A Long Overdue Halloween Post!

Here we are, halfway through the month of October, and I have posted next to nothing about Halloween! What a travesty!

Being in school all week and having to re-do the majority of our condo has really put a dampener on my normal Halloween activities. I don't have the time or space to do many crafty things or decorating.

I did decorate the door of my dorm room.

Cute, right? The eyes are construction paper and the "wrappings" are white streamers. I've gotten lots of compliments from the people on my floor.

I do have a couple of new additions to my Halloween collection. I had a brief quilting lesson from the mother of a friend of mine. She is a very talented quilter and seamstress. She makes tons of quits for her family for holidays and I was lucky enough to be included because my friend, Veronica, mentioned that I love Halloween. So here is the absolutely beautiful (and comfy) quilt that she made:
The front side.

The back reminds me of candy corn. And it's super soft!
I am absolutely IN LOVE with it! I really need to learn to quilt!

If you follow me on Tumblr, Instagram, and especially Pinterest, you will see several Halloween and autumn posts. Feel free to peruse any of these.

On Tumblr, I found this and fell in love: Heather Franzen: a Halloween comic.

Feel free to look back on my past Halloween posts. I have party ideas, some costume-making, Halloween songs, movies, and TV show episodes, some crafts and more. Here is a good one of activities to do in Colorado around Halloween: Haunted Houses, Corn Mazes, and Pumpkin Patches, Oh My!

I hope everyone is enjoying getting geared up for Halloween! What are your favorite Halloween-y activities?
