craft nite success and a little bit of halloween decor!

A few nights ago, we hosted a "craft night" at our house with some friends. I so badly wanted to make an "eye" sleeping mask ever since I saw these! So my sister, my friend Nikole and I decided to make them!! My sweet little child was more than happy to model my finished mask for you all... he even pretended to be sleeping.. shhh! ;)



OK, so the last one was getting a bit dramatic, but you can see what I made and I am totally in love with it!!!! I want to make some more- they were super easy and we had them done relatively quickly! :)

I also snapped some photos of the very minimal Halloween decorating I have accomplished! I started getting really goopy, decorating with all of my Halloween decorations, banners, orange flowers, etc..... I took it ALL down. It was bugging me so badly... I am in the state of mind lately in that I NEED simple, I need easy to clean, I need NOTHING extra around me, cluttering my mind up! So the end result was a few cute things to allude to the coming spooky holiday, and I am super happy with it. :)
A glittery Halloween crown atop my flowers... along with one of my favorite photos of Andrew and myself in New York City around this time last year. Thanks to my sister to taking the photo and framing it for me for Mother's Day, I LOVE it. :)

A little peek of my fabulous zebra couch.... it was an old, crappy, mustard colored couch that my mom and I found in an antique store back in New York for $99!! I LOVE it and it has the most amazing dark wood feet on it.


BOO! I received this in one of my Halloween swaps and I love it. A little black crow is saying "hello"! And another photo that my sister gave me... Andrew and I again! See a theme here??? :) I treasure these photos!!!

Anyways, I think that my super-cute craft turned out well, along with my minimalistic Halloween decorating so far!! Maybe I will "goop up" Andrew's room with the rest??? :)

That couch caught my eye right off! I have a friend who would totally love it. The eye mask is too cute too and I love your little model! I have scaled back decorating a ton in recent years but this year I put all the Halloween in the front room since our granddaughter is rolling around the family room. October through the New Year I get very cluttered and very overdone with decorations but that's me! You should have seen it before I scaled back!! I'll be posting them in a day or two.

I love, love, love your place. (Or what I can see of it!) How do you maintain such a beautiful place with a young child?! I have a three year old and a one year old and there's no way it could ever look so good. Have you ever considered interior design as a profession? Would love to see more rooms and more decor pics!

Love your decorations. I too am all about keeping it simple. I often have that same overwhelming feeling when it comes to things surrounding me. I am all about decluttering. Hey, I love the zebra sofa. I could never commit to a pattern that bold but it looks great inyour room. Oh and love the eye masks. Too cute with the eyelashes.
Have a lovely evening.
