Five on Friday

This week has been a whirlwind! I am battling an awful head cold while trying to stay on top of an already huge workload at school. It's not slowing down this weekend either as I am gearing up to help my alum chapter help with recruitment.
This week has made me yearn for cooler weather and relaxing nights (maybe even by the fire). Nothing seems more relaxing to me than crafting simple decorations to adorn our home. I can't wait to have a girl's night while tackling some of these cute and simple crafts. We may have to blast the air in order to fake fall in this NC heat! Here is my favorite fall craft ideas for Five on Friday. 

Pumpkin Centerpiece Decor

Fall Snack Mix

 Silver Pumpkins

Upgraded Magnetic Letters

Burlap Picture Frames

What is your favorite way to relax after a busy week?



  1. Ahhh, those silver pumpkins, to die for! And that snack mix looks really yummy, and easy to make, I think i'll have to give it a try. It has been SO hot here in CA, too...ugh I'm right there with ya for brining on the Fall weather. Happy Friday!

  2. I'm SO ready for fall too! After visiting wine country, I've been loving a glass of wine to relax after a long day! Enjoy the holiday weekend!

  3. Omg it's been over 90 degrees here this week and usually hits 100 at some point during the day. The heat index makes it feel hotter though! I was at Target yesterday and I've started seeing some Halloween stuff. I'm so excited to start decorating again! Not much to decorate for in the summer!

  4. I am loving the magnetic letters! I've been on a search to find a set for me to paint.

  5. Wow, painting alphabet magnets is such a fun way to class up a fun kids toy! I bet gold would look really pretty too, especially against those chalkboard painted fridges I've been seeing lately :)

  6. Your blog entry makes me all warm and tingly inside. Oh how I love fall. The fall snack mix looks fantastic.
