Halloween Crafty Craft

This was SUCH a quick and easy project. I wanted to make some simple party favors for our upcoming Halloween party, so I thought what would be easier than little treat bags and party hats!  I decorated some clothespins with vintage images and Halloween stickers. For the hats, I simply covered some pre-made  party hats and then decorated them with stickers, glitter chipboard and crepe paper. Sooooo easy.

The beautiful pattern paper, chipboard, and vintage Halloween stickers are from Melissa Frances.

Happy October!!! Weeeeeeee!

I'm soooo in the Halloween spirit. It was an overcast, chilly day today. PERFECT for staying inside and baking pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. My sister sent me this little cartoon, reminding me of how much it TERRIFIED me as a child. Now I absolutely love it. I think I've watched it about ten times since she's sent it to me.

Pretty song.

Love these..

Anyone who knows me, knows I'm a HUGE fan of the macabre. From Victorian post-mortem photography  (don't worry, Kellen, I won't post any of those)  to creepy, eerie movies. With All Hallow's Eve just around the corner (well, kinda) I thought I'd post some art work of one of my favorite artists, Elizabeth Mcgrath. She is known for having a "An eye for the strange beauty in the grotesqueries of life." Have a look-see.

And here she is, the beautiful Elizabeth Mcgrath.

Ahh Fall, you're my favorite

I absolutely adore autumn! With it's brightly colored trees, fresh caramel apples, crisp air, warm cider and the aroma of burning leaves.  To celebrate, I made this little party hat which was featured on the Melissa Frances Blog.
