Blogging + Halloween + Giveaway!!

Did anyone catch the Martha Show on Blogging?? I just finished watching it (love the DVR.) It was neat to see an entire audience of bloggers with their laptops writing about every little detail, I'm sure. I really enjoyed seeing the two ladies who created this blog, 3191, A Year of Mornings, which is now a book. Something so simple.. two women living 3,191 miles apart just taking a photo a day for a year. I had read their blog back when they first started it. It was a brief segment on them but it was neat to see the ladies behind the blog. They also had the writer of Cute Overload. Ever check out that site? It's just, well, CUTE!

The photo a day blog got me inspired to take a photo a day for a week or month. We'll see if I actually do it with these two but I thought about doing it anyway. HA! As I'm writing, Bella's in her little jumper and drool is dripping on the floor. I call her water works these days. I put bibs on her during the day, that I change constantly because she SOAKS her clothing.

We bought Halloween costumes this week!! SO excited! Holidays are already so much more fun with little ones. I'm not telling you what we're dressing them up as :) BUT.... leave a comment on what you THINK the costumes are and I'll pick a random winner next week and send off some goodies.

I'll leave you with a Halloween project created by the wonderfully talented Robyn. Eek! Speaking of cute.. Isn't that bat the cutest? Thanks Robyn for the inspiration. Go visit her blog. She has the prettiest card posted.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

What a cool idea to use flocking on the bat! Love it!!!

My guess on the costumes is Dora and Diego... only because that's all my two talk about these days.


Kimmarie said...

very interesting info. Must go check it out. I haven't flocked yet.. not sure how to. Love what Robyn did with eek! I am guessing Raggedy Ann and Andy because they are two cute kids just like your babies with their big smiles!

As for the twins, don't count me in the giveaway since I'm on the DT, but I'd still like to guess just for fun.... how about bacon & an egg?! LOL ;-)

I really like the letters, such creativity, and yes, it is inspiring to see the different takes on the same projects. As for the costumes, I am going to guess a cute little pumpkins, fairies would be cute too!

Love your card and love all the details. Flocking is just perfect for the bat.

My guess for costumes are salt and pepper.

Thanks for a chance.
