Halloween is not a day that I do much for anymore. When the boys were younger we would make costumes and go to friends’ homes to trick or treat, but now that they are adults that is a thing of the past. But every once in a while I come across something that catches my fancy. I think Halloween is a fun time to play with food. So here are a few things I have chosen to share with you.
Over at I Wash You Dry they are having fun with Marshmallows.
You can find these cute ghost strawberries at Candiquik.
Ghostbusters popcorn at Nerdy Recipes
Love this owl pumpkin from Modern Dame.
A fun game from Keeping it Simple.
Edible pumpkin cups from Oh Nuts. Catch her hint for cooling the candy melts so the balloons don’t explode. Trust me it is really messing when this happens.
I thought this spider would be fun for the front door for the few trick or treaters we get. I found this at The Whoot.
Last weekend my family went to see “God’s Not Dead.” It is a great movie and I highly recommend it.
Easter is almost here and Detail-Oriented Diva has some great print-outs for your Easter treats.
I often make Easter bark to have setting on the tables for Easter dinner. I always get asked for the recipe and it is so embarrassingly simple. I tell people how simple it is and they don’t believe me. Check it out at The Browy Blog.Even if my knitting skills are not the greatest I think I could make this cute carrot garland. You can find the instructions at Dukes & Duchesses.
I have been working on making a stuffed bunny for the last few days. I have been dreaming of bunnies. I think I finally have it and thought I would share a tutorial for my bunny. There is an art to writing tutorials and I am still working on my skills. So if you have any question feel free to contact me and I will try to help.

My husband deserves a wonderful Valentines gift. That being said, it is not an easy task. It needs to be personal, not too mushy, healthy and not bust the budget. No romantic get-away to the Caribbean as nice as it sounds. So I have been gathering ideas. I think I will step out of my ordinary routine and first make him breakfast. (I would do it in bed, but he is an early riser) What better way to start the day than with bacon hearts.The Paper Mama
Then pack a lunch (again something I rarely do) in a fun take-out box. This one from Tammy Mitchell Designs is designed for a miniature take-out box, but I can enlarge the idea. Take-out boxes can be found at your local craft store.
Then after a long day of work maybe something for soaking in the whirlpool tub. Creating Sisterhood has a great recipe for Cinnamon Oatmeal Milk Bath. Very easy and most of the ingredients can be found in your kitchen.Pretty sure he will like all of this, who doesn’t liked to be pampered once in a while?
