Monday’s Made It Myself Halloween Party Invites

Sorry I had to cover the address and contact info... my house can only hold so many people! 🙂

Over at You Had Me At Craft, she has a challenge every Monday called, Made It Myself Monday’s.  This weekend I have been working on invites for our Halloween Party.  This will be the first Halloween party I have thrown in our new house.   Anyone that knows me, knows that I love Halloween and the other house we sold was in a neighborhood where the surrounding community would bus in the kids…LITERALLY!  We would have close to 300-400 trick-or-treaters each Halloween. 

This was sooooo up my alley, so I would spend the month decorating, make my big run to Costco for candy and on the big night, I would have an open house for close friends and family where I would make homemade mac and cheese or chili and pull out my COSTCO sized bags, a stool and sit at the door from 5:30-8:30 passing out candy non-stop.   It was so much fun!

Our new neighborhood does have its share of trick-or-treaters, but since we live on a cul-de-sac on a hill, we don’t get many of those little folks decked out as Tink or Spiderman.  So I am taking this in my own hands and throwing a party!

Thank you for coming and sharing a piece of “Made It Myself Monday” pie with me!

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.
