Time to grab up those HALLOWEEN supplies!

I knowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!  It feels WAY too early to be thinking about HALLOWEEN.  BUT, I have discovered over the last couple of years that stores just aren’t stocking as MUCH seasonal product as they used too.  ESPECIALLY seasonal CRAFT SUPPLIES!  

Last year I waited and looked and waited and looked and waited and ASKED is they were coming in and waited some  more for the small glittered skulls at Dollar Tree; like I used a few years ago to make these Halloween Queens:

THEY NEVER DID GET ANY IN AT DT LAST YEAR!!!  I was sooooooooooooooo bummed.  I had passed up some paper mache ones about the same size at Michael’s; still HOPING for the already glittered ones.  LESSON LEARNED!  I’ve already bought a couple of the mache ones ‘just in case’ that is ALL I can find.


Earlier this week I just happened to be driving by HOME GOODS and decided to take a quick peek.  ALL their fall and Halloween is out.  MASSIVE QUANTITIES of it.  And look what I found.  And just slightly more than the DT price!

This tube of NINE of them was $9.99.  I wasn’t too keen on the COLORS they had to offer.  WISH I could have found ALL black ones.  But they were all mixed colors like this; red/black and orange/black.  No whited or metallics.   Oh well!  At least Iv;e got some to work with.  And I’m sure I can make that turquoise ‘go with something’.  hehe

Now to decide what I want to do with them this year?!?!

It’s really been TOO HOT to do much of anything the last 2 weeks.  I’ve mostly been doing ‘prep work’.  Things like folding paper for paper rosettes for Christmas ornaments; cutting cardboard boxes to size and gluing them together for crowns (covered with vintage sheet music) stuff like that.  THEN when I’m REALLY in the mood to craft, I can go full speed ahead on the creativity part.  

What are YOU working on these days?
