Trick or Treat!

October is almost here, and that means it's time for Halloween! Autumn is my favorite season, and I love Halloween: the candy, the costumes, the smell of candy apples.. Halloween wouldn't be the same if it wasn't in the fall, in my opinion. I'm still trying to decide what costumes my kids should wear this year. This is the first year I'll have two little ones to dress up, so I want it to be good! I don't know yet if I'll be making something or not. Last year my daughter was Little Red Riding Hood in an outfit made by me, and the year before that she was a bumblee, also constructed by me. Do I have to keep making her costumes now that I've done it two years in a row? We'll see what we come up with...

I do know one thing, my daughter is set for a Trick or Treating bag! Every kid needs an awesome bag/bucket/receptacle for all of the goodies and treats they'll be getting! I personally think that all kids should have something with at least their initial on it, especially if they have siblings. I remember many fights with my brother when I was a kid over whose plastic pumpkin was whose. Of course I have a solution!

Avoid the fights, the bickering, the whining with these emboidered treat bags! Available with either just an initial, or the initial and name of your child as well as the super-cute ghost, and topped off with ribbon! These bags are really sturdy (think reusable grocery bags) so they'll last for Halloweens to come, and hold lots of loot. For more information, check them out in my shop.

October also means that my coworkers will be spending more time hanging out at my desk; every October I keep a treat basket on my desk stocked to the brim. Candy = happy workers.

Happy Fall Y'all!

Holy Lunch Bags, Bat Man!

Has it really been over a month since I've blogged? There goes my mid-year resolution to blog regularly. Since you've last tuned in, I've been a busy girl. I had a large order of lunch bags to embroider (34 total, whew!), and I'm finally completely finished with them. Talk about a sigh of relief. So now it's time for clean-up, and to get ready for the holidays.

I keep thinking of fun things to make, and hopefully I'll be able to make them all soon!
