I have a great idea...

Hello, hello, hello!
I hope this post finds you all doing well.
I am super excited for this week... well especially for the end of this week, because I am getting together with some friends for another craft night! We had one of these last month and it was just so much fun we had to do it again. It is just so much fun, and actually quite relaxing. It is nice getting to be creative just for fun rather than out of necessity! 
Sooooo, I have put together a few of my favorite crafts for fall/winter that maybe YOU would like to try out!

First of all, boot socks!
Boot socks are the epitome of fall and winter to me. Well, layers in general, but boot socks are just the extra touch of layering cuteness. On this particular tutorial it shares all the ways you can get creative with your socks. Buttons, lace, colors, the list goes on and on of how you can make your boot socks unlike anyone else's.

Next on the list, Elbow patches.

Okay, talk about cute! This right here is an awesome tutorial of needle felting. What is that? Yea, I had no idea either until this tutorial. This would be the perfect way to spruce up your common sweaters this fall and make them into something special. Let's be honest, who doesn't go stock up on Old Navy sweaters when they have their sale? That's what I thought. Rather than matching people everywhere you go (that gets old!) add some elbow patches to yours to take your look to the next level. And why stop at just the elbow patches? You can transfer this same idea in many different forms to change up your sweaters!

And last of the fall creations, Flannel infinity scarf.

Here is something else that many, if not most, of us have, flannel pajama pants (If you don't your hubby probably does). Scarves are my go to accessory in the fall and winter. If I wanna add some color or layers to an outfit, I grab a scarf. If I don't feel like wearing a necklace, I grab a scarf. If I wanna be warm and cozy what do I do? You got it, grab a scarf. This is also perfect for our budgets. I know I will probably get another pair of flannel pants this Christmas, so why not recycle my old ones into a cute scarf?

Well, there you have it! Those are my top three projects that I have. I can't wait to get these all done! Hmmm, maybe take a day off? Okay, no! haha so tempting though.

 What projects are you working on?
