Random thoughts on a sunny fall Saturday morning:

1. If you live in my neck of the woods this is an exciting weekend. It’s TEXAS OU Weekend. I’m joining my husband and my couch for some football today.

2. I’m going to be sharing a little more about this in the upcoming weeks, but I wanted to give the e-mail readers a sneak peek. This November I’m offering a MONTH-LONG CHRISTMAS crafters workshop. Yep. It’s a private Facebook group where we’ll craft together every single Saturday for the ENTIRE month. I have four crafts we’ll make together (you can see the crafts here) and I have the supply lists (you can order everything online–you don’t have to leave your house) posted. The crafts will also stay LIVE for the whole month in the group.

And the best part? It’s only $20 for all four crafts and the LIVE events and all the CHRISTMAS.

I’m only opening it up for a certain number of spots and you can reserve your spot for KariAnne’s Christmas Workshop here.

3. It’s Homecoming next week and Westleigh got the CUTEST Hoco proposal.

I just posted it on my Facebook page here.

I laughed so hard coffee almost came up my nose.

4. It was a great week on the blog. We talked about where to find the best cozy throws for our home and decorating the porch for fall and simple FREE ideas for decorating the entryway and how to build a paneled wall.

And now?

Let’s see all the amazing stuff I found for us this week.
