Howdy! Thanks for checking in for Day 7 of my #31daysofpumpkins craftstravaganza! Now that my computer is back and working at optimum performance, I can finally finish posting all the awesome pumpkins I created during the month of October using only inexpensive Dollar Store and craft store finds!

I know it seems a touch silly to do this so long after the fact, but I worked HARD on those suckers! And my computer going toes up wasn’t my fault… so, I refuse to let being a little late stop me from posting at all!

Me again! Today is Day 6 of my #31DaysofPumpkins craftstravaganza! Don’t laugh because it’s already 9 days past Halloween and you think it’s past time for pumpkins. It’s not my fault my laptop bit the dust and I had to wait for my wonderful I.T. hubby to find time to fix it (alas, the cobbler’s children never have shoes…)

{And for the record, it’s never past time for pumpkins. Not even creepy bug covered ones.}

So prepare for me to catch up fast- rapid fire pumpkin posts heading your way!

Have I told you how ha...

Hey guys! Well, it’s certainly that time of year again… a crisp nip in the air, the smell of burning leaves, pumpkin on everyone’s brain… it’s FALL, y’all! This is absolutely my most favorite season- even more so now that I live in beautiful Missouri and don’t have a summer that stretches into December (thank you North Carolina)! With fall on my mind ever since the temps started dropping, I knew I wanted to dive feet first into some intensive crafting (and pumpkin pie…) ;)

Thanks to my lovely Facebook feed, I saw

You know something’s good when you make it more than once in two-week time period (and when you find yourself eating the leftovers every day afterwards until it’s literally all gone).

This is exactly what happened when I found myself standing in front of the fridge one night a few weeks ago, scratching my head, trying to scrounge up something for dinner...

There’s something so special about the Fourth of July- in fact, it happens to be one of my favorite major holidays. It’s such a no-stress type of holiday where everyone is more easygoing,  the red, white, and blue everywhere is just so darn festive, and the allure of a beautifully burst firework cannot be denied!

It’s not just special to me, though… it happens to mean a lot to my whole family too. ‘God Bless the U.S.A...

OMG y’all. I seriously think I may have just died and gone to Heaven.

No kidding.

And here’s why…

I  have just discovered mug cakes!


I know most of you are sitting there thinking, ‘Geez, Jenn- really? That mug cake sensation is almost yesterday’s news! Exactly what rock HAVE you been living under?’

So ok, maybe I misspoke mistyped. I have known about mug cakes long before now- but they were all ordinary, run of the mill, not gonna ring my bell mug cakes.

Until this one.

This mug cake, my friends, will bring...
