guest post for the queen bee market

here is a guest post i did for the queen bee market's blog. i thought i'd share it with my readers:

hey party people!

i had a bit of a hard time coming up with a suitable "guest post" for this awesome blog. after a little deliberation and some procrastination i decided that i would share with you my "to-do list" for this wonderful month.

here we go.

#1 crafty tutorials i would like to try:

these pumpkins are high on the list. i just need to find the right fabrics.

i am for sure doing these cloth napkins for our thanksgiving table.
i would like to try my hand at a felt leaf garland like the one on elsie's blog.

maybe i'll even make a wreath like this one.

#2 san diego events

week 1- i plan to take my little girl to the adventures of the gingerbread man at the marie hitchcock puppet theater in balboa park. they always put on a good show.

week 2- i will kick off my holiday shopping at the queen bee market.
week 3- i think we'll hit up the del mar cliffs. we like to walk along the coast in del mar, the cliffs are beautiful and so is the view... one of the perks of living by the ocean. this is on the list this month, because we haven't gotten there in a while and i would like to go back.

week 4- holiday arts festival at the del mar fair grounds.

#3 recipes

these potted pies look like they would be so so fun. 

these smashed potatoes look so yummy.

i am going to make my first turkey, yikes! i think i will try this recipe from relish

#4 projects to finish

i have a list of things i need to finish before december... an advent calendar, my tree skirt, but most importantly my daughter's quilt that i've been making. i am loving the way it's taking shape.

#5  lastly we need to take pictures for our family christmas card.

i think we may try to do a photo booth photo strip on a card and post them in the same skinny envelopes we used for our wedding announcements. yes, i still have bunches of envelopes from our invites, because i never through anything out. it would be quite frugal if i could use what i already have. it seams like every card i find with a photo booth strip is a wedding announcement. we will have fun turning the idea into a christmas card.
these wedding invites are found in readymade (the love issue)

i love these save the dates!

this sweet wedding invite is right along the lines of what i've been thinking. found on black eiffel

thanks for visiting and i hope to see you at the market!
