Welcome to Day 29 of the 31 Days of Halloween!  Yeah, I realize I’m pretty much cheating for this one. Technically, this is not totally a Halloween post. But holy, moly, what a week I have had. On Monday, my 3-year-old Mason fell and hit his head on a metal electrical box outside. 4 1/2 hours in the ER later, he ended up with two staples in his head. The big boys don’t have school tomorrow, so their school Halloween parade was today,… Read more »

Spray paint a grapevine wreath black, glue on some plastic bugs and spiders, and you have yourself a creepy crawly Halloween wreath!

Welcome to Day 23 of the 31 Days of Halloween! I am loving today’s tutorial for a Bug & Spider Halloween Wreath.   Although, it’s so easy, it’s not even really a tutorial. It’s pretty much just a bunch of pictures to show you what I did, because I realize that none of you are idiots and this isn’t exactly a project that needs step-by-step instructions. Although if you do want step-by-step instructions, here you go: 1. Spray paint a grapevine… Read more »

A collection of 36 crazy cute Halloween projects and treats!

Welcome to Day 22 of the 31 Days of Halloween! So you might remember during last week’s Eat. Create.

I’ve never posted so many days in a row, and as much as I’m trying to plan ahead, it’s kind of killing me. So much so, in fact, that I totally forgot to do my favorites… Read more »

This DIY Skull candle holder is so easy to make, you won't believe it!

Welcome to Day 21 of the 31 Days of Halloween!  So here’s the thing about me. When I go to a store, I am pretty much constantly scanning the aisles for things that I can recreate myself at home.

Welcome to day 18 of the 31 Days of Halloween!  I’m doing a little something different for you today. Up to now, I’ve done mostly the creepy/spooky thing.

This chocolate milk fudge is smooth, creamy, and amazing. No candy thermometer needed! #31DaysofHalloween #TruMooHalloween

  Welcome to Day 15 of the 31 Days of Halloween! We’re halfway there! I loves me some fudge, y’all. Every summer, we go to Ocean City, NJ, and hit up Steel’s Fudge on the boardwalk. It’s one of the highlights of my vacation. But the funny thing is, I think I have made fudge once in my life.  I thought it was hard, and long, and involved to make fudge. Until now. Because this chocolate milk fudge is amazing, and… Read more »

Welcome to Day 14 of the 31 Days of Halloween! I’m back with another candy eyeball treat: Pretzel-Rolo Monster Eyeballs.

Make an easy and adorable jack-o-lantern pepper bowl as a serving dish for your Skinnygirl hummus or other dip!  #NowThisisSkinnyDipping #sponsored #mc #31DaysofHalloween

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Skinnygirl. I received a product sample and a promotional item to facilitate my review. #NowThisisSkinnyDipping Welcome to Day 12 of the 31 Days of Halloween! I used to never like hummus.
