Hey Halloween!

Can you believe we are halfway through August already? I am shocked at how fast the summer has flown! Which only means that fall is on its way and I can't wait!

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the smell of the air, the cool, mosquito-free nights and the excitement that builds with anticipation of upcoming holidays. Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays - my sister and I are both Halloween freaks - and I've gradually added to my Halloween home decor to the point that I now have a "Halloween decorations" box that sits right beside the Christmas stuff.

While checking out the Halloween goodies at Michael's yesterday (yes, it's already out) I came across Martha's (you know who I'm talking about) 2008 Halloween collection and picked up some great items. I've decided to add to my growing box of Halloween decor by putting together a themed Halloween mantle this year. I'm even contemplating a party, but still undecided on that one. Here are a couple of great finds from Martha - she's a Halloween freak like me too. These can all be found online at MarthaStewartcrafts.com.

And just because everyone needs a "drippy goo edge punch"...

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!


Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back. Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets.

Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad.

Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!!

Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night. I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?
