Halloween Party Food

Eclectic Handmade Creations - Halloween Party Food

Happy Halloween!

You’ve picked out your costume. You have decorated your home into a house of horror, or just a little spooky to keep it child friendly and fun.

Halloween Decorations

Nothing quite puts you in the mood for a holiday or a party, quite like decorations. Having spooky bats, wicked witches and ghastly ghosts flying around the house may delight or frighten you.

Halloween Party Ideas

There isn’t much of a history of celebrating Halloween in Australia, however the Halloween fever is slowly spreading to this side of the pond. It has come a long way since it’s early UK heritage, these days the young children celebrating it wouldn’t be able to imagine the origins of their favorite sugar filled holiday.

When it comes to Halloween, there are two groups of people. There are those that love it and those that loath it. I suppose there is a third group of people; those that really just don’t care. Mr Hubby is in the last group but I do suspect that my yearly insistence on celebrating Halloween may cause him to learn to loath it, or if I’m lucky he may even learn to love it. Hey, a girl can dream can’t she?

Appliquéd Towel Tutorial

YAY!!!! It is finally here!!!!! The LONG awaited tutorial on how to applique on a towel.

This cute little towel is for the gorgeous little Miss S for her first birthday. Her lovely Mum, Mrs V has decorated Miss S’s bedroom with pretty little butterflies everywhere, how could I pass up the opportunity to do a butterfly theme for her towel.

My first Photo Challenge

I know, I know… this post’s title doesn’t sound much like the sewing tutorial I promised you I was going to do. However, this is a super fun and exciting post topic. I will still be bringing you the sewing tutorial as promised, very soon. My taste in craft/design/creating is very eclectic and something new and/or different can easily excite me, I know I have a very short attention sp… Oh, something shiny!
