It looks a little different than normal around here. We aren't carving pumpkins or handing out candy this year. Instead, we are going to do our first big Family Night since MCG moved in. I'll be doing our traditional finger food/junk food buffet while we play games or watch movies (still on the fence as… Continue reading Happy Halloween!
Since we decided to no longer do the garage for Halloween and last year was a huge no go because of Covid, all of my decorations sat unused last year. What I had been using in the garage doesn't translate all that well to general decorating and all the other pieces I used to put… Continue reading Reusing A Little Fun
This is the full extent of my effort for Halloween this year. Our lights will be out and we won't be opening the door to trick-or-treaters. I have never once in my life skipped Halloween. Instead, we are just going to snuggle down and do a movie night with the kids. It's going to be… Continue reading Happy Halloween!
I have a couple of new designs done for Halloween masks out on my Redbubble shop. The only difference is that I liked these designs for more than just the masks, so there all kinds of fun goodies to choose from. Like travel mugs and aprons.

I have been toying with this idea almost since I set up my Redbubble store and I saw they did masks. I mean, come on! If you have to wear a face mask, especially around Halloween, you've GOT to have fun with it!

Yesterday saw the official end to our annual haunted garage that we used to do every year for Halloween. Even though we didn't actually put the walls up last Halloween and was the beginning of the end, it didn't become official until yesterday. I took advantage of the beautifully cooler day and tore the walls… Continue reading End Of An Era
Today is insane. I had a nearly 3 hour call with my editor (notes on that to come). Now I have to deal with the aftermath of having a haunted garage for Halloween and still wanting to put the cars in after it is all over (and that is only a small portion of what… Continue reading Aftermath
I still have some final packing up to do of the decorations because we just pulled everything down and in last night, but I'm not so sad to see the back side of Halloween this year. I wasn't so into it in the first place for the first time ever, but really thought I'd gotten… Continue reading Not So Sad Goodbye
When I went to clean out the pumpkins to get them prepped for carving, I caved and decided to just carve mine as well. It is far from the cleanest one I've ever done, but I'm still pleased with the result. The pumpkin wasn't the best for the idea because it was pretty lopsided, but… Continue reading Changed My Mind
This will probably be the first year ever that I won't be carving a pumpkin for Halloween. We have always gone all out for Halloween with a full on haunted garage and everything and the pumpkins have always been a huge part of that. It is something I adore doing and usually put a crap… Continue reading Bring On The Scary
