Modern Mini Halloween House - The Photos...

I love Halloween! Who doesn't? I admit it seems like a whole lot more work with little ones in the picture but a whole lot more fun too. I used to start dreaming about what I would dress up as for months before! {now we go to the store! ha} I still wanted to have something to create for Halloween this year even if it wasn't going to be homemade costumes. So I dug out my Halloween crafting box, found the perfect little chipboard house that I bought from Michaels last Halloween and came up with what I think is a pretty darn cute Modern, bright, Halloween house! Something I've had in my head for a long time.

I did take some video and photos of how I went about making it so when I find those {ha!} I'll make a how to post. For now, I'll leave you with some pretty pictures :)

I also included photos of this adorable Heidi Swapp Marquee skeleton light that I made last Halloween. I never did share the photos so here you go! I hope it gives you some inspiration that you might be looking for to get crafting! Boo!

*If there is enough interest, I would love to put together a mini christmas version and hold a little workshop where you can buy a kit and put it together, maybe sip on some cocktails and get crafty. Let me know in the comments if you would like to participate! or email me: (Calgary, AB Canada)

...and this is what happens when I'm creating these posts ;)

I'm on Society6!

I'm officially a seller through Society6! I've been struggling with wanting to create my own version of being a work at home/stay at home momma by figuring out a way to offer photography services or sell some of my art work.  Everything that I was coming up with just wasn't going to fit into my small amount of available time at the moment though. It's been 5.5 years since I left the professional world to stay at home with my babies (I'm currently employed by a 2 and 5 year old hehe). I've been feeling especially restless lately to find something that I could do from home, that is realistic and creative. Doing something I love and sharing a passion of mine were important factors, but within an attainable time frame, and work environment (being able to be at home with my girls). I stumbled upon Society6! I have browsed their site in the past, not really thinking about where the artists come from and how they come to sell their pieces through their site until it hit me last week.  Of course, anyone can sell their works of art on Society6! So it began the sleepless nights thinking about how I would make this work for me. When I was getting ready to go on my girls weekend a few weeks ago I was going through some of my photos to print and came across some of my favourites that I took in Vancouver last summer that I had kind of forget about. I printed them on matt paper to scrapbook with, I have become obsessed with them! They would make the perfect images to sell :) My first one is officially for sale here:

I can't wait to order my own canvas with the Botanical Bee print, I'm in love with it and I hope you are too!
Go get some of your Christmas Shopping done and support someone who sells on Society6 {ME!}
I'll love ya forever! Mwah!
