Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Pumpkin Spiders…

62 degrees - 10:13 am - clear blue sky...

Yes it’s that time of year.  Halloween and Christmas are my two favorite holidays and the only two holidays that I truly decorate for.  So with Halloween only a month and a half away (yes, I am a planner), it is time to start coming up with some super cute decorating ideas, and this is one of them…

Pumpkin Spider Votives – a fun kid-friendly craft project that I thought was pretty cute and clever.

Just take a few mini pumpkins, cut holes big enough for a votive candle, cut up some black pipe cleaners to size and attach with a hot glue gun, and voilá, you have super cute Halloween pumpkin spiders.

These are so fun and the kids love them!
