Halloween Antics 2012

Halloween has always been a big affair in our house, because it's my son's birthday on the 31st. It's great because I'm never stuck for a theme for the party! Although the party is much less chaotic these days now he's 22 but we still carve our pumpkins, get dressed up, decorate the front of the house and get tons of sweets in to hand out to the kids. The kids love it, they always say "it's propa mint this house!"

We like to make the effort, it's a whole lot of fun. Here's our effort for this year.


Here's the big spider web on the front of the house!



Some of our snacks, hotdog mummies.
We used szechuan pepper corns for eyes.


Me and my ghost


I've been trying to find our pictures from previous years, and I found these two from 2010.
This is when Sack Boy from Little Big Planet was all over the place.


And a blog post wouldn't be the same without some crafting now would it!



Well it's been a very busy week, with two important birthdays and a works night out, now it's time to get back in the craft room and get into the Christmas spirit.

Hope you all had a great week, if you got up to anything spooky this week, tell me about it?
mwahh ahh ahh ahh

Wow - your pumpkins are amazing, and I love your mummified hotdogs!! Glorious spooky card too... I love that Poison label - is it an embossing folder? Fabulous!

I had a basket full of sweets ready for trick-or-treaters which I lined with anything I'd been making that was Halloweeny. One little boy reached in, grabbed my Blue Skulls card and said "ooh, thank you!". I'm afraid I had to grab it back off him and force fizzy fangs on him instead!
