Okay, so I am much more a harvest decore kind of girl than a Halloween diva, but I do like a few touches here and there, with more of an Edgar Allen Poe sort of feel than a Beetlejuice or Stephen King-esque slant to my touches.
(For me, the only exception for more color this time of year is on my little party crows, or if I'm making something for the grand-kiddos.)
I've been gettin' my nearly-nightly craft on the past coupe of weeks, and every Halloween paper craft I've created has inspired another to follow.
I love it when that happens.
Banners of all sizes, and party crows from here to the other side of the bridge to Portland, and most recently, petite gift boxes, perfectly sized to hold candy corn, or a fabulous cookie, or a gift card, or bracelet, or...well any little treat of favor you can think of.
These ghoulishly sweet kraft paper boxes made me think of a fun Halloween themed dinner or cocktail party, or maybe a luncheon with my gal-pals from my big girl job, and that started me thinking about table scapes. (Yep, it's that same old if-you-give-a-moose-a-muffin thing I do...) Table scapes made me think about designing coordinating bingo cards to tuck into nooks and crannies, or water goblets on the table.
Oh, can you just see that?
Yeah, kinda sorta something like that.
I'll have all of this in my booth tomorrow, and in my etsy shop as well, by Friday.
Who knew Halloween could be so inspirational?
