My Hand at Photography “Girls just want to have fun”     

My friend has got the most adorable little girls, I got to play with my Camera at her house last month, while I am not a professional photographer we still had a blast. These Girls love each other so much and they really know how to have some fun.

Last year I got 2 of these pumpkins for .30 after Halloween with plans to do something great, So this year I bought 1 large pumpkin to add to the collection. 1. Print a picture of a Turkey silhouette off a Google search and cut that out for your stencil. 2. I painted the argyle free hand, I was scared but it turned out pretty cool. I used spray glue to stick it on our painted pumpkins. 3. The large pumpkin I painted Brown, I then used spray glue and sprinkled on some Martha Stewart Glitter, It did not take much I was surprised,  I also bought this candlestick for .25 at goodwill, I mod podged tissue paper on it and added some metallic paint to finish it off. 
006 I think they turned out really amazing!

Of course no project is complete without the help of a 3 year old.

Fall Wreath

For my wreath I used a dollar store wreath, covered it in burlap, and then glued tons of burlap and fabric circles and squares. There is also some tulle in there for good measure. For the accents I made some rosettes and added some random buttons- along with the welcome letters.

New to Blueberry Pearls

Hi, I'm Elizabeth and I am so excited (and flattered) that Amy has asked me to contribute to her creative blog. I love to sew, create, and do all things crafty.

Here's my little lady. She's my only girl and is my main creative outlet for sewing. Which means she has way too many clothes- I just can't help it. Here is my latest creation:
The prints are Amy Butler. I used a McCalls pattern for the top (tweaked a little) and just kind of winged it for the pants. I used some outgrown pants and added lots of ruffles.
