Blog Swapping with Night Owl Crafting

I am super excited to have Leslie from Night Owl Crafting here today!  
If you're not already familiar with her blog, it is fab!  
And I absolutly love the name of her blog!  Aren't we all Night Owl Crafters sometimes? :) 

Hello Ready Set Create followers! I am so excited that Aleesha is letting me take over her fabulous blog today!  I love following her blog and checking out all her cute creations!

Let me introduce myself! My name is Leslie and I am the creator of

Night Owl Crafting.

I started blogging back in 2008 and decided that my personal blog was being over taken by my crafts. So I started my craft blog to share my creations and inspirations that I receive from fellow bloggers and crafters. I host 2 link parties each week. The first one is on Tuesdays and it is called

Hoo are you Tuesdays! 


This party is where you answer a few questions I ask each week and then link up your post! This is a party to get to know each other outside the craft world! 

The other one is held every Wednesday and it is called  

This link party is where you can come and show off whatever you have been making!

I hope you will come and link up to both parties!

I am in love with SUBWAY ART right now!
Here is my fall subway art I created.

I enjoy sewing!

I recently made this reversible apron for a friend!

Here is a little handbag/ scripture tote.

I made a changing pad and it even has a tutorial!

I like to make decorations for my home!

I had so much fun making these adorable fabric pinwheels!

I am loving Washi Tape! What is it you ask? It is Japanese tape that you can decorate with! I have decorated my vases with it and covered clothespins as well!

I also LOVE vinyl!

I make these cute family name frames!

I think it turned out darling! I just set up my Etsy account and have these available in black or brown and with or without ribbon.

Today I would love to show you my latest projects!

In the spring I made lady bugs out of pavers and I knew that come fall I would love to make pumpkins.
So here is the tutorial for my pumpkin payvers.


orange and brown paint
wire, ribbon, fabric, or raffia
paint brush

Step 1~ paint your paver orange. I spray painted mine.

Step 2~ Paint the stem brown. I used paint and a paint brush to do this, because it got dark before I could cover the bottom part and spray paint the stem.

Step 3~ Grab some wire, ribbon, fabric, raffia, or what ever you like to
tie between the stem and the pumpkin.

I used green wire and curled the ends.

Now you have a cute little  pumpkin. It is really that easy.

I have so many more cute projects that you should come and check out over at Night Owl Crafting and please come join my link parties! I love meeting new HOOTS!

Thanks Aleesha so much for swapping with me today. I had a FABULOUS time!
