Halloween Costume Ideas: 2018

Now that October has arrived, Halloween is fast approaching and I need to get on the ball for some costume ideas for J and I!  Just for fun, here's an old throw-back to one of our first Halloween's together!  Wow---look at those babies!

I've been scouring Pinterest and the Interwebs to try to find some of the best (and easiest, because let's face it, this Mama doesn't have time for much these days!) Halloween costumes that the collective Halloweenies of the World have concocted.  Here's some of my favorites:

1.  Jack & Coke

Ahh, the simplicity!  Plus, I may be fully tempted to go trick-or-treating with a tumbler of Jack & Coke to keep me warm (#nojudgement).  I mean, a couple t-shirts, some jeans, and Chucks and done.  This is at the top of my list for obvious reasons.

2.  Dr. Grant & Ellie Sattler

Channeling my inner 90's child has me all sorts of giddy on the inside!  Plus, I could dress my kids up as dinosaurs and that would just make me every kind of happy!  BUT, imagining myself as a blonde Asian kind of makes me a little squeamish on the inside---I don't think it'd look quite the best for me.  IF one of you chooses to do this for Halloween, PLEASE send me a pic!!

3.  Chip & Joanna Gaines

This duo makes my heart go pitter-patter.  They are true #relationshipgoals and I think that J and I are pretty much on the same level as them.  Their quirky humor, the way they joke around, plus their obvious chemistry always makes me think of us when I see them on HGTV!  So this costume idea speaks to my heart in more ways than one (I mean, this one is pretty simple, too!  I'm sure I have Joanna's outfit in my closet right now, just because I love her style!)  I could even create a printable like these two!  Who wants one, too?!

4.  Bob & Linda Belcher

Now my good friend, Katrina and her husband, went as Bob & Linda Belcher one year.  She totally inspired me to want to do the same!  Katrina is amazing and does some great Cosplay work (you can check out her Facebook Page here) and I would love to be as creative as her with fabric and costuming ideas!  This one, I really think I could pull off.  Plus, she made Lexi a Louise Hate and I'm pretty sure that still fits her... hmm....

5.  Clark Kent (Superman) & Lois Lane

This costume duo is perfect in the sense that you don't even have to change after coming home from the office on Wednesday night!  I could make J just wear a Superman T-shirt to work all day under his suite and when he gets home, he can unbutton a bit and ta-da!  Insta-costume!  It actually makes me want to make a cute Press Pass printable, too!

What other Couple Costume ideas do you have?  What would you like to dress up as?  Is there anything you'd like me to curate and turn into a free printable option for download?  Comment below or drop me a line anytime!

Top 10 Tuesday: 12 Days of Christmas Movies

Well, so instead of a Top 10, I'm changing it to a Top 12!  Because I love The Twelve Days of Christmas and I love Christmas movies and why not combine both together to make it 12 Days of Christmas Movies!?  I suppose we each all have our own opinions as to what Christmas Movies are *must-haves* on our Watch List, but I would like to think there are some that just generally required, by public agreement.  So, here's my Top 12 Days of Christmas Movies List, complete with a FREE Printable so you can make this a Holiday Bucket List Item, if you'd like!  I'd love to hear if your favorite movie made the cut or not! OH---and one more thing---these movies are certainly not listed in an specific order, they are more in the order in which I may or may not have already watched them... (#SorryNotSorry!) 12.  The Santa Clause (1994) When this movie first came out, I was totally entranced by the interpretation of the North Pole, courtesy of Disney Magic, that I almost bel

Tutorial Tuesday: Strawberry Pie

I am a little bit sad that Sale-A-Bration 2018 is coming to a close this month.  Stampin' Up! has had some amazing products to give away this year and I have seen some really creative uses for extending their life! Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs is no exception!  I saw her use the  Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  and make a pie card!  It was so stinking cute, that I just had to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it and share my interpretation with my Papercrafting Passionista Friends!  PS: The Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!  So you can get this adorable embossing folder with a $100 purchase (it's a part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle, which is a $100 Reward) and  the embossing folder is carrying over to the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!  So you'll be a step ahead of the new products!  Wow! Here's what I used to make this sweet card: Supply List: Fruit Basket Bun

Tutorial Tuesday: Fold Over Gift Box

Happy Tuesday, Everyone!  I hope that your week is going well!  Can you believe that August is half-way over??  I have seen lots of Social Media posts about kids already going back to school; the kids in my area go back next week!  Eek!  I imagine that means that there's a lot of last minute shopping, meal-planning, and organization happening for many households.  (Or all households, really.  I mean, everyone has shopping, meal-planning, and organization to do!) Well, I'd like to share with you a quick and easy 3D project that you may be able to utilize for this busy Back-to-School Rush!  I shared it with a group of ladies a couple weeks ago at a Crop Event and it was huge hit! This multi-purpose Gift Box is super versatile!  You can use it if you want to present your kiddo's new teacher with a little summin'-summin' to start the year off, as a special way to present a home-baked cookie treat to a loved one in their lunchbox, or if you need a vessel to hold some
