Boo! It’s Baking Time!

We love inviting friends to stop by before trick-or-treating. It gives the kids (and parents) a chance to mingle and play before heading out as a group. It’s a good idea to have an activity or two planned before the guests arrive. The Foodstirs Halloween Ghost Cookie Kit is the perfect crafty project for this holiday. This delicious kit includes Foodstirs premium sugar cookie mix, a ghost cookie cutter, organic powdered sugar, organic chocolate chips, easy step-by-step directions, and a fun facts card!  Continue Reading…

My favorite motif to accessorize in is the spider (even though I cringe at the site of a real one), and this year I was inspired to make hair accessories—specifically fascinators— for the girls. My girls and I make one every year for New Year’s Eve, so I thought why not one with spiders! Continue Reading…
