Halloween for Dummies.

1.Don't bother to decorate your house when you are going to be gone much of October and have to put it away the day you get back.
2. Don't use scarce, valuable, free time to make crafty Halloween things when you should be planning things to do in London or Packing.
3. Halloween will still happen, even if you don't have that cute banner you saw at Miss Shelly's house.

4.Halloween Decor can be purchased quickly and cheaply at walmart and doesn't require a specialty fabric store that carries giant ric rac , amongst other extremely cool stuff like vinyl fabric.
5. Get king sized candy and you'll be the bomb, whether you decorate or dress up your whole yard or not.

So now that the rules have been clearly stated, and I have established that I am a Halloween dummy.
I have to share.
I've see these cute fabric banners all over and figured I didn't need to reinvent the wheel. Just do a "case" study. Copy And Steel Everything.How hard can it be? How long can it take?
I made a huge mistake when I walked into Material Girls, a little store in South Jordan. I was so blown away by all the fabric that I immediately started planning in my head about 20 years worth of projects.
Anyway, I grabbed what I needed, went to town, ignored the fact that I have a family and any other responsibilities or things to do, like plan and pack for a trip.

Love my cricut. Love even more that Boyd could fix it after I dropped it.

Fabulous Fabric and several hours later.

I didn't like that the letters were too dark to show up guessed it. I went for round two.

We always do better the second time around. (Don't tell that to your first child though, not cool)
Then I couldn't possibly put a lonely banner up so I dug out the decs and and got festive.

and just so you know I am a total dummy, I WILL NOT buy king sized candy!
