Jo-Ann's Halloween

Spooky Fun

A small part of the Halloween decor at Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts includes black glass pumpkins
and slate signs.
Yesterday was a good day! I had the day off and time to shop.
Over the last several months I've been sewing and crafting things using 
supplies from Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts. 

They've asked me if I want to show off the things I make using their supplies in
exchange for free fabric and or gift cards.

I'll have upcoming crafts for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas too. 
All using Jo-Ann products.

Today I went to my local Jo-Ann's to get my supplies for my Halloween decor craft.
The store was full of inspiration.
So full as a matter of fact that I found myself just doing research.
I needed to go home and stir around all the ideas and then go back to get the supplies.
I just could not decide what to make...too many choices!
I could just buy any of this and add it to my Halloween stuff..but that's too easy.
I like to make stuff...and that's what I'll be doing.
I really liked that little owl on a perch...but I resisted.
I need to decide upon my Halloween theme before purchasing anything.
I have to say Jo-Ann's had the cutest stuff I have seen this season.
A big long row full of great spooky decor!

After Jo-Ann's I went by to see what Target had for Halloween.
They were still working on getting their stuff out and didn't have a lot yet.

But I did notice a sign saying 
"Pumpkin Spice M&M's"

What?
Unfortunately they seemed to be sold out right now.

But the next row over was...

Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses. 
I bought a sack of these.

If you let them melt in your mouth rather than chewing them...it's like having a miniature 
Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Yummy!

Well, now I feel like I've really started my Fall!

I shall refrain from ranting about what JoAnn's is like to work for, other than to say I'm grateful I no longer do! I will admit they have some cute Halloween stuff this year. Nothing you couldn't improve upon with your creativity, though, Nita!

I'm that way too.
If it's too much, I have to go home and "think".
I'm excited to see what you do because you do Halloween SO GREAT!

I wished you hadn't said that those kisses taste like Pumpkin Spice Latte! I've resisted them until now! THANKS Nita! LOL!

Alas, still no Halloween colored M&Ms this year. I Love that owl on the perch!

Oops, I think a Pumpkin Spice Kiss might have dropped into my morning coffee (will be what I say after I buy a bag tomorrow!)
