This year Kyla (Funky Polkadot Giraffe) and I decided we should have a Halloween shindig.
Kyla designed this fabulous invitation!
We invited a few of our fellow crafty bloggers and friends!
Kyla made these fancy schmancy name tags!
The house was super spooky with spiderwebs and skeletons.
We made these with Kara-Noel at our last craft night!
And my son had to have this ugly guy from the dollar store!
Loved these cute snack buckets from Target's Dollar Spot!
Everyone brought a little potluck and we feasted!
Tasha teaches a fabulous tutorial on making fabric pumpkins!
I decided we should make them at the party!
Aren't they so adorable?!?!
Kyla made these fun Halloweeny headbands for all our guests!
And I made some appliqued pumpkin towels for the winners of the best desserts!
It was so fun, and I can't wait to do it again!

I love the colors of fall, and I love the colors of candy corn!!
Somehow, they're just so perfect together!
I had to make a tribute outfit.
TA-DA!! Here's my candy corn cutie!!
Oh, and check out that cute candy corn bow!
You can get your own here.
You know candy was involved to get this sassy girl to pose for pictures.
This little candy corn cutie is mine all mine, but you can make your own!!

This is me with my awesome sister Tricia.
She makes the best pesto ever.
The greatest thing is that she married the greatest basil raising man EVER!
I just happened to be at their house at the last big harvest.
Oh yeah, it was my lucky day!
And now it's yours!
Here is the recipe for my sister's fab pesto!
2 C Fresh Basil Leaves
3 Garlic Cloves
2 Handfuls Pinenuts
1/2 C Olive Oil
3/4 C Parmesan Cheese
3 TBS Butter
Mix all ingredients in blender or food processor.

We had a delightful lunch at The Filling Station Cafe, unlimited lemonade refills, yes!!
And some tasty little morsels from Miss Priss Cupcakes!
I got to snuggle the 2-week-old little darling of my friend Kara-Noel from Eli's Lids. I was in HEAVEN!!
After all the yumminess, Mark Montano gave us a bio/Q&A of his crafty adventures!
