Get Ready For Fall

I simply love Hallmark Magazine...and this fall issue is no exception! Check out the cute and clever jack o lantern designs on the cover. With little windows and doors...they remind me of fairy houses and you do know how I love fairies!! This magazine is always chocked full of recipes, clever crafts, and simple ideas to try!

In this edition there is a great Treat Yourself section that will be perfect for Celebrate Me Days. There are also some clever ways to use old children's toys to decorate or create unique displays. There's a special section on gifts from the garden with some ideas for using dried herbs.

Boo Bash 08

Need to get moving on my Boo Bash 08 plans....well...I have lots of ideas but time to start actually getting some stuff in place.

My main project is the witch's kitchen jars....shooting for 13....a nice witchy number. And also a few crates and a Spell book...

Second project is the invitations...want these out early this year...I always say that but life seems to have other plans.

Third project is pulling together my costume...ummm....a witch of course!

Fourth project is to focus on some outdoor decor...perhaps the ring of ghosts would work nicely for the party. Lots of pumpkins and a few mums too....at least that's the plan.

Fifth project is the menu...I have several ideas...probably chili for sure...
