Haunted House Craft

I'm not the only one who started thinking about Halloween early...

I love Cathy Holden's Haunted House luminaries. I haven't decided how I want to display them after I make them, but I'm excited to try different things!

So visit her page at Just Something I Made for directions and template.


Catch Up

One thing I've learned about myself in the last year is that crafting while working full time and planning a wedding is hard. I'll begin a project for a major holiday, get busy, and then finish (or almost finish) the project after the holiday is gone.

Then it seems pointless to post the project and I feel defeated. Feeling defeated is not good for starting another project.

My other problem is that even when I finish a project, like my canvas art project for my office, I don't want to spend another hour, staying till 8 PM in my office hanging everything. (The canvases have been sitting in my office for over TWO WEEKS!)

So what is a girl to do?

Glad you asked.

I'm going to start crafting for holidays MONTHS in advance. Crazy you say? How can you can start Halloween decorations before Labor Day? How can you start Christmas decorations when you haven't even begun decorating for Halloween?

Easy. I'm just going to do it. And then I'm going to put it up on here and you'll just have to deal with it. Hopefully it will inspire others to make my craft their own and still have time to do it before the holiday.

So that's the game plan.

Let's see if I can do this.

And James, please remember:
