Happy Halloween Eve!

Halloween is almost here!  I can't wait to see all of the little ghosts and goblins, witches and wizards on Saturday night!  

In the meantime, I have been enjoying a little bit of time in my craft room brewing up more Halloween fun.  When the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog announced that their latest challenge is "Fright Night", I knew that I had the perfect craft to share.  This is the perfect accessory for the fashionable witch to wear on her big night.  The hat itself is a simple cone shaped from scrapbook paper and attached to a circle cut from Cricut Essentials.  The flowers are from one of my very favorite cartridges- Flower Shoppe. Add some ribbon and some "rhinestone" bling and this witch is ready for a night on the town! 

While I was in my craft room I came across this card that I made when I first got my Cricut. It is made with the Halloween Hauntings Cartridge and some decorative buttons. You may remember seeing more of those buttons in my Hurricanes and Halloween post.  I purchased two or three bags of them thinking I would use them for a big project and I changed my mind.  I will be crafting with those buttons every Halloween for many years to come! 

Besides crafting, I spent some time in the kitchen (don't worry, I will catch up on grading those papers on Sunday!) working on my Halloween baking.  Did you know that the 28th was National Chocolate Day? Well, I did not until it was too late to do anything about it.  So this year's baked goods will all be chocolate.  Please come back on Saturday to see what goodies I brew up for this year's ghosts and goblins! 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Halloween Tablescape

I love polka-dots.  They make me happy. So does Halloween, beautiful fall weather and the fact that my oldest daughter is visiting.  With that in mind, I decided to enjoy a happy little Halloween dinner on the deck. It has been a long time since I posted a table scape and I want to share this simple little happy table.  

A couple of weeks ago, I grabbed up the remaining yardage of this polka dot fabric from Walmart, of all places.  I wish I had bought more when it first came out.  It is perfect for a Halloween tablecloth, quilting or a number of other projects I can think of.  

This candelabra came from Target. I had a difficult time finding Halloween taper candles, finally stumbling upon them at Michaels (for 50% off!).  Again, I should have shopped in August, there were more options available then, but I really like the orange with black stripes. (Somebody remind me next year!) I made the witch hat last year (you can see that on my Halloween Eve post here.) There was quite a breeze on…

Bee-Lated Again! (And a Free-Bee!)

You may remember that I promised to tell you about the party favors from my daughter's "Bee-lated Birthday". Not only was I late with her birthday party, but I am late with the promised post as well!  With the bee theme that we had for the party, and my new found fascination with making my own bath soap and sugar scrubs, I decided to make little bee-themed soaps as a party favor.  

I have shared with you a couple of times how easy it is to make your own "designer" soaps. For these, I got a bee soap mold, some goat's milk soap base and my new favorite Honey Almond soap scent.  I purchased all of these from Micheal's (don't forget your coupon!), but I am intrigued by some molds that I found on Amazon.  Be sure to shop around and find what makes you happy. 

They are simple to make- melt one pound of the soap base in the microwave according to package directions (30 seconds, stir: 30 seconds, stir, etc. until completely melted).  Add your favorite scent, …
