Classic DIY Black+White Pumpkins

It’s that time of year again, one of my favorite seasons….Fall :) I love layering scarves and boots and sweaters, and I especially love the family traditions that come along with Fall. The pumpkin patch hunting, corn mazes, sweet treats and family gatherings. Last year I set up a little DIY pumpkin painting day with my oldest son. We picked classic black + white. I spray painted each pumpkin white and then we used black poster paint to brush on the designs. My little guy painted a spiderweb, and the other pumpkins I hand painted. I did a beetle, a skull, web + spiders, and a fun little swirly tree bark inspired design. Looking forward to planning another little pumpkin painting party again this year :)

DIY Bow Ties for Easter!

I came across an amazing tutorial on how to easily make a bow tie on prudentbaby.com. My close friend Amy and I became obsessed with making them for an Easter photoshoot with my boys, so we immediately drove to Michael Levine in downtown LA to find as much cute fabric as we could. Then we dragged my ancient sewing machine from the back of my garage, buried under Christmas decorations and bins of baby clothes, and made these little guys. I’m in love! I think the plaid one is my absolute favorite :)
