Spooky Saturdays: Vegan Noms

I've officially started putting pumpkin in everything! I've been blending pumpkin into my coffee, making pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin protein shakes...all the pumpkin! Fall is my favorite time to make seasonal recipes beyond just all the pumpkin all the time. Here's a handful of recipes I will definitely be trying over the next few weeks! Plus they're all vegan! Woot!

Not really a recipe, but still good to know!

Spooky Saturdays: Halloween Scrap Pillows

While I haven't fully gone crazy on decorated our apartment for Halloween yet, I did take advantage of some halloween scrap fabric and made some new Halloween pillows! Originally I had some fancy ideas on how I was going to do a bunch of piecing and quilting, but I've been working on so many other projects that I kind of just wanted the satisfaction of something quick and easy. So! I made these guys.

I have made a few Halloween things over the last few years, but most of my Halloween fabric stash was given to me or I would buy when it was heavily discounted and out of season. Somehow, I still have SO MUCH. I think I'll need to make some more stuff!

I took the other generic pillow covers off and threw them in the wash and then storage. I think I like the idea of making pillows out of scraps and changing them out regularly. I don't often make things for my own home so it's strange to make something and not immediately put it in the mail. I actually get to enjoy these for a while!

That's all for now! Stay Inspired. Stay Spooky.

Spooky Saturdays: Getting Inspired

Okay so I'm like RRRRRREEEEALLLLYYYYYYYY excited for Halloween. Halloween is my favorite holiday so I'm really excited every year, but last year we were still in the process of moving and unpacking during Halloween. We almost didn't even go out on Halloween night. Then Ari and I were living in different states during Thanksgiving and Christmas so this year I'm so *pumped* for the holidays to begin and to be home. I feel like now that it is September, it's officially safe to start blasting my love for all things wonderfully spooky! Spooky Saturdays is something I plan to do every Saturday from now until Halloween where I'll be showing off fun Halloween inspired stuff I've been doing.
These look so fun and simple to make! My one downside to making these on the cheap would be that I tend not to buy white fabric, but I bet I could incorporate other colors and they would still look cute (source).
I don't have nearly enough different types of Halloween fabric for a project like this but A GIRL CAN DREAM! (source)
I originally noticed this for the cute illustration, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't love a good Halloween playlist! (source)
So apparently this is a previous season's item from Pottery Barn and they no longer carry it but OMG!!!!! I love this so much and am going to try and make something similar to it (source)
This is such a cute simple idea! (source)
I really love that this could be done with almost any colors and still resemble a spiderweb. There is a tutorial in the link and I will definitely be utilizing this for some projects of my own (source)
I absolutely love this illustration!!! I can't wait to find something to put this on. Maybe I'll paint it on a plate and make it a little wall hanging for our apartment (source)

Stay spooky friends! I can't wait to share more and leave comments and links to stuff you're working on as well!
