I love this quick DIY project! 

Tape of mason jar with painters tape and spray on adhesive on the bottom of the jar. Apply glitter... Copper glitter is fun for Autumn! Fill with candy corn and give it to your favorite friend, neighbor or kiddo's teacher! Happy Autumn!


October.... Finally, you're here! 

This month is filled with everything good and somehow it magically unlocks all my childhood memories of homemade Halloween costumes, making smore's over a backyard firepit, decorating pumpkins and making delicious autumn treats! So welcome October... Thank you for bringing us Autumn!

One of my favorite treats is making caramel apples! You can use a kit or dip your own... adding halloween sprinkles is a fun twist. Place sprinkles in a bowl and while caramel is still warm (before it hardens) roll apple in the bowl of sprinkles! Happy Autumn!


Tailgating Made Easy!

Love these crates... I'm not sure why I'm drawn to crates... They make me feel rustic snd homey... I like taking events and making them feel homey so I guess that's why crates fit in to most everything I do. Most craft superstores are running big sales this fall. Consider using your coupon to purchase a fancy won't be sorry. You can use them for anything and everything! This one is (obviously) being used to haul water to our tailgate. Add a little ribbon (with your team's colors, of course) and you are good to go!


DIY Tailgating Essentials!

I love football season... everything about it... the weather, the team spirit and the food!! Plus, DIY is perfect for tailgating! Love this huge bucket I picked up at Walmart (under $10)! Added a collegiate decal (it's actually a car window decal so it can come off too) I plugged in my hot glue gun and slapped on some ribbon and ta da....ready to go and fill it with whatever... This one is big enough to be a drink cooler... So a little ice, soft drinks and water and we are ready to roll!


September's Family Fun Guide for Fall

1. Tailgating - A Hoosier favorite pastime! Nothing celebrates Fall like a great tailgate! Cheer on The Colts or your favorite high school or collegiate team! Here are easy tips for throwing a great Tailgate this Fall!

2. Apple Orchard & Apple Picking- One of our favorite family activities in September is heading out to your local apple orchard to pick apples, get fresh apple cider and more! Most orchards are family owned and operated and have a family weekend activity guide that runs September through October. Many have pony rides corn mazes and a country stores. Check out Tuttle's Orchard in Greenfield, Spencer Farms in Noblesville and Conner Prairie's Apple Store is always a family fave!

3. Visit A State Park/ Horseback Riding & Zipling - There is nothing like Autumn in Indiana! Indiana has 25 official state parks! What better way to enjoy Fall then by zipling through a canopy of trees or taking a trail ride  on horseback! Brown County State Park is great for both of these activities or check out your nearest state park for their list of Fall activities!
