IJE Garland Exchange


A few weeks ago I participated in the IJE Garland Exchange. It was a garland exchanged/ adoption fundraiser hosted by It's Just Emmy. Not only did I get to make and receive garlands but I helped a good cause. A win win in my book! So today I thought I'd share with you all how I made my garlands. Here is what I did:

Friday Favorites


It's Friday! The weekend is almost here! Do you guys have any fun plans for the weekend? Any Halloween parties? We don't have anything going on {which means I can craft ; ) }. We aren't very big Halloween people, so we usually don't go to any Halloween parties. Plus we can never think of good costumes. But I am looking forward to handing out candy next Thursday! It's always fun seeing what the neighbor kids are dressed up as.

Happy Friday! This weekend we don't have any plans! {Well except eat dinner at my parents on Sunday, but that doesn't really count.} We've been so busy lately that I'm really looking forward to cleaning, watching football, and relaxing at home.

{Guest Post} Pumpkin Cheesecake Cookie Icebox Cake


Hey everyone, I'm excited to have Rebecca from Living Better Together as a guest blogger today! Take it away Rebecca:




Hi, I'm Rebecca from Living Better Together and I'm so excited to be guest posting for Stephanie here at Simply Dream & Create today. I'm a lifestyle blogger, blogging about anything from Film Reviews to Ultimate Chocolate Cakes. I also host the TGIF Link Party every Thursday at 8pm EST. I hope you'll stop by and visit me when you leave here!

I don't know about you, but we've had some relatively warm weather here in Maine for October. Sunshine and in the 60s and 70s almost every day, it's been beautiful. So because of this weather we're having, it seemed only natural to make a chilled dessert with the warm flavors of fall.

"FALL" Pumpkins


Happy Monday everyone! I finally decorated for fall this weekend! This year I really wanted to do neutral decor, with pops of red/orange color. First I wanted four white pumpkins with the letters "FALL" on them. It took me forever to find cheap, fake pumpkins the size I wanted, but I finally found some at Wal-Mart. It is truly my random go-to store. Once I had my pumpkins, here is what I did to make my vision come true:

Friday Favorites

Ah, it's Friday! My apologies for not having a Friday Favorites last week. : ( It was a super busy week and weekend for us. One of the highlights was a wedding. It was by far the most beautiful and well done wedding I have been to. I loved it but I know that it is way out of my budget. I did get a few ideas though. ;)

Here are my internet find favorites from this week:

Monthly Recap {September 2013}

Wowzers, October already! October means football, leaves changing, and Halloween. While I love watching football and seeing the leaves change I'm not big on Halloween. It's just not my favorite holiday. I do, however, I do love to pass out candy to the trick-or-treaters! Oh and I love to watch Hocus Pocus! So there are a few things I like about Halloween. : )

Anyways, since its an new month its recap time! If you are a new follower or have missed a post or two here is a recap of what I was up to in September:
