You have heard enough about Winter recently… but we haven’t even finished celebrating the Autumn holidays yet!
In the United States, when children start going to school during the end of Summer, the back to school rush is the beginning of the Autumn festivities.
As children get into the rhythm of homework, projects, field trips, and other school activities, rumblings begin to circulate. The most common conversation these past few weeks has started with ‘What are you going to be for Halloween?’
I have asked myself that question and I have pondered it deeply. Halloween has always been fun for me, so I make sure to make every year memorable.
Last yeah I was a gypsy, the year before a 'street salesman' (wanna buy a watch?!?) and before that I tried to dress as a well known cartoon princess.
My point is that I didn't have to spend money on my costumes, but they were still super fun and imaginative (I got the most laughs with my salesman outfit.)
This year I will try my best to depict the cute and always inspiring red yarn haired cowgirl movie character. I see a lot of my personality in her, so I think it will be a lot of fun this year!
Have a great time out there and as always be careful, be cautious, and never go alone.
I love playing board games. Recently, I have found some of the tried and true classics with a twist!
Most of these games I have played more than once. They are fun, fast paced, and exciting! I really like the scrabble tiles. You can stick them on your fridge, but aren't limited to just playing the game! You can use them for other things too!
It’s time to get all your shiny, gluey, crinkly, colorful craft stuff out!
Autumn is a great time to start crafting unique decorations, small mementos to send out to family during the Holiday Season, and fun seasonal activities do do with your kids!
As the days get cooler, I get this overwhelming feeling of nostalgia. I’m sure others feel the same thing I do. It’s craft season!! I love making things starting in the autumn months so I can have them ready to send off to my family and friends just in time for Thanksgiving and the Christmas season.
One year I made special Thanksgiving and Christmas greeting cards for my family. They loved how unique the cards were! Definitely not like the store bought cards!
