Glitter Glitter Everywhere

Yesterday Kellie and I had a little crafty afternoon. She wanted to make glitter pumpkins like I made last year and I decided to pick up the Martha Stewart glitter chandelier...totally silly, but a fun addition to my Halloween decor. As you can see, Kellie got a little messy with her glitter, choosing to use her hands to spread it around her pumpkins. She glittered three pumpkins and got more and more glittery with each one:


more glitter (and jazz hands):


Full on glittery fun:


Here's one of Kellie pumpkins and the fun orange walls in the dining space of her place:


And my chandelier, which looks so cute with Kellie's orange walls:



Saturday after work I hung out with Stephanie and brought Amelia her pumpkin hat. The hat is too cute and looks adorable on her.


We accidentally woke her up when we put the hat on her and she didn't want to go back to sleep. She looks a little sleepy in this picture:


I finished another baby hat last week for my cousin's baby shower. I decided to try stripes and a new style. It turned out pretty cute I think. Seems I'm obsessed with knitting again, especially with baby hats. They're just so darn cute!


In other news, I'm attempting to participate in Ali Edwards' Week in the Life challenge. I think I will try to blog everyday this week and include bits and pieces of my day so that I have a running log of the week. This is mostly for my record, but it will give my blog readers a glimpse at my daily routines as well.

wanting to scrap, but other priorities
wishing I had time for some decor/remodel projects right now
enjoying my last week being 30

Happy Birthday a week early. I hope you last week of 30 is calm, fun and whatever you wish it to be.

Love the hats you made. Very cute. The glitter pumpkins and chandelier are pretty awesome, too.
