Holiday Stocking Stuffers

Hello! I can't believe Thanksgiving is this week. I don't know about you, but the holidays sure do like to sneak up on me! It's time to start thinking about holiday gifts. This year I plan to either make gifts for friends and family or shop local and handmade at the Crafty Wonderland Holiday Sale (which I will also be a vendor at this year).

This past weekend I listed a few bundles in my Etsy shop. I am now offering a set of 3 packs of my Scout Badges (one of each kind), Peace Sign Pins and Peace Sign Friendship Bracelets! These are perfect for any of you Santas out there looking for cute stocking stuffer ideas...

Dia De Los Muertos

I recently discovered Family Band and had to share this video today in honor of the Day of the Dead. Enjoy!

The group is by artists Kim Krans and Jonny Ollsin. They are also the makers behind The Wild Unkown. I just love Kim's illustration style. Especially her deck of Tarot cards. If anyone is wondering what to get me for Christmas, I would LOVE to have this :)

My Trip To Virginia

Last weekend I took a trip to Norfolk, Virginia to visit my sister. She moved there from Portland earlier this year to work at the Navy hospital there. This was the first time I've seen her since February! My mom was already there (she traveled there a week earlier). We had a lot of fun and I thought I'd share some of the Instagram photos I took while I was there.

First off, we found a $5 store (I didnt even know those existed) and I loaded up on Lisa Frank Halloween stuff! We had lots of fun playing with all the pencils, eyeball erasers, and stickers.

We made curried pumpkin soup in a pumpkin!

And we took a walk through Teresa's neighborhood (before the Hurricane Sandy hit). We saw lots of spooky haunted houses...

We also stumbled upon a bird and wildlife preserve! I even found a few flowers still hanging on before winter.
These flowers are called White Wood Astors.
And these are Beauty Berries (love that name!)

Did I mention how much Teresa and I love Lisa Frank?

And lastly, on the night when we got hit the worst by the hurricane, we stayed home, watched movies and carved up some pumpkins.
This is what it looked like outside her front door on Monday morning (the day my mom and I were supposed to head home but our flight was cancelled).
Luckily, we made it home safe and sound the next day (Tuesday). Our flight was the second plane to leave the airport that day. What an adventure!
