I love those cozy, chunky blankets that I'm seeing in stores all over but their price tag is a bit much for this girl's wallet so I looked up tutorials on youtube to learn how to make one myself. I haven't tried it yet, but will be trying it this week while the kiddos are in school and the two younger munchkins are napping. I took the liberty in sharing it below incase anyone else has an itch to make one as well:) Enjoy!!

I wasn't active on the blog during the Fall or beginning of Winter, but I wanted to share a peek into my home & projects during the fall and early winter months.
Autumn Mantel September-October (Halloween)
My mantel was featured on one of my favorite Blogger's page, BlesserHouse.com :)
"Thankful" Placemat I turned into a pillow.
-Can be found @ Target.com
After Halloween we painted the dining room and went with neutral decor for Thanksgiving.
- Valspar Signature Woodlawn Colonial Gray
Winter (Christmas) 2015
Seven days before Christmas.
The Christmas pillow with the wagon & tree was another "placemat to pillow" project.
-also found @ Target.com
Our Christmas Tablescape.
I wish I would have had the time to post these projects and decorating ideas earlier but my new bundle of joy, Derick Jr., was born December 19th 2015. I was a busy mama the last few months, especially the last few weeks. Now we are all settled into a new routine with our new special gift:) Can't wait to share more of my decorating ideas and projects in this new year! Hope you liked it!
