottery from Coton Colors… and the great folks at Coton Colors are doing a Giveaway right now for a $50 Giftcard!  I would love to have you enter… and hop over to see more about their amazing products as well!

    I just stumbled upon this DIY weekly project and think it’s so cute. I’m not a big DIYer but am always looking for ideas, especially really easy ones! I’ll be keeping an eye out for the holiday signs and table settings. Great idea!

      Awesome- I can’t wait to see what people come up with for those two as well- especially the signs. I think I have my projects figured out… now to actually get it done! Thanks for the visit!!
