Ready for Halloween?

Hey all!

Welcome to my latest followers, I have finally hit a 100! Thank you all for coming by and visiting my little blog... hope to see and meet more of you around here :)

I've had a really busy work week and by the time I get home and finish all my motherly and wifey duties I am pooped! So needless to say crafting has not been my priority this week :(  So this morning while the kiddos were at school I finally had some time to make a little craft! I've also been meaning to put all of my Fall and Halloween decor up... so I did that too! I was a busy girl today, phewww!


Here is a picture our front entrance done up for Halloween... Isn't it spooky? Not really, haha! I tried!


Meet Igor our Buttler! I love Igor other than the fact he scares me when I'm least expecting it! Somewhere on his body there is a motion sensor that doesn't work too well, maybe cause he is ancient, lol! So his reaction is a bit delayed, which scares the c*ap out of me every time! He loves to do the same to all our front door visitors!



Usually I dress up as a Witch for Halloween, so I love this little broom. It gets moved outside for Halloween night!


So here is the quick little banner I made this morning... took all of 15 minutes to make! I've seen many of these on Pinterest so I had to make my own. Click here for instructions!


Simple and fanta-BOO-lous! 


 I love my pre lit pumpkins. No mess, just plug in and ready to go... have had these for years!


Here I just added the creepers to my fall decor that was already up... My daughter's going to freak when she comes home from school... she hates spiders!


For more touches of Halloween I put up some window stickies around our kitchen table... Shhhh, don't tell anyone but those stickies are at least 5 years old! I just take them down after Halloween and stick them to each other and place them in a Ziploc bag and lay them flat until next year! No need to keep buying them!


 Finally, here is my front door... Hehe, can you see Igor's silhouette in the window, creepy?
So, after the summer is over I swap out my summer flower pots with these fall arrangements I made 3 years ago! I keep them in the shed until it's time to bring them out for the Fall. All these flowers were purchased when Micheal's was having their Fall clearance sale... Got most of them for 80-90% off their regular price! Gotta love a good deal :) 


All I did was stick the flowers in dirt from my old summer pots and Viola! Fall Arrangements!!! Now all I need is some pumpkins for the front entrance and I'm done... I'll share those next time!

Hope you like some of my Fall and Halloween decoration ideas!
Thanks for stopping by... have a great weekend!
