I hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween. Don't forget to brush your teeth tonight before you go to bed!

Halloween Tree!


The best part about having a Halloween tree is that in a few days, I can just switch it over. Considering stores have been selling Christmas crap since last month, I better get on it before all that is left are pink plastic ornaments.
Oh, and it is fake, so I don't have to worry about vacumming pine needles until the end of time.
 ps. Thank you Pier One for the groovy zombie ornaments!

Children's Alphabet Charts
 These are great for children's playrooms or bedrooms, and they make a great gift. I framed one for my son's playroom, and laminated another for him to read/play with. I put detailed shots of a few that I made last year for Christmas presents. They are approximately 18 x 24 unframed.

Oogily Boogily

Oogily Boogily

A twist on the traditional pumpkin.
These gourds are generally less expensive than your traditional pumpkin + craft kits that include googly eyes/pipe cleaners etc. are cheap and easy to come by at any craft shop, Target etc. Plus, no cutting involved = safe for little ones!
My son named this guy 'Oogily Boogily,' but he makes me keep him in the corner because it scares the crap out of him.
