I love Autumn and all the fun that comes with it. But one of my favorite things about this season, is the opportunity to reflect on what I’m grateful for. This quote helps me remember that I have enough and I should be grateful for everything I do have.

I hope you enjoy it too.

Apple and Pear Skillet Crumble

Featured Image for Apple and Pear Skillet Crumble

Hey there!  It’s Katie from The Casual Craftlete.  Fall is in full swing (YAY) which means Thanksgiving will be here soon.  Today, I am sharing an Apple and Pear Skillet Crumble recipe.  Not everyone loves pumpkin pie so I wanted to have a non-traditional dessert this year but still reminds you of fall. This crumble is such an easy dessert to make.  It’s really hard to mess it up.  My home town just had their annual Apple Festival, so I had a big bag of Honeycrisp apples that I bought at the orchard.  For this recipe I like mixing a hard tart apple like Granny Smith with a softer and sweeter apple like the Honeycrisp.  The pears just give the crumble a great texture and some more sweetness. Let’s get started! To start, you combine apple and pear slices, freshly squeezed lemon juice, granulated sugar, all-purpose flour, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon and nutmeg.  Next, you make the amazing crumble topping [Read More...]

Bumblebee Halloween Costume

Bumblebee Costume

This post is sponsored by Michael’s. Anyone else find themselves throwing together Halloween costumes at the last minute? No. Just me then. For the past 8 years the last minute has worked well, as my boys are perfectly content to wear what’s in the costume bin, but I have a feeling our 2 year old little girl is about to change that. Well, I actually see more of changing costumes in our future than really scrambling to put something together at the last minute. With her strong opinions and love of dressing up we already go through a lot of costume changes every day! As part of our Michael’s Makers challenge for the month I put together a quick costume using a few supplies from their store. I found these cute little antenna and the candy bag in their Halloween section and picked up some yellow and black tulle for a coordinating tutu. Tutu’s are easy on, easy off making [Read More...]

Darling Zombie Apocalypse Throw Pillows

Zombie Apocalypse Pillows

I’m so super excited to be posting this project today and i’m even more excited to talk about this awesome fabric from Riley Blake!!! Yes, it’s ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE fabric created by Emily Taylor Design for Riley Blake Designs, who would have thought!!!  When I first saw this fabric when their yearly catalogue came out a handful of months ago, I knew I had to get my hands on some.  I love it so much because it’s stylish and goes with my decor and it’s actually cute!  You can see below, how fun it is.  I also love this design because it’s Halloween-ish, but doesn’t look cheesy like most Halloween fabric.  SCORE. There are a million and one pillow tutorials out there so I will spare you those details.  I just wanted to share this fabric…isn’t it cute.  I love the quotes on this one. Here’s the simple pocket on the back of the pillow.  I purchased pillows on the clearance rack at Marshalls. [Read More...]

Paint Crackle Pumpkins

ceramic-pumpkins

This post is sponsored by Elmer’s. All opinions are my own.   Have you heard about Paint Crackle?  My mom was a big tole painter back in the day and I remember her using the technique.  I thought it might be fun to break it out for these little ceramic pumpkins I’ve had sitting around. Do you know what I discovered?  You don’t need expensive creams to get a paint crackle effect.  All you need is some Elmer’s Glue All. So here’s how I achieved my fun looking crackled pumpkins. First off paint your pumpkins with a base color that you want to show through.  I choose a Espresso from Americana. And after that paint dries, paint a layer of Elmer’s Glue All over top.   You can see the difference in the pumpkin coated in Elmer’s Glue vs.  the one that has just been painted.  Once the glue has dried add your top layer of paint.  Go light on [Read More...]
