Does anyone else call October Halloween month? Just me?
I'm sure by now you will know that I love Halloween. I love the excuse to dress up, (not that I need an excuse) and all the parties and the fact that it is Autumn and the trees are dropping their leaves and everything is so pretty. October is also my boyfriend's birthday month, and this year he turns 40, so it's a pretty big deal!
We like to have an early Halloween party to combine with his birthday celebrations, and this year we are going to have a pirate themed one. Since our house is already full of pirate/skull decor, there is not too much we have to do, but I have been looking up traditional recipes for grog. I am keeping my costume a secret, but I have been having fun decorating my accessories, and I still need to practice my makeup. I will share photos after the event. There may even be a makeup tutorial video.
AND, to celebrate Halloween, and to help you get started on your Christmas shopping early, EVERYTHING in my Etsy shop will be 20% off for the whole month of October, 2018. No coupon code needed, just stop by. Don't forget, I am open to commissions, so if you have something in mind that I don't have in my shop, let me know and we can work something out.
