Happy Halloween


Saw this great quilt design and had to share it! The craftsmanship is really unique and looks great. I am wishing everyone a safe a blessed Happy Halloween! Have fun with parties, trick-or-treating and all the other fun that Halloween has to offer but remember to create lots of cherishable memories by spending time with loved ones and family!

Halloween Necklace


  • Crayola® Model Magic® – White
  • Craft Twinkles® Glitter Paint – Multi Twinkles

  • Crayola® Pointed Scissors
  • Yarn
  • Craft Sticks
  • Wood Rolling Pin

  1. Flatten and cut white Model Magic® Fusion® into the size and shape of a ghost pendant. To make a reclining figure like the one shown, create a long ghost with a bottom that comes to a gradual point. Roll this point around your finger so the necklace yarn can pass through the spiral.
  2. Bend the hands to hold the pumpkin and necklace.
  3. Shape and decorate a tiny pumpkin. Attach to the right hand of the ghost, as shown.
  4. Add ghost eyes and mouth with dots of glitter paint. When dry, brush a thin layer of glitter paint over the ghost. Let dry.
  5. Thread the yarn through the bottom of the ghost, around the back, and through the left arm. Reinforce any pieces with glue.

Halloween Tips For Little Ones Safety


Planning For Trick-or-Treating

1 Choose costumes for your child that fit properly. Kids can easily trip and injure themselves if the costume drags on the ground.

2 Make sure all costumes are made of fire-retardant material.

3 Apply makeup instead of having the child wear a mask. If she insists on wearing a mask, make sure there are sufficient air holes around the nose/mouth and large openings for the eyes.

4 Look for  a costume with reflective pieces on them, especially on the back. You can also apply reflective tape to the costume yourself.

5 Arm your child with a flashlight and cell phone, so she can easily be spotted and reached.

6 Plan ahead and discuss with your child which routes you will take and where to meet if you get separated.

While You Are Trick-or-Treating

1 Make sure children, generally under 12 years old, are accompanied by an adult at all times.

2 Remind kids of importance of walking instead of running. Don’t allow kids to cut through yards or alleyways.

3 Teach children to only go to houses with a porch light shining and to never enter a stranger’s house under any circumstance.

4 Make certain kids know to walk on the left side of the road, facing oncoming traffic when sidewalks are not available.

5 Check all candy for possible tampering when you return home. Check for open wrappers and seals broken and discard these!
