Spooktacular DIY Stamped Candle Holders



Oh my, what a week I've had. 

I'm not the kind of person who deals well with drama or those who create it. After many attempts to see the brighter side I finally succumbed and had to cut some ties. It was not a pleasant experience but I feel much freer now and it all goes back to that Maya Angelou saying, "When someone shows you who they are, believe them." Indeed. 

You know my favorite way to forget about troubles? Yeah, I craft. I've been on a stamping binge and because it's been a while since my last clay project I thought it was time to mix these two mediums together again. These easy to make Halloween candle holders are simply spooktacular. Even my 17 year old son picked one up and said, incredulously I should add, "You made this?" 

Yep, they're that cool. Here's a breakdown of what you need to make your own Halloween Candle Holders!

No Occasion Super Star Pins



Make a Super Star Pin for your super star, no special occasion needed! with @PSAEssentials and @mvemother

You don't always need a special occasion to tell someone you think they're a super star. But you will need: a bit of ribbon, needle and thread, glue gun, circular paper punch, jewelry pin, cardstock, and a PSA Essentials Stamper and Super Star Peel and Stick Stamp set.

Halloween Treat Bag Tags


Stamped Halloween Treat Bag Tags made with @PSAEssentials stamps

I'm one of those who says "Halloween in stores already!?" I'm also one of those who say, "Sorry, this is the only candy the stores had left," as I had out butterscotch discs to trick-or-treaters.

If you can relate, prep for this year's little ghosts and witches by throwing together treat bags NOW! And be sure to close up with stamped Halloween Treat Bag Tags.

P.S. If the candy is in the treat bags it's less likely to be eaten before Halloween too!

Craft Lightning: Halloween Edition - Poseable Mummies


Craft Lightning time again and for this year's Halloween Edition we have poseable mummies!

Over the years I have loved being a part of Angie and Caroline's Craft Lightning Series and challenging myself to create a cool craft that can come together within 15 minutes. Last year I was on a major tin can kick when Craft Lightning time rolled around, the year before that I was painting tree branches, 2015 it's all about the Mummy!

As you can see in the picture above, Poseable Mummies aren't just easy crafting they're also perfect for a little Halloween fun. The kids and I had a blast posing Osiris (yes, our mummy has a name) around the house. I've already made a couple friends for him, Tut and Cleo.

Here's the rundown on how to make your own family of mummies to pose throughout your house this Halloween.
