Happy Halloween Blocks

Here are some simple Halloween blocks I made this year at a church activity. You start with 2x4s cut the size you want. Paint those the color you want them. Mod podge scrapbook paper onto them. Then follow with lettering (these are vinyl). You then can finish off with some decorative tulle.

Weekly Organizer

I saw this on Pinterest and happened to have this exact frame. It is just a collage frame with scrapbook papers in each picture slot. Then you write down the things you have going on. I have permanent things written in wet erase marker and then write in other things in dry erase.

Simple Blackout Curtains

About a year and a half ago (yes, I am that slow here), I made some blackout curtains for a room my girls would be sharing. The one moving in likes to sleep in dark rooms, so I needed to darken this bright place. The one who already had this room wanted pink curtains. I got the light pink and the dark pink to line, but it still let too much light through. My 7 year old son suggested I put a black between the two fabrics. So that is just what I did! 

You can see it is just a large square large enough to cover the window. Then I use ribbons to tie it up. And over the last 1.5 years, I have gotten lazy about getting a chair so I can tie these things up each day. So I take one ribbon and tie it in the middle of the curtain (so the ribbon is horizontal) and it still let's through a lot of light for daytime. Hopefully you know what I mean by that.
