Cloning Obsession

So a few weeks ago I got this awesome new editing software called Aperture. If you have iPhoto and want an upgrade, I highly suggest it. Yesterday I discovered out how to clone things...and I think I might have become a cloning addict. It's just so fun and it adds a whole new dynamic to pictures.

Here are some of my creations! :)

New Etsy Items

Today I added a few more lovely Etsy items! :)

Pumpkin Bunting DYI

A few days ago my mother and I went to a pumpkin patch. Ever since then I've wanted to do something creative with the pumpkin I picked out for my room. After being inspired by cake bunting on Pinterest, I decided to do pumpkin bunting. Here's how I did this easy craft that makes lovely fall decor.

What you will need: a pumpkin, a long piece of yarn/string, a sheet of paper (your choice of color), and a sharpie/ letter stickers. 

1. Gather your supplies

2. Cut your paper into squares and then fold them into triangles (it's ok if they aren't the same size) 

3. Write any word you like on the paper triangles using a sharpie or letter stickers

4. Stick the tooth picks on opposite sides of the pumpkin and then tie the string to them (Make sure the string is nice and tight)

5. Put the letters on the string like the picture below

Chocolate Chai Tea Recipe

While we were on our trip in Colorado, we met some friends at an adorable tea house. We ordered chocolate chai tea and it was delicious. Due to the cold and cloudy weather, I was craving this yummy drink all day. I decided to re-create this drink and share the recipe with you all. Plus I was dying to use my new tea cup I bought in Old Colorado City.

Chocolate Chai Tea (for 2)

3 cups of milk (I used almond milk) 
1 1/2 Tablespoons of vanilla 
2 Tablespoons of sugar 
2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder
Pinch of salt 
2 chai tea bags

1) Mix all the ingredients (except tea bags) together in a pot on the stove (medium heat) 
2) Once the mixture is hot, pour into a tea pot and add the chai tea bags 
3) Let the tea bags seep for 5 minutes and then enjoy!

Trip to a Pumpkin Patch

Today I went on a lovely adventure with my mother to a pumpkin patch. We picked out our favorite pumpkins and then we got the treat of feeding goats! They were quite amusing.  Fall has begun and no words describe my excitement.
