This Halloween, we topped off our scary books with a giant ghost made with white books and black construction paper. He might not have been terrifying, but he was definitely unstable. 😉 Continue reading Book Stacked Boo!
Who wants to do a whole mushy, romantic Valentine display? Not me! Instead, let’s feature some good ol’ fashion vampire love. Too jaded? I think not. Continue reading My Undead Valentine

I have to admit, my personal halloween decorating supply was getting … Continue reading A Scary Affair: Halloween
