My three year old is obsessed with Halloween. He loves seeing all of the Halloween stuff in stores. A couple of weeks ago he saw some shirts in the store and I decided I needed to make him some Halloween shirts.

This is a super last minute post, I actually had something else planned for today but decided I wanted to share this instead. This isn't sponsored, I wasn't asked by Cricut to share this but I think it is an important message and I thought it was really cool that they were doing something to help spread it and I wanted to share it some more. I won't get all soapbox-y about it but I think kindness is something that we need so much more of in the world and when I see initiatives that promote that idea I want to share.

A few days ago I shared how I transformed a dollar store foam pumpkin by wrapping it with yarn. The next thing I did with one of the other foam pumpkins that I bought was cut it open and fill it with flowers.

I was at Dollar Tree the other day with my daughter, she earned a trip to the dollar store as a reward for doing something really hard. While I was walking around waiting for her to choose something I was looking for things I could use as craft projects.

Today I am participating in another Craft Lightning round. This is when a bunch of craft bloggers share super quick projects (15 minutes or less) that go along with a specific theme. This week the theme is Party Crafts.

Have you ever been sucked in by the pretty colors in a skein of variegated yarn, buy it and bring it home and wonder what you were thinking. You try a bunch of different stitches and/or patterns only to have everything you try look terrible? The colors pool in weird ways, or all of the colors look really busy and you can't see the stitch definition?

I have a 3 year old who has been obsessed with Halloween lately. He has been talking for at least the past month about what he wants to dress up as, and it changed on an almost daily basis. We have heard everything from Batman, and Catboy, to a vampire, Chewbacca or the Hulk. Now that Halloween decorations have started coming out in stores he has gotten even more excited.

I know it is barely September but I am definitely feeling ready for fall. I think once the kids go back to school I am ready to make the switch from summer to fall, and even more once September hits. Part of that is wanting to start working on fall and Halloween projects.

Cricut recently came out with 4 new tools for the Cricut Maker and I just got them a few days ago and had the opportunity to try them out. All 4 tools are part of the adaptive tool set that works only with the Cricut Maker. There is the Basic Perforation Blade, the Wavy Blade, the Fine Debossing Tip, and the Engraving Tip.
