I kind of love Halloween, and get WAY too excited each year planning out our family costumes.  I dread the day my boys are too cool to dress up with us.  So, for now its family themed costumes all the way!  Last year we went for the classic Halloween look, and embraced our inner monster!
Read all about the DIY's for each costume after the jump.

This past month has been soooo crazy!  I have been out of town helping with a family wedding, pretty much non stop.  So since the wedding is Saturday I'm taking an early weekend.  Im super excited to be back home, and I have a fun giveaway planned for next week too!  
So, happy Friday (I mean Thursday)

A few weeks ago I took the boys to pick blueberries.  It was such a beautiful spot, the view was gorgeous and since we got there early, it was so peaceful.  Both my boys were in heaven, and Denny tried his hardest to reenact Blueberries for Sal (minus the bear!).  We picked so many berries and even my little guy fell asleep (blueberry coma). 
We picked SO many berries, making jam was the obvious choice.  
Read about the jam making and cute DIY way to package them, after the jump!

Making your own wall art is actually so much fun!!  And cheap (which is always great).  I mean, its always fabulous to have some pieces from a loved artist, but if your going for the gallery wall look that can get pricey. 
I have been seeing some amazing DIY artwork lately, so I rounded up my favs!  

1.  Love the pink, red, yellow art from A Beautiful Mess.

2.  This pixel painting from Wit & Whistle is gorgeous.

3.  I am kind of obsessed with this geometric art painting from Persia Lou, it is so unique.  The frame she makes for it is perfect.

4.  Gotta love the paint chip art,  it's cheap and looks great.  I am totally in love with this color combo from remodelaholic!

5.  Oh Happy Day's series on DIY affordable art is great.

6.  Love Homey Oh My and her awesome DIY's, including this painting.

7.  I tried this art DIY, from Womens Day, a year ago and it turned out amazing, I still LOVE it. 

8.  Style Me Pretty and their impossible to mess up abstract art.
