Good times in Tulsa, Emma got to help in the kitchen a lot-which she loves! At both sets of her grandparents homes she has a designated area for her creative play. An adorable desk at her Papa and ZeZe's and the table Glenn and I used growing up, at her Bopa and Mimi's. I love that they have a special place like that for Emma and before too long, for Stella.
Stella learned to climb the stairs and had fun on the horse. I can't believe she will be one in less than a month!

Thursday Night: Family night, which is usually spent swimming at the Y, but due to the rainy forecast we stayed home and baked this yummy dessert.
Stella participated by gnawing on a biter biscuit, her favorite treat.
While in Tulsa, I brought this wooden set of Ikea drawers to alter, it holds the girls hair accessories and jewelry. I used spray paint and the Heidi Swapp bird mask.
I found this little butterfly hook on clearance at Micheals and covered it with this fun paper. I have no idea where I will hang it. Sometimes I just need a small little project that I can complete to get the creative juices flowing.
I also but an adorable Amy Butler mini album kit (forgot to take photos) but will when I add pictures to the album. I will use it to document how Emma plays right now. I love her imagination and it seems like turning three has been a big changing point in that.
Okay, so I am making up for my absenteeism. I have decided that I will use turquoise as a fall color on my fall decor this year. I found this little pumpkin at Hobby Lobby for half off, so it was less than $3! The photo doesn't quite capture the perfect shade of blue that it is. I looove it! I also found the wire one there as well. Both will be paired with a ceramic cream pumpkin in a fall display.
Look, Cottage Living even agrees:
And finally, some other little projects:
This is a custom size album I use for my day planner. It is the perfect for 8.5" x 5.5" dividers and notebook paper I love it because it is so sturdy I know it will be fine tossing it in my purse or bag. The cover design is inspired by a mini-album made by Kristina Contes.
And some pendants:
The new home office area is coming along. We are waiting on a shipment of shelves from Ikea, and little curtain to be made by me. I can't wait untill it all comes together!
