My computer is broken! =(

So I'm using my husbands laptop, and its NOT the same.  At least I have a computer though.  I will be uploading some pics from some of my other crafts, but for the time being, I don't have my power cord, for my good camera, and my computer is literally in pieces on my kitchen table.  Sigh....  the power board broke the other night, I'm sure one of the kids stepped on it, or it was loose to begin with or something, but it happened.  Its a 25 dollar piece and it will take some time to get it fixed, so I'll just have to wait, and then Paul has to figure out how to put my computer all back together...wish us luck, lol.  
Anyway, I'm really excited about my banner that I made.  I like it, and I can't wait to show you, its up on my wall right now, because its way too big for my mantle, but it looks nice above my t.v.  I only have the decent camera, but here are some pics of my newest crafties!

 I got this idea from another blog, and for some reason, blogger won't let me link right now.  I love the crafts that she does, as well as all of the ideas!
 This is a chalkboard, basically I took a cheap picture frame from Walmart, and spray painted it with chalkboard paint.  Then I used the chalkboard paint markers that are out, but chalk also works just fine. 
 I can't remember whose blog I borrowed the idea from, but she had painted a really cute canvas of circles, and it really meant something to her, as it does to me.  Sort of a uneven, but all around connection.  I'm not a huge fan of the colors I used, I was trying to replicate hers, but at the same time make it my own, and make it something I could hang in my house.  I have lots of reds, and browns in my house, so I thought this would work, but I'm not sure how I feel about it just yet.  I'll let ya know when I figure it out.  I may just end up priming over it, and repainting something.

 I made this little pumpkin out of a toilet paper roll, fabric, paper towels, a paper bag, some thread, and some leaves I found (fake ones).  I think its cute.  I looked everywhere for some fall type fabric and was coming up with a whole lot of nothing, so I found this blue fabric with little orange and yellow leaves.  I like how it turned out.  You can try it here: under the crafts section.  They also have great coupon deals, and other things to help with the finances.
 My entryway is very cute now, it looks all fall like, lol!
 Ahhhh, yes, my bathroom.  I really LOVE my bathroom, its the only room in the house that is almost fully and completely decorated.  Talk about my little oasis.  I really really <3 it!  I have a cute little money tree in the window with candle holders on each side.  I have my little asian corkboard picture that Paul got for me when he was stationed in Korea, as well as a vase he got for me.  A wooden rose that I got from Germany.  A partylite reed holder, and another craft.  You see that silver picture frame in the right corner...yeah, I made that!Oh
 So here is my picture frame.  First off, it was a super easy project.  I started off with a very ugly gold from the 70's picture frame that I got for 2 dollars at goodwill.  I bought some sticks at the dollar store, and spray painted them black.  I spray painted the frame with primer, and then with some metallic spray paint.  I then, stapled the sticks to the back.  I got the inspiration...actually kind of copied the whole thing from here:

 Now we get to the Happy Thanksgiving banner that I can't see it very well, and that stinks, but I like it, and think its cute. 

Yes, that is House on the TV!
