GREAT STUFF! “So many ideas!!! Halloween is my favorite holiday and this will be perfect next year when I want to do something different.

Great decorating ideas! –“Halloween is becoming a more and more popular holiday, and a big reason why seems to be because of how much fun it is to decorate for. In Artful Halloween the focus is largely on the more grown up, elegant ideas for the holiday. Pumpkin decorating has come a long way since I was a child and there is a whole section devoted to embellishing pumpkins with suggestions like paint, studs, chains and stickers.”

      They really look neat, I never got into the Halloween spirit until this year now that my daughter is 3-years-old my mom gave her decorations for our house, and she decided to decorate the whole inside of the house by herself, she is really proud of her work lol. I think it will be a good idea to make some decorations of our own, and do other crafts for great memories. When payday comes I'm getting one of these books, I want to start a collection.
