it's starting to feel a little spooky around here.

Life is busy, busy, busy as usual.

We're in the midst of prepping for a big Birthday party (Carson's #2) and a gender reveal party this weekend (for baby #2)!  Much more to come on those festivities...

But, we can't let October pass without some spooky fall crafts.

This project was quick, easy and perfect for a toddler.

All you need are:
Just draw eyes with your paint pen
(and if you're 2 and that's not enough, add whatever else you'd like).
 Then cover with cheese cloth (we used two layers per ghost) and screw in the eye hook.
 Now we've got a whole lineup of ghosts in our front room!
 And a few more watching over the front porch.
Carson even has a very special "Trojan triceratops ghost" watching over his bedroom (he's proving to be a very dedicated USC fan despite the rocky football season).

Happy Haunting!


  1. Whitney,
    I get the best ideas of things to do with my soon to be 3 year old granddaughter. We're headed to Austin on the 24th of this month. I'll be taking some Styrofoam balls and cheese cloth.
    Happy fall, can't wait to hear the great news...boy or girl?

  2. HI Whitney, I just sent you an email via Facebook and it's going to your "other" folder. Would you mind reading it and replying to me? Basically I am asking for permission to use one of your photos of your son's incredible IKEA hack play kitchen.
