Countdown to Candy

  It is almost October and I started putting up my Halloween decorations.  Last year we picked up this countdown on clearance and made it today.  I say we…. because my girls helped make it.  They painted the blocks and helped pick out the paper to put on the blocks.  It is simple and cute.  They will…

This is my favorite recipe for salsa.  I do not like hot salsa so I tweak it just a little by adding squash in place of some of the  peppers.  zucchini and crook neck are the best. I had my awesome hubby pre-cut everything and place it in baggies so I wouldn’t have too (cutting…

Halloween book Pillar

My book pillar stays put for every holiday and all the in-between days.  It always looks different though for every season.  A book pillar is easy to make.  Just fold every page of a book in half when you can’t sleep and counting sheep doesn’t work!  HAHA!  I finished it by glueing the front and…

  My Halloween decorating kinda goes in theme spurts.  Last year I was in the land of Oz I suppose.  My flower pot landed on the Wicked Witch.  These legs are so easy to make.  I bought some striped socks and stuffed them with batting, found some red glitter shoes at the DI and glued…

Banana Bread

  Growing up my mother made the best Banana Bread.  But she only made it at Christmas time.  I thought that was the only time you could make Banana Bread.  When I got older and realized my first Christmas not living at home…. I had to make this bread on my own.  Then I learned….…

WICKED letters

In October 2010, I made WICKED letters.  It is probably my favorite craft! I saw these wooden letters at The Wood Connection (I’m sure you can call the store and order the letters) and I just had to get them and make them….. I’m not big on Halloween or decorations for Halloween,  so it might have something…

I’m A Little WICKED Too

I’m a little WICKED too. I loved Melissa’s WICKED letters (check them out here) and had to have some of my own. I absolutely love Halloween! At most any craft wood store you can buy some pre-cut letters. That’s all we did. I chose 3 letters to put my adorable S.E.I. scrapbook paper on. I traced…
