Another last minute halloween decoration for you!  These sweet little ghosts are more cute than scary.  They go together super fast, so you still have time to make them before Halloween!

Glow-in-the-dark Spooky Eyes for Halloweeen

Halloween is my favorite holiday.  What can I say, I love any opportunity to wear a costume.  I was the child who never grew out of playing dress-up.  I can’t say that I’m the type who always has fantastically elaborate or super-creative costumes, but I do enjoy getting the chance to make my own costume every year.  The last few years I’ve also enjoyed making my daughter’s costumes.  Last year I even made my husband’s.  I’m usually scrambling to get them done in time, because I never start early enough, but this year I wanted an excuse to finish a historical garment that was already mostly done (my 1910s dress), so I had some extra time.  I’m not the sort of person that likes extra time so I decided I should throw a Halloween party.

My daughter started pre-school recently and so it’s always a mad rush to get out the door.  In the interest of full disclosure, I am not an early riser by nature.  I want desperately to be the sort of mom who gets up at 5 am and goes to the gym and comes home and cheerfully makes pancakes before 7 am, but I’m really not that person.  I’m the sort of mom who rolls grumpily out of bed 30 minutes later than planned and microwaves instant oatmeal and eats it standing up.

I didn’t really plan to fall off the earth after Vegan MoFo.  But between a nasty cold and a problem that keeps causing my arm to go numb whenever I type for more than a few minutes, I haven’t really been up for blogging.  Bad timing, since I’m in Halloween crunch mode with costumes to be made and a party to plan.  Not time to lose a week!

Thanksgivukkah

Thanksgivukkah.  Do you know about this?  If not, you need to.  Basically, Hanukkah is so early this year that the first day falls on the same day as Thanksgiving.  Evidently this is so rare, it will not happen again for 70,000 years.  The reason behind it is super complicated, so just go with it.  Or check out this FAQ.
