{Yarn Ball Halloween Wreath}

I'm linking up with Tip Junkie today for Tip Me Tuesday, and sharing my latest fall craft, my yarn ball wreath!! I can't wait to make one for every season!

For this craft you will need:
-Styrofoam balls various sizes (I used three different ones)
-A wreath
-Black ribbon
-Three different colors, and textures of yarn
-Glue gun
-Oh and a cup of ice if you tend to burn you fingers all the time with the glue gun like me!

The finished product!! 

So after you finish wrapping all your Styrofoam balls, randomly add them to your wreath, easy as that! I added a couple spiders to my wreath, you could also add some Cobb Webb's, or tiny pennant banner!

{Mini-Pumpkin Pies}


1. Pre heat oven 350 degrees F
2. Fill muffin tin with tart shells
3. Separate one egg, and place the egg white in a small bowl. Beat the egg white until slightly frothy, and brush edges of each mini pie crust with egg white. Place the remaining yolk into a bowl, and beat with remaining eggs. Mix softened cream cheese, with 1/2 a cup of white sugar, 1 cup pumpkin puree, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1/4 teaspoon of spices into the eggs to make the filling smooth. Spoon 2 tablespoons of filling into each tart shell.
4. Bake for 20 minutes, filling should be set, and shells should be golden brown.

Bon appetite!

{We're Back!}

Hey Everyone!! I am now officially Mrs.Gray {I love saying that}, and a traveller of the world. After spending 2 weeks in Europe with my new husband, my batteries have been recharged, and I can't wait to start blogging regularly, and sewing and crafting often!! It's going to be sweet, I already have some pretty cool stuff lined up for this month!! Can't wait to share, oh and maybe show off some pictures of our wedding and honeymoon!

Also I'm doing something really exciting this month...Going to Toronto to visit one of my best friends!! I can't wait to see her and all the sights and sounds of T.O.

And I just recently found out that Blissdom 2011 happens to be going down the weekend I'm flying in, so that's kind of cool. Had I known about the wonders of Blissdom earlier I would have tried to get tickets! Has anyone ever gone?? I would love to hear first hand more about the event...For now I can just live vicariously through these blogs...

I may or may not be the blond girl staring inside the Hilton Hotel windows on Saturday trying to get a glimpse of all the Blissdom action!! haha

Stop by tomorrow for my first of three Boo-tiful Halloween craft tutorials this month!
