Cute Crafts for Fall!

Summer style guide

I’ve been feeling a need to slow down a bit lately. The beginning of the school year brings lots of excitement and getting used to new schedules and routines. My husband and I have also been running in different directions and we’ve had tons of things going on with our family and friends lately. I’m looking forward to a week where we can stop and catch our breath. Where the weather is clear and crisp, we can drink some hot coffee while it’s still hot, maybe go to a pumpkin patch, and I would really love to sit with my 5 year-old and do a fall craft. I’ve rounded up a couple cute ones for you- some for kids and some for us crafty adults. Scroll to the bottom for a free Fall Word Search for your kiddos too from Education.com!

Dining Room to Office Transformation

This summer, I had the privilege of designing an office for a dear friend and co-worker from when I used to teach sixth grade math! This girl was my lifeline during those first years of teaching. We shared a closet and would leave the doors to it open so we could sit at our desks and chat with each other.  In a job that I struggled with every day, she made life look easy. When we both started having babies around the same time, it just brought us even closer, and she is one of the few people I still keep in touch with since leaving that school three years ago.
