Happy Halloween!

Hope you all had a great weekend!
We sure did!

Today, I'm putting together some orders & then 
I'm off to see my sweet little nephew in his costume!

Have a very spooky Happy Halloween!



Hope everyone had a great week!
Furthermore, I hope everyone has something fun planned for the weekend!
I am in love with Halloween.
In case you couldn't tell, I have a fondness for a themed event.
Halloween is like a universal themed party - that everyone participates in.
I just wrapped up a craft sesh with one of my favorites & her costumes is AH-MAZE.
Can't wait to show you pics!

In the mean time, I know you've been missing some faves :)

If anyone has an amazonian sized tree they're looking to cut down,
please contact me before removing it entirely...
thank you!

Potentially the best Before&After ever.

Sweetapolita is too cute.

Todd, I found our next DIY...

and last, but never least, a boy & his stick.

Now, all you sassy pants, go forth and celebrate.
If you're not going to dress up, at least pass out some candy.
here's a small textile based hint on my costume.

Any guesses?
See you Monday :)



yep, that about sums it up :)


The Itsy Bitsy Spider...

...Went to a seriously stylin' party.
Did you see this fabulous party styled by Elizabeth of Bump Smitten for HWTM?

Sweet, Spooky & totally apropos.
Take a looksie:

I mean.
Adorable, right?
I can't even.


Tricks & Treats!

...but mostly treats :)

I've got a few tricks up my sleeves for the treats I'll be making this weekend,
but these contenders definitely made it hard to pick a favorite

Weeelllll, maybe I should test a few before I make any final decisions....
Do you have any treats on the agenda this weekend?

Currently Being Inspired By...

(remember these?)
Orange & Black
So better late than never
(as inspiration posts are usually Monday's jam)
but I thought it only fitting to showcase some fabulous shots
of this classic creepy combo.

Without further ado...

Are you getting all geared up for Halloween?

oh, hi.

Hi there you faithful readers of mine!
So I know that bloggers all throughout the land have
more time consuming jobs, and probably a swarm of children to boot,
but I've just been SWAMPED.

I promise to give you a (rest of the) week full of posts,
and just to begin, heres what I've been up to.

I have to say, one of the best things about working from home is 
being able to be around when this little nugget drops by 
(even is he's more interested in the "bing" than his auntie Mae-Mae)

Todd and I had a great time catching up with family & friends

We spent our Sunday afternoon visiting our friends' zoo house.

there are some things you just don't get to do in the city...

Sunday afternoon was spent eating chili & carving pumpkins
(with the assistance of some seriously cute helpers)

and then, as any perfectly rounded weekend would go, 
it was sandwiched with a little walk around the block with Grady...

...and Grandma :)

What have you been up to?
Did you miss me?
