Holy crap you guys, WHERE did November go? Did you ever have one of those months where you just look around and go, "Did I nap or something?"...Yeah, that was November. So, here it is, my pattern review for November on December 2nd.

No-Sew Native American Tunic in a Hurry!
Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite holidays because it's typically filled with family, friends, food and napping.

From Target $1 Aisle to My Monthly Mantels
So I walk into Target and I go straight to the dollar bins. Is it really even possible to by pass these???? Brilliant on their part!! They had these adorable Halloween burlap banners with white, black, and orange dots. I loved them so much, I had to buy two! And at only a $1 each, it's a win.

I hung the banner for Halloween and … [Read more...]
