In a Halloween mood- already!

So glad that summer's over, all the heat and rain made it one of the worst allergy seasons in years, yuck! I'm in the mood for fall (and HALLOWEEN!). I've been reading Halloween crafty blogs, digging out my craft magazines and checking out Martha Stewart's Halloween Handbook. That woman has got it down, I have to tell you. She has some great ideas in there, and many of them are pretty simple and not very costly (which the Dutch in me really likes!).

Since our house is a bit off the road and people can't see too much, I'm going to help my daughter decorate her porch and front yard, so I've been collecting some crafty items to make some things. I got two of these wooden cats at the crafts fair at Turkeyville, Michigan last weekend. I was going to cut out my own, but for $4 for two cats, I can't beat that deal. My husband drilled out the eye holes and I bought some LED lites at Menard's today.
Spooky! Now I just need my hubby to make stakes for them, and we're all set.
I dyed a couple of Onesies orange today as well as some wool, so hopefully I'll have some more projects to show you soon. I'd like to make a couple of these
cute pumpkins from Jennifer Murphy (here's her blog, she makes lots of other adorable things, too) Now are you getting in the mood for Halloween, too?

I'm glad summer if over too. It was too short and I've always loved fall...especially Halloween. The cat is perfect (no pun intended). You husband did a great job on the eyes!

My friend recommended a great scary documentary called Something Unknown (director Renée Scheltema). It reveals scientific experiments that show a connection between the mind and the world. The film shows how psychic power is a part of our inherent nature. It's a great Halloween mood setter!
