Lost in a Sea of Paper

I have been lost in the above, which if you remember, should look more like this beautifully organized art studio. It is sad. Yet, I did finish enough items for a craft fair, posted a bunch on Etsy, and have been helping Alan with his website (as it is "McRib Season").

I have also been prepping for Thanksgiving. Well, in prepping I mean thinking about what I need to buy and what parts of the house still need cleaned ;) I have found myself with a lovely cold/sinus infection. I could feel it coming on last week, however the last couple days have been brutal. I have made several broth soups and tonight Alan took me for Pho. This helped tremendously and I'm hoping does the trick.

I have a bunch of fun holiday posts in mind. I'm excited to start on those soon. What upcoming holiday crafts, scrapbooks, or projects will you be working on?

Late Halloween Post

This year, Halloween brought us our very own Darth Vader Dog and Yoda Dog. 

 We love dressing Dakota and Jaffery up for their Halloween walk. The adults might think we are nuts, however neighborhood kids love it.

Weekend Flair: Halloween

Do you decorate for Halloween? I typically mush Halloween into the "fall" category and let nature take care of it.

However, this year I decided to be a little extra creative. First, I bought 2 rolls of white streamers from Target and a little clean packing tape and started wrapping my front door.

 I wrapped for what seemed like hours (likely a few minutes), and found myself only 1/2 way down the door and out of streamer paper. I made a run to another Target picked up a couple more and thankfully was able to finish the job.

I traced a couple large white circles using mixing bowls and a couple small black circles using soup bowls to make the eyes, and there appeared a mummy front door! 
Last year after Halloween, I of course made my way through the clearance. I found these wonderful  window decorations for a couple dollars. 

If you happen to already own orange plastic table cloth and black paper, you might be able to make your own!

I still have a giant spider and bat with glow in the dark web to put out before the big night, however I  must say I'm pretty happy with what I have gotten put out. A huge step up from nothing. :)

How did you decorate for Halloween?
