Mason Jar Ring Pumpkins

Staying in that “It’s never too early for Fall” category, tonight I’m making pumpkins using the lid rings from mason jars. I have an obsession with pumpkins, and apparently I’m not alone. According to The Atlantic, Americans in general are obsessed with this oddly orange-colored vegetable. In fact, from 2001 to 2014, pumpkin production nearly…

Pillow Cover Made from Scraps of Love

Again, from the “It’s Never Too Early for Fall” category, I’ve made a pillow cover from a fall vest that my mother used to wear. It’s been nearly six-years since my mother passed away, and nearly a year since I lost my sister, so I’m feeling rather lonely and nostalgic these days.  And you know…
