When I first met Shannon I knew right away we would be great friends. She is organized, quick on her feet, creative, and she put up with my crazy all summer long! But the thing about her that instantly told me we would be besties was that she had an obsession with halloween almost as big as mine.
Seriously though, we are huge halloween geeks over here. It is just such a fun time of year! Fall weather, spooky stories, creative + crafty decor ideas. It probably helps that we both can't get enough of creepy + horrifying movies or television shows (actually though, have you seen the new Exorcist show?! It is beyond amazing, check it out if you are into that stuff!).
Here are a few reasons why we love this holiday!
There are so many fun things you can do with pumpkins! Paint, paper, felt, carving, glitter, thumbtacks, glue, anything you want! Get creative with this one.
All the scary, all of it. Now this is not to say that you can't watch scary movies all year long (cause trust us, we will watch a good horror flick anytime), but there is something about watching a line up of halloween themed movies in October that make them so much spookier. Also, what goes better with movies than popcorn! We like to mix in reece's pieces with our popcorn to give it that little bit of sweetness.
Being creatives we love the idea of being able to craft our own costumes. Making something from nothing is one of the best feelings in the world. Halloween provides us with this window of opportunity to dig deep and get truly creative. Here is a costume Shannon made for her puppy this year!
