Halloween Preparations!!

Love this time of year. Holiday after holiday! I'm running around like a chicken with its head cut off because I'm sooo behind schedule. Halloween costumes are NOT finished. I have 2 down, 3 to go. I'm pretty sure they're going to be crappy looking, but oh well, they wear them once anyway, right? Our annual kid Halloween party is on Sun. and I have barely started getting a few things done. This year, I'm doing quick and cheap. I typed them up in Word, printed them out, rolled them, and tied a ribbon. There ya go!

I found some really cute printable cupcake toppers online, but then I realized that I didn't have any colored ink. So, once again...quick and cheap. I pulled out some Jillibean Soup paper and cardstock, went to town...and voila!! Cute cupcake toppers! Yay!! Total cost: $0. Just used my stash. Yay for hoarding!!

I also made gifts for Jace and Cy's teachers. Cute felt bucket from Target, put some store bought goodies in ziplock bags, and added bag toppers and a card. I'm quite pleased with myself. =)


Well, I must go finish etsy orders and halloween stuff. I'll be pulling an all-nighter. Mars has promised to stay up and keep me company.

I tweeted about the sales but forgot to blog about them. In the SALE section in my shop, I've reduced everything to 15% off, so there are some REALLY good deals there. All those items are made and ready to ship. I'm also running a Key Fob sale, and they are all 15% off as well. Perfect time to pick up some Christmas gifts. :)

Ok, that's it. Gotta run. I'll post tomorrow with all my Halloween decor and maybe a tutorial. YAY! :)
