friday favorites (on thursday) | october 18, 2012

Yup, Friday Favorites are being posted on Thursday again to make room for more fun from Lawn Fawn's Inspiration Week tomorrow! We're partying all week over there with the new Christmas papers and stamps (and, dude, I just got a peek at the upcoming Valentine's sets- love!), but here in my little world there's lots of Halloween and Fall goodness to gaze upon before Christmas completely invades the space (although I do spy a couple of Christmas-y picks at the bottom of the collage this week), so let's get started!

 

From the top left:

  • I can't get over how fantastic the detailing on Alisa Burke's gorgeous painted pumpkins is! 
  • Tara Anderson whipped up some spookily vintage treat bags on her blog, The Pink Couch.
  • Antilight captured fall beautifully using autumn hues and just a splash of brights in this gorgeous layuot.
  • Elsie Larson shows how to make this family of ghost pinatas on her blog, A Beautiful Mess.
  • Need even more Halloween decor? How about some DIY fringe spider lanterns at The Sweetest Occasion!
  • Lacquer and Linen brings us another round of painted pumpkin goodness, this time trending more to the glam side of the holiday with lots of metallics and bling to be found.
  • If paper pumpkins are more your style, Lawn Fawn has you covered with a video showing how these adorable little guys are made.
  • Jenni Hufford proves to everyone who hasn't finished their 2011 Christmas albums (including me!) that it's never too late to start. Be sure to also check out her second album post here.
  • Christine Newman (also known as the fabulous "listgirl") is getting a head start on her Christmas crafting this year. My favorite part of her post is the recap of the holiday crafting kits (also covered here on her blog) that she gave away as gifts last year. Such a great idea!
TTFN! Back tomorrow with another Lawn Fawn layout!
