Redo Old Decorations

I've been wanting to give this old talking head a "face-lift" for a little while.  I was inspired by the decorated skulls of Dia De Los Muertos.

I looked through my Cricut cartridges and found some interesting looking leaves in my Wall Decore and More cartridge.  I made my design by flipping and mirroring the images.  The "beware" text came from a trial Halloween cartridge available in Cricut Craftroom.

From start to finish, this project took about and hour and since I had all the supplies, it was free!

August Stitch Fix

One of my favorite new things to do before a trip is to schedule my Stitch Fix!  I love having awesome new outfits to wear while I'm exploring someplace new.  It's especially helpful if I'm going somewhere that has a different climate than Michigan. 
My husband and I planned a trip for Washington DC in the beginning of August and I knew it would be very hot and humid with a lot of walking and public transportation.  Also, I knew we'd be visiting museums, monuments, government buildings, and fancy restaurants.  So, I needed clothes that would keep me cool and also be cute and classy for our planned activities.
My Stitch Fix stylist came through!  My fix included two dresses, a cross body bag, an adorable polka dot skirt and green blouse.
Here I am with three of my pieces at the Navy Memorial in Washington DC.  I can't wait for my next fix.  You can schedule yours here.
