We made it back from our Florida trip just in time to set up for the Urban Craft Uprising winter show! We did the summer show this year, so we assumed that we knew what to expect. But instead... holy 10,000 people, Batman!

Our expectations were far exceeded - the amount of people in attendance was astounding, and we were busy all day, both days. We really had a great weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who came out to see us! For those of you who couldn't make it, here are some photos of our booth (taken by our stellar intern, Jenny).

Fall-o-up

A few weeks ago, I blogged about our "first day of fall" party, and I wanted to follow up with some info about how our baking & crafts went!

I wanted a fall wreath for our front door, since this is our first season with an actual (non-apartment) front door. But I wanted it to be somewhat year-round friendly - less pressure for other new wreaths! Although, after making this one, I'm ready to make more. This one took me just the afternoon to make, and it was so fun! I originally saw this type of wreath here, and used this tutorial to make the flowers. I liked this yellow (been digging it lately - just made a scarf in this color too),  but wanted to break it up with some cream. I made several different types of flowers, and switched up the size as well. I'm really happy with how it came out, and it makes our front door so cozy!

We also made the pumpkin scones from my Fall Pinterest board, and they were DELICIOUS. I've been dreaming about them ever since. You can find the recipe here. Fall success!
