Getting in the Spirit

Who is ready for Halloween? It will be here before we know it and I don't know about you but I've had a hard time getting in the mood so to speak. When it is between 90 and 100 degrees who is ready to think about pumpkins, comfort foods, ghosts and gourds?


Thankfully over the last week we have had some relief here in Texas! Although we don't have the extreme seasonal changes I am slowly but surely getting ready for all the wonderful smells, cozy blankets and all of the fun fall festivities!


So in order to get my creative juices flowing I disappeared to Michaels tonight with no kids to walk and stare and ponder. I was trying to come up with a fun Halloween craft for an upcoming blog hop that I've been invited to.  I wanted it to be simple, cheap, and quickly reproducible!


Well....I just can't wait to share this little cutie! Seriously he is so cute that I am willing to totally stress about coming up with another Halloween craft or idea for Marilyn's upcoming Creepy Crawl because I just want you to see this little guy.


Most of you probably have a few of these around the house right?

Well if you add a little of this....

and a couple of these



  you get the most adorable little guy I ever did see!

Seriously..I can't get over him.  He needs a whole family but I would have to go dig through boxes in the garage to give him some siblings so we shall see if he ends up being a lone mummy or not.

So for now I will just stare and he will stare back!
