It’s been a minute since I’ve posted here! I could make excuses, but no one likes to hear that.
Life has been an absolute whirlwind – I know it has for all of us all over the world as we work through a global pandemic (I never imagined we’d be living in a science fiction movie…) but I hope everyone is being safe, has plenty of TP, is staying healthy and taking care of themselves.
Something I’m also taking care of right now is my wonderful, precious BABY BOY due August 21, 2020 (my husband’s birthday!).
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” .

Happy New Year, Halloween Heads!!! My blog has been in some dire need of love and attention since I’ve taken a break and have been fully engulfed in the holiday hustle and bustle…so to start off 2020 right and to start counting down the days until Halloween, I’m launching a NEW LOGO!
My incredibly talented, kind and sweet brother (who also designed my original logo) gifted me the coolest thing – a framed photo of new logo designs and a flash drive loaded up with said artwork to share with you. This is just what I needed to give my online presence a refreshed identity as we hop on our broomsticks and fly into the new decade.
Just like that, we move from Halloween to holiday gift giving. Some of us enjoy the holidays with a bit of spookiness in the mix, so I’ve curated a list of some of my favorite “Creepmas” gift ideas and items to help you celebrate or shop for yourself or that spooky someone in your life.
You better not pout, and you better not cry because you can celebrate Halloween all year with these gifts – just gotta make sure you’re on Santa’s “good” list and that Krampus hasn’t paid you a visit instead….
The bad news I got this fall was that my braces will have to stay on a little longer than I had anticipated – but the good news is that I can pull off a Mabel Pines costume this fall without any problem!
Mabel is the brace-faced twin sister to Dipper Pines on the Disney series, Gravity Falls. I love the paranormal and supernatural adventures that ensue during Mabel and Dipper’s visits with their Great Uncle (Grunkle) Stan. They also help to run his tourist trap “Mystery Shack” – with a plot line like this you know that it is full of spooky fun for all ages (my all-time favorite episode is “Summerween!”).
Keep reading to see how I decided to make the most of having adult braces during Halloween by becoming Mabel Pines!
I love Bob’s Burgers on Fox! It’s always been one of my favorite shows and the humor is always spot on. I love it so much so, that I decided I had to copy Gene Belcher’s Halloween costume he made this year.
I was surprised at the end of the recent episode because it actually features Fiona Apple singing the closing credits. Check out this Pitchfork article to see a photo of Gene’s Fiona Applesauce costume I was inspired to create and to learn more about Fiona apple’s special song for the Halloween episode.
I adore Fiona Apple’s music, so I knew I would equally love being her saucy aunt for Halloween.
If you want to see how I become Fiona Applesauce, keep on reading!
