--------------------->  We took a trip to Tate Farms this weekend to the pumpkin patch.  I'm so upset that my camera died but Aniyah loved the hay maze and picking out her pumpkin.  It was almost too cold to stay so we spent roughly an hour there and left.

It was so nice that my friend Rhonda was able to come with us.

-----------> we are off to make an attempt to carve a pumpkin. Hope you all had a fabulous weekend.

| Christmas Gifting |

Monday, October 22, 2012

------------------->   I always struggle on what to get my mothers for Christmas, yes I'm already thinking of Christmas gifts.  Each time I run across something I think they may enjoy I jot it down. So far I have three things on my list. I usually like to include something "crafty" and then the rest probably a fashion and/or beauty item.  They almost always expect me to give them something that includes something with pictures of Aniyah so I defintely put that on the list.

1.  Paislee Press | 2013 Calendar Kit
     I think this is something perfect that I can include pictures of Aniyah as well as allowing them to have a  calendar on their desks at home or either work.

2. Thierry Mugler | Alien perfume
     Absolutely love this perfume. A lot of times I don't like to purchase things for people unless I'm 100%certain that it's a fragrance that they love but I'm positive they will love this one.

3. Turbie Twist | Hair Towel
     I love my turbie twist for my wash days.  Aniyah and I both have one and for only $5.99 at Ross, it's realy worth it.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for things to get your mother and/or mother-in-law or any close friend for the Holidays please let me know. Hope everyone has a great week!

| Closet Makeover |

  1. Hi Tania I love your album and was wondering where you got the mask and the stick pins? Thanks Rhonda
    Hi Rhonda! The stick pins are from Making Memories Spook Alley collection I believe. I'll double check that tonight and I used Making Memories Spook Alley Slice cartridge to cut the mask and then used Glossy Accents on top.

I am definitely in need of a MAJOR closet makeover. I'm way too embarrassed to show pictures of how it looks right now but I'm thinking I'll record the before and after and post it here when I get done. Where we currently live does not have the space for the dream closet I'm thinking I want so I've been trying to find ways that I can arrange/re-arrange things but before doing that, a major purge is necessary.  I was trying to give myself some guidelines as far things I haven't worn in in the past 3 months, it HAS to go!  I'm starting tonight so wish me luck.

Exhibit A

Items I'm thinking about getting:
1.  Non-Slip hangers (TJ Maxx, Target, Marshalls, etc)
2.  Shoe shelf/racks to organize shoes
3.  Coat hooks for purses/bags, scargs, belts

If you have any ideas or tips for cleaning/organizing small closets/spaces please let me know.  Have an awesome week!

---**I fell in love with Witch Hazel the minute I saw it was to be released at CHA. I love all their Mini Books and I had fun starting this album.  I will continue to add to the pages and hopefully have a full update at the beginning of next month. Can't believe we are already in October!
