October = Halloween!

Happy October First!  Happy 30-more-days-til Halloween!  I don't know how much time I'll have to decorate and/or make any costumes this year, but it doesn't stop me from buying books and checking out all the fun projects out there.
 I picked up the annual Martha Stewart Halloween Handbook.  They re-use a lot of the same material from previous years, which is mildly disappointing.  There were some nifty things in the magazine, but the outfit that stuck out the most was this one:
What a fun spider baby!

The other book was Halloween with Matthew Mead.  Excuse my craft ignorance, but I have no idea who that person is.  They had some fun party theme pages, like the pirate one and the killer tomato one, but my favorite was this little purple monster eyes cake!  They used fondant and styrofoam balls for the eyes, which is sort of no fun.  I would want to eat those eyes, so maybe they should be cake pops instead.

    Matthew Mead used to be a Country Living Magazine Guru and I LOVE his ideas.
