friday favorites | october 5, 2012

It's the first Friday Favorites of October, and I'm starting to see some Halloween projects sneaking in to the picks this week. There's also ::gasp:: a Christmas card in the mix! My goal this year is to have all things Christmas-y planned, bought, and done by the end of October- less time doing the Christmas Crazy means more time to spend on my Journal Your Christmas album this year, which sounds awesome to me!

There are lots of non-holiday projects in this week's roundup, too, so there should be a little something for everyone. Let's dive in!


From the top left:

  • I spotted these super cute monster cupcake toppers at Eighteen 25
  • Michelle Wooderson walks through her process of turning a sheet of label stickers into gorgeous layered embellishments.
