Dare to Share #133

It is Friday night, which means one thing... 
It is time to Dare to Share! 

This week was one of those weeks, when we had something every single day.  Kara had three trips to the Orthodontist (two unplanned), and 2 dance classes.  Kyle had robotics, and I had a girls night out. (more on that this weekend)  We have also been making some plans for Halloween. Instead of making a costume completely from scratch this year, I think we are going to embellish a few from the costume bin.  Here is what else we have been up too

Kara helped me with the decorations this year. She asked if she could do the mantel.  I was quite surprised when I saw she had used all black items.  I have to say though, I really love it. You can read more about it in the post Our Halloween Mantel.

My Olaf Pumpkin  was one of those projects that sat unfinished for a couple of weeks.  I finally finished him this week, and I love him. He just looks so happy for Halloween. 

I will be sharing a post about a special thing we did for a girls night out event this weekend. We did something that I hope to do again.  It was a fun time, and we got to take something really cool home.  

I wanted to mention something else that is new.  My Shop (found in the tabs at the top of the blog)  is officially open.  I do have some Halloween items in there right now, but will soon be adding several Christmas items as well. 

Did you catch the Features of the Day this week?   I found this baby sushi costume by Do Try This at Home to be super cute and easy to make.  I also happy to love to eat sushi, but only the real stuff.  

I definitely want to try and make some glowing owl candles like the Crafty Lumberjacks shared. All you to make then are a couple of items, that you might even already have on hand.  

Another cool way you can customize your candle votives is with this technique by Let's Make It Lovely.  You can find this glass votives at the dollar store, and really beautify them into something that looks like it cost a lot more.  

Did you see the awesome recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Covered Cherries by  my co-host Kim from Kandy Kreations share this week.  I am definitely going to be making these as well.  Chocolate covered cherries are one of my favorite candies of all time, and I have to have the very same pumpkin mold Kim used.  YUM!! 

Now it is time for this week's party.  You can link up anything that you would like to share. Your post will be seen on two blogs for double exposure.  If you are chosen as a Dare to Share Feature of the Day, you post will be featured on the blog, FacebookTwitter, Pinterest, and G+

Now link up and HAVE FUN!
