I am SOOO EXCITED about this giveaway!!!! EEEEKKKKK!!!! For those of you who don’t know, I am a Halloween FREAK!! My mom always made Halloween fun for us with decorations and throwing creative parties, and it is a bug that has never left my system. The sight of a smiling pumpkin simply fills my heart with joy! Interestingly, the first tutorial that I ever did for this blog (back when it was called Craft Quickies) was how to make Halloween Firecracker Hair Bows, which is something that my mom did for my sisters and I. So this Halloween giveaway is a celebration of both my obsession and my two year bloggiversary! 🙂 Here’s a picture and link to that first-ever tutorial. Isn’t my model INSANELY cute?! She and my son are now five, and she told my son out of the blue last week that they were engaged. He looked confused and then shrugged and replied, “Ok.” 🙂
Back to my Halloween OBSESSION: I have been decorating my house for two days (distracted by little ones, of course) and I’m only about halfway done. Expect a Halloween House Tour next week! I am so excited to share! And that Halloween obsession is why I decided to organize this Halloween giveaway!

Now let me show you the Halloween haul that I have for you this year! I wish I could keep it all!!!! (Alright, fine, I’ll fess up: I bought two of almost everything that you see so that I could keep it all. True story.) 😉
What a haul, right?! Let me break it down for you . . .
* It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
One of my favorite Halloween movies. We love the Thanksgiving and Christmas ones too! Nostalgic and completely and utterly innocent. I love it.
* BOO! Accent Pillow
“Cute up” your couch in a hurry! I love simple holiday decorations.
* Three Sparkly Halloween Garlands (Skeleton, Owl, Pumpkin)
Again with the simple Halloween decorations —- PLUS these decorations have the glittery bling factor!. I currently have at least five of these hanging in my house. If you think I am kidding then you must not know me very well. 🙂
* Mini Glitter Pumpkins
Because it’s all about the bling, about the bling, no matte finish… 😉
* Glittery “Trick or Treat” Pumpkin Hanging Sign
You may be noticing a pattern here…..
* Halloween Oreos
They are magical. My dad doesn’t believe me, but he is wrong. They DO taste better than regular Oreos. Trust me on this one. THEY DO. 😉
* Orange and Black Baker’s Twine
Who doesn’t love Baker’s Twine, right? Use it to wrap up goodies and treats or for crafty endeavors — whatever! It’s just fun!
* Halloween Nail Polish Colors
Not all grown ups want to wear pumpkins with pumpkins on them, but anyone can pull off a festive mani!
* Three Rolls of Halloween Washi Tape
Who doesn’t love Washi Tape?! (Don’t know what to do with it? How about a Halloween Washi Tape Frame?)
* Cheery Jack-o-Lantern Candy Dish
Need I explain? Doesn’t it just make you HAPPY? 🙂
* Mini Cupcake (or Muffin) Baking Liners
They are sure to make any baked goods that you make for a Halloween party as cute as can be!
* Halloween Sticky Notes
My college roommates used to shake their heads at the sheer volume of sticky notes I had tacked up all over the apartment, and then a friend who said she was also a sticky note fanatic saw my apartment later in life and said I may have a serious problem. Haha — I can’t really argue! So, yeah, I love sticky notes and I love Halloween. It’s a dynamite combo!
