Get Your Spook On

My favorite holiday has always been Halloween.  I was always jealous of those people who were lucky enough to have their birthday on Halloween (you know who you are!).  Maybe next year we'll be able to make a mini haunted house, but for this year, we have the ominous Oogie Boogie* overseeing Charlotte St, and some additional treats for you. 
*note that for those in search of that perfect costume, Oogie Boogie can be yours!  That cold Halloween North Carolina night will be so much warmer inside your soft pillow of cotton goodness (see last photo).  

There are a lot of delicious projects in here (yes, glue and scraps can be delicious)!  But by far, our favorite artist featured is Ann Wood.  
Check out her blog at http://www.annwood.net/blog/
We love her use of vintage textiles and garments, buttons, wire, lace.  And even the tiniest remnants are useful. 

Do you know where your children are........?
Why yes, they are collecting milk jugs, grocery bags and plastic water bottles for their masks, scary signs and hanging spiders! 
One thing we like about this magazine is that since there are so many projects, after this years' fall holidays you can put it away with your decorations and use it again next year. 

Call the exterminator: bats and rats abound, but this rat is made out of  a sweater, so it's a cute furry rat!
No black plague to worry about here!
Rats, Bats and lanterns, oh my! 
 I am the shadow on the moon at night
 Filling your dreams to the brim with fright.
