Halloween Countdown T-Minus 4 Days

This was the night of Halloween crafting. I wish I could present you with a tidy little check list of carefully planned goodies being churned out in a tidy craft room, but that's not my universe. Oh sure, we paw through the Martha Stewart Halloween issues and ooooo & ahhhhh at all of the fabulous set ups. But in our world, we wing it. Here's a little peak at what we decided to do this week to prepare for our party...

Zach wanted something to scare the ghosts away with...



And we found this fabulous idea for party favors over at Squirrel Acorns...


 

 And can anyone guess what we're doing here?



Finally some late night stamping with some Halloween prints Zach designed and I carved out...



While I was working on all of this with Zach, my sweet husband was tromping through the woods looking for our party decor... forget the party store, we're hitting the woods. Have I mentioned how much we love Halloween?

Ooh! What fabulous party favors! We'll have to try that. I love the carved stamps too. Can we have a stamp carving playdate the next time you're in town? I'm nervous to try that. :)

I love those tin can pumpkins ;) The little mummy people are adorable! I saw something a little different where you use a styrofoam ball, put a band of electrical tape, then the cheesecloth, and put googley eyes on the band of black...wallah! A mummy ball!

Great mummies! And I love the idea of Z designing the stamps and you carving them out. I think we'll have to do that. Hmmm.. would it be fun to have the kids design homemade stamps, I carve them, and then use them to make our holiday cards this year? Hmm....
