friday creative

i've been super excited to decorate for halloween and i think i've waited a respectable amount of time, after all it is october 1st this weekend!

so remember this little tree branch i started with a few weeks ago?


well i covered it in lovely faux webbing & a few glittered black spiders, and now i'm tucking some of my favorite fall & halloween photos in the webbing. so fun!
happy friday!

the beginning...

...of a few friday creatives starts now with this little tree branch! while it's a little bit early for a lot of us to go crazy with black & orange and pumpkins, it's definitely time to add a little touch of fall to our decor. i found this pretty and slightly spooky branch in the yard, stripped the leaves and trimmed it to fit in a beautiful white pitcher, held up with some floral foam. now it's ready for some fall photo projects and some spooky halloween ones too! stay tuned!

happy friday!

friday crave

so i'm starting to gather all my supplies to decorate for fall and yes, halloween! i know it's early but i love it so much that i just can't help myself! anyways, my point is that as i have been getting out my decorations & planning my displays i have also been shopping a bit and i am loving this little cutie...wouldn't it be wonderful for displaying a group of pinecones with a photo tucked in? or a pile of glittered bones and your favorite halloween snapshot? you love it too don't you?! you can find it at farmhousewares.com.

happy friday!

hello again

hello everyone,

i know it's been a while and i hope you've had a good summer. honestly, i'm so pleased to say goodbye to summer and hello to fall. my summer has been hard and i know i don't usually share too much about my personal life on this blog so i'll just say i've been more than a bit under the weather, dealing with some illness and some chronic pain. and then we also lost my grandmother in august.

and here's where i get on my photographer's soap box, after my grandmother's passing there was one photo i wanted to find. i knew i didn't have the negative and i had been meaning to archive it properly and frame it for a long time but...i left it in a box somewhere. well i thought i left in a box somewhere, unfortunately i cannot find it anywhere and it breaks my heart a little bit. so here's my soap box bit, archive your important photos. make digitally copies, backup your digital copies, frame a copy and put it someplace it can make you happy everyday, take more photos, have your photos taken and tell the people you love that you love them EVERYDAY.

ok, i've said my peace.

anyway, i have a feeling fall is going to be lovely. much better than summer, so stay tuned.

xo, carly
