And with this post, I shall bid you adieu...
I've had a great time hosting the blog and hope to be back soon!
Today I would like to share a big mish mash of a little something I like to call "things I wish I had of thought of first"(or more to be more concise we can just call it inspiration... whatever blows your hair back).
These first couple I actually did think of first and I'm posting them for Rhonda because she left a comment earlier this week asking if I had any baby room ideas.
And I do!
And here they are:
The letters were vinyl wall lettering from Making Memories, but you could cut them out of patterned paper, use your Cricut or any other large lettering you have available.
Here's another project:
I used pre-made frames from My Mind's Eye (I think, it's been a while!) with chipboard behind them.
And if my memory serves me, I made this to go with:
This shows that you don't need a lot of stuff, just a few little touches on a framed photo (and a really cute baby never hurts) :
Remember those embroidery hoops that I posted the other day?
Here's a little decor hoop action for you to enjoy in a nursery.
I'm pretty sure she used fabric but you could totally use paper.
When I made mine, I just used a circle cutter that was about 1/2 an inch larger than the hoop, cut out my paper and then made little cuts all the way around so the pieces would fold back and be hidden by the outer hoop.
Now on to more Halloween magic!
I found that photo at Me and Wee
And check out Danielle's work here:
Only because this is the cutest one, hangin' with his handsome friend, Draclia.
"WHY, OH WHY didn't I pay more attention in French class?", she lamented dramatically.
No, I've never used algebra again, but I sure could have used French now.Blue Cricket Design (she even shares her list of materials)
I dare you to try to leave without checking her other posts (no, I was kidding, don't do it! definitely check out her other posts).
This project makes me want to get a big bowl of candy and just sit and admire it. (who am I kidding, just about everything makes me want to get a big bowl of candy, maybe I should qualify that statement with the words Halloween Candy)
Found at the Rusty Pickle Blog
And now that I have candy on my brain...

My favourite part of this clever banner is that the O's are multitasking as eyes!
I've always found that the O's are the overachiever's of the alphabet set.
And the bat eyebrows?
You can find it here! (and how about those houses in her banner. I know, right?!)
Another excellent use of a black frame - love how this one has no mat and she's left some of the glass clear.
Okay, I know I said this was going to be about stuff that I found inspiring, but then when I was looking for that old frankenstein layout to share with you I found a few other home decor projects on our old hard drive that I have made but don't currently have in my home for various reasons.
So, yah, I kind of lied, but what are they going to do?
Kick me out of here? (see how cocky I am on my last day blogging? think I would have tried that on Tuesday?)
So here they are:
Monogram for my scrapbook room made with some rub-ons and another Making Memories wall letter.
Dry erase board, I used BoBunny papers and 1/2 a Heidi Swapp daisy:
(*note: no boys were harmed and/or spanked in the making of this board)
Yet another cupboard door:

And this "life" quote is actually in my scrapbook room.
(Products: Autumn Leaves Rub Ons, American Crafts stickers and Making Memories wall letters)
And finally, a clock made using a blank Creative Imaginations base (but guess what? i have also used cupboard doors to make clocks. I'm sure you're shocked.)
And this concludes possibly the longest most rambling of WCS blog posts to date.
I invited you to share any home decor and/or halloween projects you have made in our flickr group and then post a link to it in the comments!
I have thoroughly enjoyed my week and I hope you have too!
