The Cure for the Common Monday #61

Welcome! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a fun Halloween. Despite my obsessive need to make everything myself, I bought my kids' costumes this year very last minute at Old Navy for less than $14. I wasn't sure if they would wear anything I would make, and I wasn't even sure they would wear these costumes. However they wore them and loved them!

This is the second time Benjamin has been a tiger. The first time he was just a few months old.  

Lyla is a fish. She wore the hood for about 2 pictures, but LOVED the costume. She wants to wear her "Fiiiiiish" every day. 

This picture cracks me up. Grant was behind the scenes trying to help me get a good picture. He held up some candy to try to get them to smile. Instead, they look like two hungry lions who just spotted a gazelle. 

Lyla got a little bit of shiny blue eye shadow on her cheeks to match her fish scales.

This week we listed some new jewelry items at our Etsy shop, White Finn Designs.

Also, this week, I was part of The Mom Connection. Check out this post where a handful of us moms share our tips on how to get your kids to clean up. We would also love any tips or advice you have to share with us.

2. DIY Team Spirit Bag from Crafty Scrappy Happy

3. Tin Can Succulent Planters from Eliza K

4. Fingerprint Tree Wedding Guest Book from Chicken Scratch NY
