Crafty Cuteness & Color



You might remember that my Sam LOVES the free kids 
building clinics at Home Depot.  Last weekend they had a 
special mid-month clinic in honor of Halloween, which involved 
making a really cute pumpkin basket.  (I love baskets!)

When we finished the project, I thought it would be perfect 
for holding candy, but wanted to show it off past October 
31st.  So, we decided to mod podge some Fall'ish paper 
on the outside.  I think it's perfect for November!






Some more big leaves from a recent stroll.  This time, shot from above...







Halloween 2006, when Sam was a fireman.  He'll always be my hero!

Such a cute fireman and what a great basket. I wonder if our home depot has this?

Love the basket. So cute! He did a good job on it, and the paper you added makes it perfect for fall. And dang, I'm loving those large leaves. That shot from above is awesome!

ps. That is funny that you said Luke is looking at blogs w/ you and enjoying the pictures. Would love to see a video of him! :))

Love the basket!! You guys did a great job into making it more of a fall decoration! I've never taken my older boy to the home depot workshops. We may need to start doing that. Your other pictures are adorable.

My Sammy loved those workshops too... only it made me nervous b/c his head gets really close to the hammer so he can "see" ... dang that low vision!... be still my heart... anyway...

I love the picture of the leaves taking a stroll. You captured the moment so well--I can tell there's got to be a smile hidden beneath the hair. :)

That basket is awesome. I've heard the Home Depot workshops are wonderful. I just cannot get over how enormous those leaves are ... cool picture! And isn't that little fireman just the cutest?

Mama Monkey said...

Those leaves are HUGE! I've never seen them so big before! I'm going to have to check into Home Depot. That basket is too cute!
