Spooktacular Halloween Friday – 10.03.08

3 10 2008

This month each Friday Feature will be about something wonderful I’ve found for Halloween. Enjoy!

Do something fun this year and host a Pumpkin Party! Check out DecoArt’s Pumpkin Painting Idea Center. They have over 40 adorable ideas.

Then download my Pumpkin Party Invitation and let the fun begin!

Download this FREE Pumpkin Party Invitation

Don’t forget my Halloween Owl Tags for the goodie bags:-)

 

Another FREE download you have to get this Halloween is Love Manor’s Potion Labels. These are so cool! I’m excited because I usually have to make these myself. Now I can just download them and print at home. Thanks Johnny Love! You’ve inspired me to make a jar of eyeballs, just so I can use your label:-)

A magical artist I just discovered is Vanessa at A fanciful Twist.

Vanessa has more talent in her pinky than I do in my entire body! You have to visit her web site and see her Halloween Line at Etsy! Vanessa also hosts a Mad Tea Party that will make you feel like you really are Allison in Wonderland!! I think her photos and art from her party are the most wonderful thing I have EVER seen on the internet. NO JOKE!

Join Vanessa’s Halloween Blog Party on October 18th.

Then get ready for mine on the 22nd! Lots of parting going on this month!

 

Another great site I have already told you about, but wanted to feature again is One Pretty Thing and her Halloween Roundups. You could spend hours going through all the great things she’s found. 

Look at this old doll stuffed with lights! Spooooky! I like making these mummies for kid parties too.

 

I also love this round up find… Canned Halloween Monstrosities!! Click the photo for directions. Then print Love Manor’s Potion Labels and you’re all set. I think a baby doll head or foot would be pretty creepy too! ha!

 

Little Ant Design is having a ghoulish giveaway from Tim Turner, owner of The Goulish Gallery.  One lucky reader will win a haunted masterpiece – a 16×20 changing portrait of their choice. Go here to learn more about this contest.

I love these! I just bought a couple of cheap changing portraits, but would love to win a large nice one from Tim Turner. This one really creeps me out… Meet Little Edna!

Computer Coupon

6 09 2008

My son is a total computer freak! He loves playing on the computer and would be on Play Station 2 all day if I let him. I’m also a computer freak, so this might be some what my fault… monkey see, monkey do right? For being only 5, he’s really smart and sneaky. He knows how to use keyboard short cuts to get rid of my desktop junk and get to his favorite web sites. It’s crazy what he can do on the computer! I was so excited when Apple updated their parental controls. Now my son has to login to use the computer, only able to go to sites that I allow and it shuts down after 20 minutes.

To control my little freak’s time on my Mac and Play Station, I designed a coupon. This is a fun reward to use right away or save up several for the weekend. If you don’t have a Mac or great parental controls, I hope you enjoy this alternative idea.

Download my coupons to use with your own little computer freak:
