You Better Watch Out, You Better Not Cry

Every year I look forward to Halloween. A few weeks ago I was having Halloween withdrawels, so I decided to go and see if any of the stores were putting out their Halloween stuff yet. I paid a visit to JoAnn Fabrics. Since JoAnn's begins stocking friggin' Easter and Valentine's decorations the day after Christmas, I knew I could count on them for a Halloween fix.

Their stuff this year wasn't anywhere near as interesting as last year's, but there were a few things that stood out. I liked the bat cookie jar ($14), but I can live without it. Intead, I opted to buy a personal pack of Halloween-themed tissues made by Swankie and a Halloween cross stitch project (click image to enlarge). I'm so not gifted when it comes to sewing or anything, but I do enjoy doing small projects like the mini cross stitch projects offered by NeedleMagic. It's as big a commitment as I'm willing to make.

Such cool stuff! Halloween isn't a tradition around here, so I always see the cutest things when you post about it in your blog. Thanks! :)

Mariana-
Aw, I didn't know that! I brazenly assumed Halloween transcended the International Dateline! You would totally love it, if you like spooky goodies. It's the one time of year I look forward to each year! One of the few things that really makes me happy. I'm glad you like the Halloween post(s)! :D
