Gearing Up

Gearing up for fall that is! I was cleaning out my scrapbook supplies and found this fall paper I bought last year.

I've been seeing this paper pendent idea on several blogs and decided to try it myself. Don't look too close because you will see that it is very homemade.
Yes, I took it down after the picture. I said I was gearing up for fall, not ready for fall!


P.S. NEWS FLASH!!! I just recently found out that Oops has a web page. It is http://www.oopsdeals.com/. However, be warned, it doesn't have their cute stuff!!! You may still find something you can't live without though.

Very cute garland. It won't be long until you can put it back up.

Oh, cute little BOO banner....I am off to the Oops site.....thanks!!!

julie said...

Your BOO banner is cute! I made one last year that says trick or treat and one that says thanksgiving! They are fun and easy to make! I was so excited to see the website however they do not have the cute stuff you come home with! You might have to be my personal shopper! Julie

Laura said...

I was just thinking today of how you can sell us Oops stuff without it being illegal, you must have been reading my mind!! I love the garland idea, and I may have to steal it! I cannot wait till fall....

How cute, I love it. I really like decorating for fall. I can't believe a lot of the stores already have their stuff out for sale.

Oh, so cute banner!

My Thrifty Victorian Home said...

I think it is adorable! I think I'll have to try one too. I've been seeing them around and they might be easy enough for a non-crafter like me to do.

Bleasings to you and yours,

Empty Nest Full Life said...

I ran right on over to the website, and you were right it doesn't have the really cute stuff you have shown us. Your fall decor is cute. I am ready for some cooler fall weather.

Shannon, You are just WAY TOO SWEET! Thx for your super sweet comment today! Tomorrow we're getting some (late) 1 year pics of Miss Priss. Fingers crossed I'll have some posted tomorrow or the next day. Stop in to 'see' the kiddos! BTW, Fall is my fav time of year to decorate for so I was thrilled to see you're already getting set! When Bryce is back to school I'll get busy on my decs and post some pics, too! xo

Oops has a website!!! I'm running over there to check it out! ;)

LINDA said...

Clever--brings all kinds of ideas to mind.
Thanks for the link--but it doesn't quite take the place of actually going to an oops store.....

Deb said...

Love the banner. I was just thinking that I need to start creating some cute stuff for Halloween. I tend to wait until it is too late to make things, so this year I am determined to start early. You are my inspiration now to start this week. Oh, and you are awesome for finding that link. Woohoo!!! Can't wait to shop online.

Lacy said...

Love the banner!:) A few weeks ago I was searching for OOPS on the web and came across their webpage......but they didnt have much cute stuff and you make it looks so awesome!!!!! I gave you an award. Stop by and pick it up and pass it on if you would like.

Lisa Ann said...

Cute banner. I will have to give that a shot.
Thanks for the Oops link. I found some things I can use.

Kathi said...

Love this! It is adorable.

Would you mind if I copied for Fall???

I'm off to check out the Oops link.

Serah said...

That garland would look perfect on my mantle! Off to Hobby Lobby to check out their fall crafting stuff..........30% off!

Marie said...

CUTE garland!! It came out great and maybe, just maybe I'll finally try it myself. :o)

Oops has a website??? I may never leave home again!

Mrs. Trixi said...

I love your banner!!! I just went to the Oops site and it is great. Thanks for sharing.
Blessings~~

Sarah said...

Love, love, love the garland! Also, I think I am hyperventilating knowing that I can order something from Oops! It does say on the bottom of the page that they are going to be adding more and more items over the next months so maybe all the cute stuff will show up!

Gretchen said...

Thanks so much for letting us know about Oops website. I can't wait to look it over!

The banner you made is great for fall. I've been picking up fall things also but it's hard when the temperature is 97 degrees outside.

Cute banner! I've seen them on various sites, too, and have wanted to make one for the upcoming holidays. Last night, I was looking at some of my old fall magazines for fall ideas.
