Pumpkin Giveaway!!

PUMPKIN GIVEAWAY
I absolutely love Halloween. I just love dressing up, and having fun. There are so many fun ideas out there. This year I have added an awesome witch, these pumpkins, a wreath, and some other little handmade goods to my decor. I will post a picture of my witch soon, because it did turn out pretty awesome.

My memories of Halloween as a child are very different than things are for kids now. At least in big cities. When I was little we went door to door with a pillow case to fill up with tons of goodies. No trunk or treating existed then. It snowed quite often on Halloween, or at least it was usually freezing.

Now, I live in a place that is hot and humid most nights. I still wonder why they sell those heavy fuzzy costumes in a place like this. The poor kid would roast to death. Oh, and carved pumpkins don't do well here either. They go moldy the next day. I think when I was little they just froze solid, so they were good until February. Please don't keep your decorations out past Halloween! It is still fun, and I still look forward to the spooky events that come with Halloween.

Keep scrolling for the giveaway.
Here it is, my first giveaway. I actually entered another giveaway for a cute little pumpkin, and I didn't win. So, I made my own and an extra one to give away. The giveaway will end on Saturday October 24th at 8:00 p.m. I will use random.org to find the winner. The winner will be announced on October 24th p.m..

  2. You are so talented! that pumpkin looks so cool. My favourite costume when I was little was a 'Jem' costume. I had this sweet pink shiny wig and a rockin 80's outfit I wore it for a couple years in a row and when I out grew it I made one of my younger brothers wear it.

  3. My favorite costume as a kid was Princess Leia (am I spelling that right?). I had braids wrapped around my ears (I can't remember if I could hear very well or not) and wore a white dress. It was great.

    I hope I win!

  10. You are so creative. I love the pumpkin and everything else you make!! My favorite costume (or the first one the comes to my mind) was dressing up as a Harley Davidson girl. I wore lots of black leather and a long black wig with a bandana. I was teaching 4th grade and my kids couldn't even recognize me. It was great!!

  19. Hi Melissa, how are you? Let's see...I can't really remember any costumes when I was a child - I think my mom got some kind of space alien costume for me when I was really little, with a pink wig and a silver star sticking out the top of it...mostly I remember spraying my hair black and painting my face white and leaving it at that. Hey Jodi, remember that Halloween party we went to at Ricks? I think I wore some strange shirt of yours and painted my face white again. No one recognized me.

  20. I was Wonder Woman for probably three consecutive years...sometimes with one of those lovely plastic-face mask, sometimes without. Always with my tinfoil wristbands :).

  21. I have a cute story from just the other day.

    My husband said to me "do you know where and when I go that gray and red striped sweater in our closet?"

    I said "yes, I bought it for you at Old Navy along with your other ones"

    He didn't remember that but is very excited to use it for his 'Where's Waldo" costume this year!
