There are two kinds of Halloween: cute Halloween and creepy Halloween. My family is partial to the creepy Halloween. We proudly display our "Bates Motel Vacancy" sign, we string up garlands made of bones, and we have several skeletons that take up residence on our porch every October. I've been working on some Halloween Decor pieces the last couple days and now they are ready for the unveiling. They appear to be quite simple, and they are, but … [Read more...] about Spooky, Spooky
School has been back in session almost two weeks and I'm quickly reminded of how crazy the Fall Season gets with all the homework and all the soccer. All. The. Soccer.

So many decisions! Now that the Holiday Catalog is out, I just can't make up my mind. Do I work on Halloween goodies? Or Christmas Goodies? Well, lucky you, because I have one of each today and both are candy bar wrappers. So a few nights ago, I decide I'm going to make up several of these to get ready for today's post. I send the kids to the store with $15 cash. I asked them to get me one regular size Hershey bar and the two notebooks they … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – Holiday Candy Bar Wrappers
Starting tomorrow, YOU can order goodies from the Holiday Mini Catalog. And believe me, there are soooo many good things in there. As a Demonstrator, I was able to place my pre-order on 8/2, which I did. Would you believe it took me all month to break out this beautiful Candy Cane Lane pack of paper?
