Getting ready for the Halloween Party this Friday!

Since I am having a Costume Halloween Party this year, I decided to decorate the outside a little more this year than I usually do. I got this "Grim Ripper" the other day at Lowes. His eyes light up, his lantern glows red, his head moves and he talks. He looks great at night. I wanted to make more of a dramatic entrance for the guests when they arrive. I thought I would add some branches and drape them by the entry. This way I could add some spider webs and my spider sacks.

His bride I just got in the mail the other day. I love her. I added a gray wig and my old wedding dress. She is also holding a bouquet of flowers that I spray painted black.

This is what the front flower bed looks like. I still have to make my big huge spider web. I bought a big fussy spider to attach to it. This is going to be my Saturday project if it doesn't rain.

New Halloween Decorations!

A long over due Halloween post!
I hope you all are getting ready for the big day coming up soon. Some of you might know that this is my favorite holiday. I look forwards to this all year! The last few years I have been selling my Halloween designs to all you Halloween nuts like myself. But recently I have been employed full time and it has become extremely difficult for me to find the time to craft. But with any spare time I have managed to find, I decided to make some well wanted Halloween items for my collection.
I have been selling my Halloween Haunted Houses for a few years now. I have always wanted one for myself but I really never had the extra time to make one. But I was determined this year. I have had so much fun creating it. I my idea was to have a whole bunch of Halloween characters dressed in their Halloween costumes "Trick or Treating" on Hallow Eve's Night!
Also in the pictures below you will see the garland I made for my fireplace. I have been wanting to do that for so long. Finally I have one. I bought the garland off of Christmas Traditions website. It was 9 feet with lights. It is a real nice one. I would recommend it for sure. I got the balls from Hobby Lobby in the Christmas section. The are black glittered. I just painted stripes and added the color glitter. I love the way this turned out. I was hoping to add some candy garland to it as well this year but they all sold out. Maybe next year.
I decided to not have my annual "Wild Women to Wonder over for Wine" Halloween Party this year. Instead I decided to have a couples Halloween Costume Party! I am so excited about this one! It will be my first to host. I think it should be alot of fun. I will be sure to post pictures of that one.
I promise I will try to post more in the future. It is hard to find a spare moment. Let me know if you have any good recipe's or any good Halloween ideas for a party just post me a message. I would love to hear from you.
Thanks! Kim

Lets talk a walk through memory lane! 2008

I can't believe where this year has gone already! By this time last year I was full force into creating for Halloween. I have been to busy working at my other job to craft so far this year. But I miss it so. You don't realize how much you miss something until it has been taken away. I did, however, sit down the other day and work on some new orni's for my Etsy store. They are almost completed and I hope to get this listed this weekend sometime.

Haunted House Float

Hi Guys! Time for the first Halloween piece of 2009. This is a piece that I thought would go great with the Halloween Parade I made last year. Note the picture down below.

This little witch is riding on Haunted House float through the Halloween Parade. The neat thing about this is the float lights up. I added a small battery operate lite inside. I added a skeleton, spider webs and a witch silhouette peaking through the windows. The front door says, "Enter if you Dare".

This item will be available very soon for purchase.
