Rainy days + Mondays

I hate the combo of rain and Monday! It makes the beginning of the week a little extra "blah". Definitely crossing my fingers for some sunshine!
This weekend I:
Knocked out 3 pillows for our living room
I am OBSESSED! I am making 2 more today. We have a sectional, so I like to fill it with pillows. I am also going to be refinishing a rocking chair from my Mom and I think I might make a pillow to place on that. It is all wood, and I think the little cushion would be nice.
Hit the mother load on fabric! 
I picked up a few of these before on sale, this time they were final markdown so I was geeking out!

I skipped down to Jo-Ann's after I left Hobby Lobby, and I found these upholstery fabric samples 50%, so $1 each! They are great for the makeup bags I do, the fabric is perfect for it.

The next thing I did, might cause you to question my sanity.
I started planning Thanksgiving dinner.
Nuts, I know!
I started browsing for invites to order and nothing has really jumped out at me yet.

Then I went to Cardstore to see what they had to offer and found some SUPER cute options! (and I may have gotten Thanksgiving sidetracked and spent 30 minutes looking at baby shower invite options for my sister!)

I've also just discovered the Cardstore blog, Cardstyle! They have just placed a guide to the perfect "Christmas In July" party--you must check it out! 

Source--check it out!

They have some amazing tips--and I may just have to make that mulled ice wine ASAP!

Have a GREAT week!!!

    Ohhh Thanksgiving! I'm pretty bad and always skip over it. But just hearing Thanksgiving makes me think of Christmas :) YESSSSS! I am dying to decorate. Although I'm starting to gather ideas for Halloween, too. So want to throw a Halloween Party one year.


Thanks for stopping by, leave me some love!
