DIY: Witch's Lair with Semi DIY Elements

Happy almost Halloween, everyone! I hope you're in the realm of getting ready! I sure am ready, I love this time of year. I'm an October baby, born on the 24th, so Halloween always revolved around my birthday themes growing up.

Since we moved into our home at the end of 2012, with our 2 month old on the day of entry, I've really grown in how I decorated inside and out. We have a courtyard, that is really lacking, except for the months of October through December. I kind of go all out for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I make our courtyard sort of an "outdoor room", and I also make it rustic, which is not really the decor of choice inside the home. My husband adores my love for decorating for the seasons, and let's me do it up country rustic outside! We live in Arizona after all, so a little dust and things kind of works with what's going on.

Goodbye Savvy Deets Bridal....Out with the Old, in with the New

It's with a somber heart that I am sharing I will be shutting down my wedding blog. I am 3 hits away from 1,000 followers on Facebook, thank you by the way!!, but, I've been doing this since 2010, a year after I got married, and well, I have an almost 3 year old, I do still love weddings, but my life is changing and growing. I'm not growing with my blog, I'm growing in my life of parenting, continuing to feed my relationship with my husband, my fitness goals, healthy living, and designing for my Etsy bizz Savvy Deets Designs.

I plan to turn my wedding blog into a lifestyle blog, with recipes, workouts, kiddos activities, etc. but the wedding planning is far beyond what's most important in my life right now, though it all started because I was a bride that learned hard lessons in wedding planning. I do create many pieces for brides and grooms across the planet with my Etsy shop, so I am still involved in the wedding scope, and was even featured in a couple's wedding that was featured in The Knot​! So now, a wedding vendor it is, a wedding blogger no longer.

Whatever I do, I hope you still follow, as I offer more than my opinions on gorgeous farm weddings, with chandeliers at the top of a rustic barn, with burlap aisle runners, and chalkboard labels on mason jar mugs. I adore all of those things for weddings, but more so in my home and life.

Not sure when the blog changeover will happen, but I do hope some of you followers will stay in touch.

Best Regards,
