DIY Halloween Snowman

Despite what the groundhog says, it’s still winter in Oklahoma. Today is the first good snow we have had since 2011! So I thought it would be fitting to share my DIY Halloween Snowman (which was meant to be shared for Creepmas….but I have had some crazy life events happen that I can’t wait to share with you soon!).

I have had the idea for some time now to Halloween-ify a thrifted Christmas decor object, and what better object to Halloween-ify in the winter than a jovial snowman. I think I was inspired by on my favorite and the silliest winter horror film “Jack Frost” .

The True Tale of Elmer McCurdy: My Family’s Ghost Story

The bizarre yet true tale of one of my ancestors, Elmer McCurdy, is an example of when the dead don’t die (cue Sturgill Simpson now).

My dad shared with me that all McCurdy’s in the U.S. were descended from the same Scottish family that came here many years ago – therefore we claim Elmer McCurdy as a long lost uncle. He is notably the most famous family member I have, but famous for the wrong reasons.

What makes his story so bizarre is that he was not laid to rest until 66 years after his death.  He had just as much of an interesting life after death as he had during his life. He’s the outlaw that just wouldn’t give up and still haunted the living…

DIY Valloween Cards

Nothing says “love” like a handmade spooky Valentine to celebrate Valloween! I’ve been working on making some Vallow-tines and wanted to share the doodles and phrases with you in case you are looking for some inspiration for spreading some scary good love to your friends and family!

Making homemade valentines is super nostalgic to me. It brings me back to my grade school days when we would make homemade shoe box sculptures to hold all of our paper valentines. I’ll never forget the one my parents helped me build that looked like a red Razor scooter. Those scooters were all the rage…and I think they’re making a comeback!

Keep reading to see photos of some of the Vallow-tines I’ve made:

Desiccated Animal Skull Decor

animal skull decor

This might be a gross idea to some, but I think old animal skulls make interesting decoration pieces for Halloween. If you ever use an animal skull, be sure you properly clean the skull first to avoid bringing anything yucky into your house.
