When Fall comes around it's always a fashion dream and nightmare for me for one very big reason: BOOTS! I want ALL the boots! There are just too many beautiful boots and booties to choose from, and without millions of dollars lying around, my feet and my outfits and my heart can feel a little sad at times. Sometimes you can find really cute, inexpensive boots at places like Walmart, and I don't mind buying those from time to time... when I can find something I like in their limited selection. So in this post I have complied a selection of boots my heart is longing for this season, and I hope you will share my infatuation for, from places that provide a bit better quality than Walmart, but won't break the bank on just one pair. Let's take a look... but I take no responsibility if you spend your entire budget on boots this month and have to live on Mr. Noodles and KD. Good luck!

photo cred: My Mom
Hey, everyone! So, if you’ve liked The Creative Glow over on facebook then you probably already read that I’m having an eye issue right now! If not, well, it appears as though I may have got myself a dreaded little stye! Booo! So that means that the Halloween costume makeup tutorial I had planned on recording yesterday, and having up this week, won’t be able to happen until this terrorizer in my eye clears up; you really shouldn’t put makeup, Halloween or otherwise, near your eye until it clears, so that’s where most of the problem lies. So, since I can’t get started on that stuff this week, I can at least prepare a couple of posts here on the blog for you all to enjoy, starting with showing this project my mom and I were working on while I was home in July – Kitchen Table Re-Finishing! Perhaps it’ll spark some creativity and motivation to re-finish something of your own! I’ll have some tips for you at the end of this post as well.

Alright, everyone! I’m back, again, with another tutorial for you all! If you’re like me, you may have nail polishes piled on top of each other in a couple of plastic bins. That made it hard when I was looking for a certain color, sometimes having to search through, or empty an entire bin to find it. This DIY Nail Polish Rack really helps get your nail polishes organized, and nicely displayed so you can quickly and easily choose a color. This project is great for people who don’t own/go near power tools. It’s very easy to make and, even though it’s made out of foam board, it is extremely sturdy!

Hi, Guys! I haven’t done an Art Series post in what seems like forever! It’s been way too long, that’s for sure, and that makes me a little sad. I always feel like I’m struggling to find time to do my art, and that’s not good because it really is one of the loves of my life!
In this Art Series post I’m sharing with you something a little different. When my friend, Carrie, began planning her wedding, she asked me if I would come up with something as an alternative guestbook for her, and, of course, I said of course! So if you go ahead and scroll/read through this post you’ll be able to see my process from beginning to end in getting their guestbook done.
