AW, YEAH (say that in a rapper kind of way- practice it now)

My most productive time of the year (craftily speaking) is approaching quickly. Usually, I would defer the privilege of changing my blog until October 1st, but since that's Wednesday, and since that's a weekday, and since I'm insanely busy during the week, you're getting the Halloween stuff early.

And since I had such huge demand last year for my Halloween playlist (well, in my house anyway -sans hubby- who rolls his eyes at me during most of the month of October), it will make it's 2008 debut shortly.

AND, if you're reading this on Facebook and wondering, "What the heck is she talking about? I'm looking at a boring, white, Facebook page." Then, my dears, scroll down and click on "View Original Post" and, voila!, you will be at my magical, Halloweeny-flavored blog. UNLESS, of course, you hate Halloween, then don't. I like Halloween. A little.

You can bet there will be monster pizzas made this month, as well as caramel apples, hopefully some delicious apple cider
Hot Cider

2 qts. apple cider
½ cup brown sugar
¼ tsp. salt
Wrap the following ingredients in cheesecloth:
1 tsp. whole allspice
1 tsp. whole cloves
Dash nutmeg
3” stick cinnamon
Slowly bring to a boil, cover, simmer for 20 minutes. Take out spices.

will be made from a recipe that I got from Marsha's blog, and YOU KNOW I'm gonna read a ton of Edgar Allen Poe (and probably quote it on here- lucky you).

Yea! I love this time of year.

And to just kick things off (ahem):

"'Will you walk into my parlor?' said the Spider to the Fly,
'Tis the prettiest little parlor that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlor is up a winding stair
And I have many curious things to show you when you are there.'"

(You may now do an evil Bwahahahaha laugh...)

Nice page. I like I like! I wish Brandon would do craft things with me. He's more interested in eating the candy corn and playing with his matchbox cars.

Have you seen the Spider and the Fly illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi hanging around the library at your school? It's fabulous.
