October is Here?!

Wow..it's beginning to look alot like......... Halloween. Did you think I was going to say Christmas?!LOL(is the tune in your head now?LOL) Nope...I have to confess that really I just love Halloween. The decorations, fun colors, costumes..and well...the CANDY! Anyone who knows me knows I have one wicked sweet tooth and I have the thighs to show it!LOL But seriously..it's become I think our favorite holiday. I can't even believe I say that given I love my snowmen and putting up the trees and such. Maybe Halloween has moved to the top because it's just a fun holiday. No stress, no shopping and wrapping and baking. Well..baking..yes..we're making Halloween cupcakes. And I'll have to force one on myself. But I think it's just a fun time to decorate and enjoy! And speaking of decorate..I decided it was time to redecorate my blog! I'm missing alot of my links (Kim J. I need yours) but I'll get everything back up soon. For now though..I think it's a fun change and the blog header I made with a digi kit from the Sweet Shoppe Designs and the Ichabod's Ride digi kit. I think it turned out great! Oh and the witch is a freebie from the Shabby Princess site! Love her stuff!

Here's one of my favorite decorations that I made last year. I hung it across our mantle and got lots of compliments on it.



I used felt to back the papers and orange rick rack to connect it all together. Fun Making Memories papers, Ki papers, Karen Forster papers and my Cricut for the alphabet and spiders and such. Very fun indeed! Each year we add more decorations so this might get moved as I have something new I may hang instead of it.

I do want to mention that today I put up a post on the Bo Bunny Blog for World Card Making Day. We're sharing a card sketch and inviting everyone to join us and have a chance to win some goodies! Here's a little sneak of the card I posted...





There's all sorts of good stuff on here! Mica glitter, Perfect Pearls, ribbon that I've sewn on and more! To see the entire card and full post be sure to click the link on the top left to go to the blog! I hope to see you there!

and before I go...is there anyone who has become absolutely addicted to the new HBO True Blood Show! WOW! I'm crazy over Bill Compton! Wowee! I watched a Behind the Scenes on the show and I should've known..he's a Brit! And boy is his accent ever so fun and he's even cuter if that's possible without his white "vamp" face makup! I have even gone so far as to go check out all the Sookie Stackhouse books at the library. I can't believe I didn't know about these! And so far..I love them! Of course!

I'll be back soon to share some more Halloween goodies!
