Take a peek at my new page! See up there, under my header, where it says "The Forum"? You need to go there! :)
What is The Forum?
It's a community of blog readers and writers. It's a place where we can ask questions, discuss topics, and learn from each other!
The creative Amy at A Nest for All Seasons came up with this incredible idea,
and I'm flattered to be one of the bloggers participating in this project.
So click on over to The Forum and jump in. I'd love to chat with you!

What costume could be more perfect for a couple with a new baby at Halloween?
Only Popeye, Olive Oyl, and Swee' Pea!

I updated one of my candlesticks by removing the candle and replacing it with a skeleton from the dollar store. Creepy fun! To learn more about how to embellish unfinished wood candlesticks, check out this post.

Looking for a costume that's a head turner, but don't have a lot of time or money to spend on it? You'll love this idea!
This is one of my quick "go to" costumes. I've worn it a few times and it always attracts a lot of attention. It's kind of hard not to stare at the lady with snakes on her head!
To make the head piece, you'll need:
a sturdy headband
several large rubber snakes
small rubber snakes
(I found all the items at the Dollar Tree except for the large snakes, which I found in the toy section at Dollar General.)
Place one snake on the headband and bind it on using a chenille stick. Repeat with the other snakes.
Use the chenille sticks to attach the smaller snakes directly to your hair.
To complete the costume, use a white sheet to make a toga. Sometimes I paint my face and hands green for added dramatic effect.
Have fun turning heads! Send me a picture if you decide to be Medusa this year. I'd love to see it!
