If the Halloween ghosts and goblins scare your little ones, here is a super easy craft they can do to help them sleep at night. Or you can use their simple craft to decorate.

All you need is a battery operated tea light, double-sided tape and a stain glass kit like these that I found at Hobby Lobby.
The kit comes with its own paints so your child can jump right into the craft.
Once your child is done set the craft aside to dry.  I'll let you know right now that the bat was too dark for this project. Make sure not to use an image that requires lots of black paint; the tea light will not be able to shine through.
Once it's dry, just take a small piece of double-sided tape and adhere the stained glass to the tea light.

That's it! Let your child feel comforted with his/her new light on his/her nightstand. This would also make a good project for a Halloween party.

I so love this and honestly I think this is the first time I've seen something like this. (I rarely get to say that!) Best friend and Maid of Honor set up this unique photo shoot with a vintage car as part of the bride's surprise bachelorette party. The ladies got all dolled up, got into pin-up character mode and had a blast. What fun! Florida's Liz Cowie Photography took the keepsake photos. A fun dinner out ended the evening. Pin this as a unique idea to commemorate any milestone occasion!

Happy Fall y'all! (It also happens to be my 13th wedding anniversary today. Crazy!) With the new season comes the excuse to re-decorate, or at least add a few fun fall accents to your home.  I love this easy project from Average But Inspired. I love that it uses natural elements–and even the rusty red-colored ribbon says fall. Find the full tutorial here.

You are going to fall in love with little Malia in this fun and colorful first birthday smash cake session. What I especially love is when photographer Simply Sweet Snapshots took her outside in her fabulous tulle dress for some photos.  This is a great idea for right now to capture the colored leaves and rustic surroundings.  Enjoy the cheerful photos!
