Halloween Link Party

Everyone's Halloween links are amazing!  I have really been enjoying the party so far.  I was hoping to be able to comment on every single link like last year but so far it just hasn't happened.  I love looking at everyone's projects though and hope that you all have had fun visiting each other as well.  I hope to have all of our decorations completed by next Monday so I should have more time to make the rounds then.

For those of you who have been following along with my medical drama, I had an appointment with a specialist today and it looks like surgery is inevitable.  They have a theory as to what is going on and have put me on a medication that might help.  If it doesn't help I will need to have exploratory surgery and even if it does help, surgery will eventually be necessary to fix the problem.  Not exactly what I wanted to hear but it will be nice to know for sure what is going on.

Anyway, I am currently working on some big projects that I hope to finish up today.  Halloween is my favorite time of year and I refuse to miss out on Halloween crafting and blogging because of some stupid little health issue.  :)  It has affected the social side of blogging though.  It's hard to keep up with emails and commenting on posts when all I want to do is lay on the couch and watch mind-numbing TV.   It is also affecting the shop which will be partially shutting down on Thursday and won't open up again until sometime in November.  I will create a page listing all of the items that are in-stock and ready to ship out.  Everything else will be unavailable for a few weeks.  So if you really want something - make sure to get your order in before Thursday.

Alright...on to happier things...like some fun Halloween Party features!  


These Bat Hair Clips from Michon Design are adorable!  I want a pair to wear year-round.  :)


Closet Crafter shared an amazing tutorial for making your own Chocolate Candy Molds.


I love this Rustic Wood Coffin from Sew Woodsy.  We were hoping to make a coffin prop this year but due to time and money, we had to cut it from the list.  We will definitely be making one like this next year though.


If you don't have the space for a full-size coffin - check out this Deluxe Mini Coffin from Klucking Bear.


These Googly Eyed Busts make me smile.  :)  Design DNA also linked up an awesome Spell Book that you should check out while you are over there.

Thanks to everyone who has already linked up!  You can continue adding links to the party below.  If your project was featured, feel free to grab a button from my sidebar.

Ugh! The prospect of surgery is never fun, but if that is what it will take to get you well, then maybe that is what you need to do. Hope you continue to improve!

I am such an idiot! I'm sorry - I totally just linked up the wrong projects to this party... I wanted to link up just the Halloween wreath, but then forgot because I had to reload and then just come back to the page and I put up some random stuff. Please delete so I don't have to be shamed by my own absentmindedness... sorry! : (

And I'm so sorry about the medical stuff... try to think of it as one step closer to the end of the pain and yucky stuff. Easier said than done, but that's the bright side I've come up with recently!

Thanks so much for the feature! I really enjoy your blog, especially all the Halloween stuff - you do Halloween so well. Hope your surgery goes well & you have a quick and relatively pain-free recovery.
