Making the Flute Cool

Last night, Mr. G and I were talking about instruments and how much we love them. For our family night, we decided to look at all of the instruments through You tube of course. {Wow- there are tons of talented people!} It was a really fun night to expose Little Miss E to all of the neat instruments out there {yes even the Tuba! Can you believe my band teacher wanted me to play the tuba when I was in 6th grade? I have no idea how I would have carried it. All I know is it would have been a funnier scene of a short girl carrying an instrument as a big as her compared to my violin case?! haha} We let her pick her favorite. It was a tie between the flute and the violin.

Anyway, I had to share this movie. I will let it speak for itself.
Awesome huh?
{Totally great- he is inspiring kids everywhere!}

DIY Fall Garland

I am so excited to tell you about this project! Super easy, cute and inexpensive!!

I had been wanting to make some kind of garland to hang up in our house. Unfortunately, we don't have a fireplace, but I think this added the perfect touch to our Halloween/Fall decor!

While I was working on a transformation from skirt to dress DIY project {out with the machine and all} I decided this would be the easiest process to make the garland. 

Supplies needed:

  • All a Dollar bag of leaves {$1}
  • Thread
  • Super Mad Sewing Skills! You could do this by hand... :) {PS:If you do, You're my hero!!}


1) Whip out your sewing machine or if you are working on another sewing project, this will be simple and quick!
2) Just feed your leaves through
3) Make sure you adjust the length you want between them if you want it to be exact. I didn't and I think it adds more personality!!

Happy Sewing!!

What fall projects are you working on?
