More Halloween Decorating

It's been crazy around here, but I still managed to get some additional Halloween decorating completed. I have to keep up with my neighbors Mary Beth and Angela that are trying to out-do me this year.

Here's an easy idea anyone can do - and you'd be amazed at how much of an effect it has. So simple, cheap and easy! Last year, I picked up an orange light bulb at Party City and changed it out with the regular bulb on my front porch. It gives a wonderful glow at night and when Halloween is over, I just pop the regular bulb back in! Easy, peasy!

 And here's a little look at our family of pumpkins. Walker picked them out this year - with the exception of the white one - I always add that one to the pile. Then there's the fake one - can you pick it out? We emptied the inside of one of them because Walker wanted me to fry some pumpkin seeds, but I haven't carved anything on the front yet. I can't commit to a design. I decided to name the dude hanging out on the pumpkins Mr. Bones. When I say hey to him every time I drive up to the house, Walker looks at me kinda funny.

Then, my table decorations. I sized one of my free Halloween prints down and placed in a frame from the Dollar Store, then took some chip art stickers from Walmart and scrapbook paper, googly eyes and another Dollar Store frame for the second piece. I picked up the Halloween "tree" from Target two years ago and the jar was inspired by a fun idea I saw online with a jar of bats. I decide to put my own spin on this idea and created "The Boo Crew". Walker loves having his own little jar of ghosts.

So, I hope that gives you some spooky inspiration for Halloween!!! Here's to tons of fun, freeks and frightening follies for us all!

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!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!
