Crafty Camping Pumpkins

I am probably one of the only girls who will go through her craft room to look for projects to do while camping. Crafting is my way of relaxing.  Before we decided to head up to Jemez camping I decided I wanted to make use of my time.  I brought 2 books to read, some etsy plans, craft projects and other items to keep me occupied.

I was walking around Hobby Lobby and stubled accross these cute little make it yourself pumpkin magnets.  They were 50% off so in the cart they went.  I wasn't sure when I would do them and this was 2 years ago :)  2 years later I am sitting in a campground in Jemez making pumpkin magnets out of pre-cut foam.




I think these came out adorable!!  I didn't put magnets on all of them because I am tossing up some ideas :)

My old lady.  Fyr turned 12 in July.  

My little explorer!  She had so much fun!

Kimber and Daddy

She is so funny!


She is such a good girl.  As long as she is near us she is good.  If we walked away from the site for a quick second she watched us to make sure we came back.  :)

She loved playing in the stream!  


She jumped into the stream to save a pine cone.  She loves pine cones.  :)

The trail behind our site.  Loved the flowers.

Vacation

Just a reminder I am on vacation until Friday.  :)

AUGUST 15TH- GET 10 MINUTE STYLE FOR A "GIRLS NIGHT OUT"

"There is something quite empowering about a group of women handing in a pack, different flavors, all serving up major style!"

Minute 1-2
"Pull out a top that makes you feel like shooting a music video.  One shoulder, strapless, fitted button down or even just a solid black tank"

Minute 3-4
"Go fun with the bottom!  Skirts with flair, cropped pants that show off your ankles, skinny jeans or even a wrap skirt.  What ever you feel sexy in!'

Minute 5-6
"Girls notice shoes, so go for broke!  Push that 2 hour stiletto to 4 hours!"

Minute 7-8
"Dust off any sparkly evening bag that is normally too dressy for jeans"

Minute 9-10
"Go for makeup that procures second looks.  Think sex kitten: nude glossed lips, full bold lashes, smokey eyes and faint blush"

What I would wear and think is sexy.  From pinterest.com

AUGUST 14TH- TRY ADDING A PAISLEY PRINT WHILE POLICING YOURSELF ON THE PERFECT WAY TO DO IT.
"Fall is ahead and there is one classic print that you should bring along when you meet it: paisley"

3 way to always look stylish in paisley prints
1.  Paisley prints don't have to be stiff and conservative.  Take them to a rock and roll space by choosing them on velvet, velour and satin items to add fund and edge.
2.  Because the print can be rigid and somewhat "busy" in its intricate and ornate design, keep the shapes of the clothes simple.  
3.  Opt for accessories in paisley prints

Some of my favorite paisley items from pinterest.com

I THINK I MAY BE IN LOVE WITH PAISLEY!!
