Melissa Kaylene: Easy Fall Branch Decor

Easy Fall Branch Decor

Welcome to a new week. :) I was lucky enough to have a weekend at home to catch up on some organizing that needed to be done. Still have a LONG ways to go, but I'm glad I got a little start.

I also have been working online, trying to learn more about all of this blog stuff and SEO and Adworks and Analytics, LOL it is all like a foreign language to me, but I am interested and eager to learn more. I'm so happy to say that as of right now I have over 280 combined followers....thanks for all of the love! If you have any great tips on how you have been growing your blog leave me a comment! :)

I've been absolutely loving looking at all of the cute Halloween decorations and inspiration around the web lately. I whipped together a little decoration of my own today, the best part was it didn't cost me anything. We happened to have a couple big plum tree branches that we had to cut when we extended our fence ( you can read the beginnings of that project here. ) and I created 'spooky' trees surrounding the bench we have on our front porch. Didn't turn out too all we need are some pumpkins!

Oh, and one final thought, I finally broke down and finished setting up my Twitter Account if you prefer updates via Tweets, I'll be keepin ya updated that way too!

Check back soon, I have a cute Halloween kid craft in the works.....stay tuned. :)

  9. The best way to grow your blog is from blog hops and just going around and introducing yourself to other bloggers on their blogs. The SEO stuff can be really tricky if you ever get an email from someone saying they can help you don't waste your time most of them are very sketchy!

    Great job on the spooky trees!
