Friday Randoms & Candy Corn

I was going to share more pumpkin pictures, but my desktop computer is powered with WiFi, and our connection hasn't been the best lately. So the rest of my pumpkin goodness will have to wait for next week (do come back and visit me then, please!).

For now, here are some Friday randoms for you...

A great quote. A reminder to be kind, because it really does matter.


One of our most recent custom orders for a field hockey team!
It was a really fun order for us to fulfill.
Our dog tag keychains are one of our most popular items in the shop.


We love shipping days! Especially when we have more than one order going out. The week was a busy one, so we had more than one shipping day too. We like it when that happens. =0)

Oh, and hey! It's National Candy Corn Day today! 


How about that? Who knew? I didn't. And it's been forever since I've had candy corn!!!

What have you been up to this week? Let me know in a blog comment!

For the Love of Pumpkins {National Pumpkin Day 2015}

Of course, since there really is a "day" for just about everything you can think of, there's National Pumpkin Day. And it just happens to be today!

In honor of this fun fall day, I've rounded up some photos that I've taken this month and haven't yet posted (due to serious lack of time). Most of them are from our recent trip to a local pumpkin patch, and I have more pumpkin photos to share this week too. You may or may not have seen some of them on Instagram. Either way, I hope you come back this week to see more! 

Plus, I hope to be sharing some pumpkin recipes this week too.





This was the very first year that I tried some Pumpkin Ice Cream! Definitely worth sharing here on the blog, of course, because it was very tasty. One of my favorite things about fall season is pumpkin-flavored everything!  ;)



So tell me, what's your favorite pumpkin-flavored treat???
Let me know with a blog comment, because I'd love to know what it is!
