Autumn-ish Tutorials That You Don't Want to Miss - Just Trust Me

I am finally getting caught up on my blog reading that I have neglected for months now. 

I know, I know . . .

And I just had to share a couple of ideas with you that just cannot stay in my bookmarks without proper recognition. I love 'em, love 'em, love 'em!

Ready? Set? Go!

We at the Jubilant household do not put much emphasis on Halloween. But we love all things Autumn and harvest-y. These fabric pumpkins from Sunshine In My Soul are so pretty. I love the shabby chic style of them. And they seem pretty easy to make. Here you can find the tutorial.

Not quite ready to make the switch to reusable bags or end up with plastic bags somehow anyway? Here is a tip for making all those icky plastic bags take up less space in your kitchen. Love this idea.  Here is the easy, peasy tutorial.  And a couple of pics to peak your interest:

I haven't tried this yet, but I plan to! It's a make your own microwave popcorn tutorial! It's quick and easy and a project you can get your kids into to help with. Besides, you never really know what all goes into the store bought stuff. This way, you know exactly what you are putting into your body, 'cuz you make it yourself! Brilliant!

I can just see dressing up these bags with a ribbon or two (depending on the holiday) and putting them into a cute movie night basket with a bunch of theater candy and a blockbuster gift card to give as a gift.  You can find the tutorial here.  I am telling you, there is nothing that can be easier.  Thank you Maize in Montana!


And there is this:  The mother of all cookies - Homemade Samoa Cookies.  I am so making these for Christmas.  If I can wait that long.   Okay, okay, we both know that I can't wait that long.  Tomorrow sounds good, doesn't it?   You can find the recipe here.  After you stop drooling, that is.


And then, last but not least are leg warmers to warm your legs, duh heart because they are so doggone cute.  And because they remind me of sixth grade where I had one pair of brown/white/tan striped leg warmers and wore them everyday.  The Affectionate One would beg me to make her three or sixteen pair if she ever sees this photo before I actually get around to making them for her.  Love 'em!  Here's the tutorial!

Whew!  I was only gonna link to three of these tutorials, but I couldn't decide which two among the five that I should leave out.  Hence all five tutorials.  Youaresoverywelcome. Amen.

Counting all (these tutorials) as joy,
