Halloween Graveyard Tombstones

I can’t tell you how long I sat staring at a blank computer screen before I finally got up the courage to type anything.  When I finally did start writing, nothing seemed to fit.  I felt like Tom Hanks in “You’ve Got Mail”, starting and deleting, starting and deleting.  And in the end, I’ve decided to go with his character’s strategy: the truth.

Right now I want to focus on the positive.  I woke up this morning for the first time in a long time with the smallest spark of excitement to create something, and I latched onto it like a lifeline.  It was the first time I’d felt that in almost a year, and I have to admit: it felt wonderful.

As I showed you yesterday, it’s not impossible to have a beautifully decorated home on a tight budget.  All it takes is a bit of creativity and a little elbow grease.  But sometimes it’s not the big statement pieces, but all the little details that polish off your home.

However, it’s amazing to me just how expensive these details can be!  Because of my current financial situation, as well as the fact that I am a firm believer in the DIY movement, I am here to tell you that you don’t have to pay oodles of money in order to have cute things.
