Halloween Skull Coloring Page

Halloween Skull Coloring Page! Hey Friends!  Check out the fun new coloring page I made for you!  I’m super excited about it because it’s a little unique for me!!  My style is usually a little more warm and cuddly than this and usually appeals more to kids.  But this decorative skull is pretty, modern, just a tiny bit edgy and sure to appeal to a more grown up audience (although my six year old grandson G1 insisted he needs a copy…

Pumpkin Walk

Every Halloween the city of Syracuse, Utah puts on a spectacular display of pumpkins, carved and painted!  It’s one of our family traditions to attend The Pumpkin Walk every October. I love to walk among the jack-o-lanterns with my grand babies.  Bundled up for the cold, with red cheeks and noses,  they run from one pumpkin to the next, oohing and awing and telling the rest of the family, “Look at this one!  Look at this one!” The kids get…

Mummy Bottle

My sister loves wine and Halloween.  Her birthday is the 22nd of October so the month is doubly special to her.  She has dozens and dozens of cute and scary decorations that she puts up in her house and most years she has a costume party to celebrate Halloween and her birthday.  My other two sisters and I have traditionally given her Halloween decorations for her birthday.  A couple of years ago I decided to combine her love for Halloween…

Creepy Crawly Spiders!

In keeping with the spirit of Halloween, I decided to write a post about Spiders!  I wouldn’t go as far as to say I “like” spiders, although I wouldn’t say I “don’t” like spiders either (unless of course they are crawling on me or going to bite me, I certainly don’t like that!).  I have a cousin (whom I now know is completely crazy – sorry RCT!) that had a picture taken with a tarantula on his face. Although he…

The Ghost!

As I laid on my bed, relaxing before it was time to turn in for the night, my 23 year old daughter sat on the cedar chest at the foot of my bed, visiting with me. It had been raining most of the day and we could hear that it was coming down pretty steady at the time. Somehow our conversation got around to spirits, ghosts and demons. My husband likes to watch ghost hunter shows and mostly I just…
