Well, I’m trying to get back into my craft room again as I seriously need to get cracking if I’m going to be making any Christmas crafts this year.  I haven’t even started planning any ideas!!!

To get my mojo flowing, I decided to make a few Halloween items this week (I’ll be – hopefully – selling them off at work since I don’t need any of this stuff).

I didn’t do too much – a few treat bags with notebooks, push top pencils, and some candy, as well as some individual items.

I also picked up a couple of containers at Dollarama yesterday to display the “loose” crafts but they were kind of ugly in a weird sort of way…the boxes were a nice shape and they had a “cute” vampire and Frankenstein on them but the print around the sides of the boxes didn’t really go with the characters…so strange!  Luckily, I had a sheet or two (or 100) of patterned paper I could use to redecorate the boxes.

Here are the pencils (I’m selling them as “wooden stakes”):

…and here are some of the note “BOOks”:

They’re displayed in one of the redecorated boxes (excuse my shiny vampire):

I also made some lollipop covers (Frankie could also use some dusting powder to reduce shine!):

If these don’t go at work, I’ll have lots of treats to give out at the door on Halloween night!
