Fall Pinterest Challenge!

I may pin a lot of things, but I like to think that I try a lot of them out too. What's the point of pinning if you aren't going to create!? There's nothing like a Fall Pinterest Challenge via my fav blog peeps at Young House Love to make me step up my game a bit! One project? Pish-haw. How about seven!

Recently Completed Pinterest Fun:

Fixing Broken Powder Makeup
This totally works, but I couldn't get my powder super smooth. Regardless, it works all the same but just looks a tiny bit funky. NBD.

Lowfat Shepard's Pie
I think I hit the money with this recipe, which I slightly tweaked a bit by adding more veggies. A total crowd pleaser and low fat :-) We ate like Irish kings last week!

Just a few months of marination and these babies will be good to go for baking!
Homemade Vanilla
I've had my calendar marked since the beginning of this year to try this out. I ordered my vanilla beans online and picked up some cute glass containers from The Container Store. I can't wait to see how these turn out in a few months! These may or may not end up being holiday gifts.......

Peanut Butter Cookies
This was a solid peanut butter cookie recipe. Super easy to follow and memorize. A key to any great cookie recipe.

Halloween Popcorn Mix
I wanted to do something easy but festive for my work peeps and I this caught my eye. My mom makes a very similar popcorn mix for Christmas so I knew this would be a hit (adding Fritos makes it an even bigger hit FYI)!
All Hallows treats! These are too easy.....
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
Three ingredients you say? Sign me up! I made these super easy cake-like cookies to go along with my popcorn mix for treats for my work peeps. I like to spoil, what can I say?

Year-end photo book
This is still a work in progress, but I'd say I'm 90% of the way there. I decided to go with Shutterfly and have got my photos through the fall organized and arranged in their premade layout. I have a few open pages left in case I have some good photos over the holidays.

Things on my short list to tackle in the upcoming month:

Skinny Enchilada Lasagna
I like enchiladas, but I swear they never stay rolled for me, which is very annoying. This might solve that problem. Plus, I can make it on Sunday and it'll feed us for most of the week. I like that, I like that a a lot.

Homemade Caramels
Besides the usual hot buttered rum that I make every year, I'd like to take a stab at making homemade caramels for gifts. My bff from college makes them with her fam and they are to DIE for. I'm hoping these will come out just as good.

Chili Bar
I'd like to host one Sunday afternoon get together and thought this would be a fun theme to try out. It looks not very labor intensive, which I can dig.

What has inspired you lately on Pinterest? Are you in full on holiday pinning mode like me and everyone else out there?
