We painted our girls feet with white craft paint and placed them on a black piece of card stock. You can use googly eyes or use marker to make the ghost face.

Hope you all have a frightfully good day x

A Floral Thanksgiving Place Setting

Friday, October 28th, 2016

In Utah we have had the most beautiful October, and we are eating up every second of it. Crispy air, crunchy leaves and steamy herbal teas, we can’t get enough!

We are also loving all the heavy saturated colors that are everywhere this time of year…mustard, wine red and deep greens. We saw some grocery store floral bouquet for $5 and thought these would make incredible mini bouquet place settings for Thanksgiving…

One average size bunch can easily make 4-6 mini bouquets..averaging around $1 per place setting.

Such a pretty treat for all your guests, don’t you think?

Are you a list maker?
If so, we have the perfect holler dollar for you!

We found these ‘moleskin-like’ basic little notebooks at the dollar tree and are loving them to make our daily and weekly lists.

We keep on trying to convert to our phones for lists, but there’s nothing like crossing off a physical to-do list. Please tell us we’re not the only ones that still do this?!

A Costco Cardi You’ve Gotta Go Get!

You know you’re a mom when you get excited about a fashion find at Costco. Oh man!

We are used to seeing these cute ‘BNCI’ brand cardigans at Nordstrom Rack, but were so excited to see this one at Costco for a fraction of the price, just $15!!!

It comes in a few different colors, but we love this grey for an every day look. The fit is flattering and we love that it has pockets perfect for keys and your cell phone. It’s a perfect lightweight cardi for the fall, and will be great in winter with a heavy scarf.

Time to treat yo’ self, add it to your grocery list ladies!

Custom House Portraits: Now Taking Christmas Orders!!!

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

A perfect gift is pretty hard to come by…

this is pretty close!

I’ve been painting these one-of-a-kind custom house portraits for the past several years, mostly at Christmas. I can tell you it’s an absolute joy! I love sitting down at my desk while the girls nap, put on some Christmas music and whip out the paint brushes.

It’s a sweet feeling to be behind such a personalized gift, and I’ve truly loved hearing you guys share your stories of your homes and the reactions of those you’ve gifted to. In a small way, I feel like I got to share some of the excitement of Christmas morning!

I’m not quite sure how long, or how many orders I’ll be taking this year, but if you are interested please pop me an email at sarahfaubus (at) gmail (dot) com for more information.

Most houses fit into my $65 rate, framed.

Jumping into Christmas shopping this early is a major stress relief for me, especially if it’s that person who’s tricky to buy for. I’ll do the hard work for you! Pop me an email!!!
