Day 13: My very own Halloween tree with 13 ornaments with vintage-y Halloween goodness!
My daughter helping put on the ornaments.
a close up of the ornaments. I'm hard pressed to pick a favorite, they are all so cute. I love the cat sitting with the broom, but I'm strangely drawn to the skeleton too.
day12: druid day!
She embroidered me this awesome druid symbol with celtic knotwork and flames. and then there are all things leafy. a notebook cover, mommy/daughter leaf hair clips, leaf stamp (which my daughter proclaimed as hers... haven't seen it since), leaf cookie cutter, 2 leafy candle holders, a bunch of autumn leaves for crafting, a cool little tree charm, a leafy wooden disc necklace, and an awesome tree embroidered goddess doll. I am in awe of her embroidery skill, I can never get my stitches that neat!

Day 11: candy corn and clippy day:
A huge treat jar with handmade cover and lots of candy corn and marshmallow ghosts inside...(well there was lots of candy inside), 2 hats in candy corn colors for each of my girls, a candy corn amiguri, an awesome little shirt, a candy corn tin with 5 hair clips inside - 2 spider, 2 pumpkin, and a candy corn.
Everything is so cute. Here's a close up of one of the clippies:
I asked my daughter which was her favorite... can you guess?
Day 10: Kitchen day
An apron, 5 washcloths, a hot pad to match the apron, and fabulous embroidered towel of a cat, a cupcake wand and baking stuff to make a "magic rainbow cake"
The awesome apron: I love, love, love this. I need to throw a party to show this thing off!

And the completed cake (I said I never could get the hang of decorating a cake, but I did this with the three year old and it turned out beautiful:
Day 9: Magnet day
A trinket box, 3 flower magnets, and 5 halloweeny ones
Day 8: Picture day:
A Boo set of letters, 2 Salem witch pictures, a haunted house picture frame, a fall theme tin sign, and a happy Halloween banner.
The boo letters above the doorway from the entrance way to the living area, where the tricker treaters will see it.
I put up the salem pics right by the front door too
I'm putting up the banner in my cubicle for some last minute decorating, but I don't have a picture of it.
day 7:Decoration day
Spiderweb coasters straight from my wists, 2 Halloween votive holders with a witch and cauldron on them, and a little pumpkin dude.
Day 6 - day of the dead
I got a cool tote bag, the yellow pom pom fringe makes it almost too cute for words. A matching date book (cover is reuseable), a frame with roses and a skull, tiny dangly skull earrings, a skully keychain based off of a hair clip on my wist , and a yard of fabric for my very own (mwah ha ha ha)
close up of the earrings and the skull on the frame
Day 5 - no reason day
2 flower headbands for the girls (or me if I'm feeling the 60's groove), a soap kit and booklet. I've already read through the booklet and can hardly decide which soap to make first. A scarecrow necklace kit, and the most bestest (yes I know grammar, but these are just too cool!) tea gloves straight from my wist done in a lovely wheat color.
the necklace kit all made up, my daughter wanted to make it "right now!", so we did.
The great and wonderous tea gloves. This item was why I was trying to teach myself crochet!
Day 4- 3 Spiders and a witch
a crocheted spiderweb and spider, 5 kid friendly spider cups and a cute little crocheted witch named Lily
a close up of Lily. Love the toxic green hair color
And the spider moved her spiderweb straight up to my globe in the office, so we can chat as I type.
Day 3 - monster day
A cute blue monster
An embroidered onesie that says cute as hell and has a ruffle bum
And a spooktacular skully wreath
close up of the wreath
Day 2 - 2 great jack-o-lantern pillowcovers which immediately found homes on my couch
And Day 1
A 13 days of halloween countdown calendar with pockets for trinkets and treats.
They are big enough for index cards so I can put in events like go "pick a pumpkin" or "take a hay ride"
close ups of some of my favorite pockets. It's perfect.
