This past week I was very happy to notice that my blog had 100 followers! Actually, I'm at 101 since that time and I'm very grateful to all of you. It means a lot to me to that you take the time to read my thoughts. The insightful and often funny comments are always appreciated! So thank you all very much for being here.
If you were one of my first 50 followers, you might remember my giveaway for a 4 x 6 inch Halloween art print. I'm doing a similar giveaway this time, only for an 8 x 12 or 8 x 8 inch Halloween art print. All you have to do is visit the Halloween section of my Deviant Art shop:
...and let me know which Halloween print is your favorite in the comments! I'll draw a winner next Thursday.
Last week, I was lucky enough to win a prize, myself! I won a set of Martha Stewart Halloween bottle labels! I was sent this prize by my blog buddy, Raven Fae, who happens to be giving away prizes every week up until Halloween! You should really check out her blog, not only for a chance to win, but because she's a cool lady who makes some great little Halloween creatures. Here's a link to her blog:
This is a photo of my prize...
Now I just need to find some bottles to put these on. I tried the American Science and Surplus tent sale last weekend, but there were only little bottles there. That's a great place to go if you need parts for a mad scientist costume, or are looking for a gas mask (adult or child size). There weren't many interesting things to buy, otherwise.
I'm hoping to find some bottles at either a Joann Fabrics store or at Pier 1. If any of you know of a great place to find bottles, let me know!
Oh, and I have one more thing to share. Dollar Tree is selling garlands of leaves for Autumn. Some of these are glittered. I was lucky enough to find one of the remaining orange, glittery garlands. It made a very quick addition to my witch hat!
Attaching the garland was really as simple as just wrapping it around the hat and then knotting it around itself at the top.
I think it gives the hat a little extra magic. It's as if it belongs to a witch that lives in a cabin in the forest. At least that's what I imagine. I had to share this right away, because Dollar Tree seems to be selling out of these garlands quickly!
To give you an idea of how glittery these are:
There were some non-glittery garlands as well. I feel like the spokesperson for Dollar Tree lately. Well, for the Halloween products anyway!
